I visited Switzerland during my summer break it is the place I have loved. It was a family trip. How can I forget? The restless coach journey I had, while I patiently waited to cross borders into Switzerland. I had heard quite a few facts about the country also had seen many pictures of the scenery of the country. However being there is nothing compared to looking at pictures or watching te places of interest on television. This is the place I love so much. The scenery in the country was marvellous.

We could not hear any birds chirp nor was the place occupied by people. it was deserted owing to the height of the mountains and the climate. All we could hear is noise from fellow tourists. The place was wonderful. I felt like I was wrapped in nature's arms in Switzerland. The cold air, lakes, the green surroundings and the beautiful mountains that came along with a pleasant atmosphere.
