Here comes the proverbial question everyone is begging to ask you now: ‘What are your summer plans?’

And this is no ordinary summer where we can just blurt out and say you are going to fly out to some exotic country or to your top beach destination.

This year, probably the best and more prudent answer would be: local and sustainable.

Yes, go Switzerland. And why not? You would be amazed at how much you have "under-discovered" this amazing country. For sure, there must be some place where you have not trekked, visited or eaten! And by not flying, you are also reducing your carbon footprints and perhaps even saving a bit of money. If there is a time to help our local business, producers and economy, it is now!

So here is a tip: challenge yourself to find that Swiss spot to conquer and claim. Your humble guide is here with a few ideas. In each of my articles, I will highlight one possible destination - either a charming village, a nature trek, a culinary fancy or anything Swiss under the sun. Have a great trip!
