Flying to Switzerland with Swiss International Airlines was my first international trip for the year and I was so excited to head to a beautiful country and do some amazing things! I was especially excited about seeing lots of snow and I was almost obsessively checking the weather for about a month before our trip.
We didn’t have a direct flight from Cape Town so we headed to Johannesburg first and chilled in the lounge for a couple of hours before boarding our flight at about 8. Check in was a breeze which is always appreciated as I always get anxiety while traveling and when things run smoothly it really does help a lot!
I really loved the fact that our plane was on the smaller side so instead of three seats by the window side there were only two then four middle and then two again. That meant we could relax in our own little space. Time passed quickly, especially after a glass of red wine, a good meal and a few funny movies and before I knew it light started filtering in.
Seeing the Alps
I peaked out the window just as the first light was hitting the Swiss alps and I almost screamed I was so excited. Endless snow capped mountains with slightly pink mist swirling around them was definitely the perfect way to be introduced to Switzerland for the first time.
Our plane landed ahead of schedule ( our first taste of Swiss efficiency ) and then we were ready, bags in hand to go explore one of the most gorgeous countries in the world.
