    Great post, if you’re backpacking through London and need a place to stay look me up, I just moved here from the states and have a couch you can probably crash on.

    Hey Lauren!
    I found your blog because I am researching how to get the most out of a business trip to Geneva. I will be there for a little over 3 weeks and have nights and weekends alone. I am in no way a world traveler having been out of the country only twice (st. Lucia and Jamaica). I loved reading about your trip but I was wondering if you would have any other additional tips for me since I will be there for a few weeks. If you do have anything you would like to share, please feel free to send me an email.
    Thanks in advance for any assistance!

  3. Hello, I will be staying in Murten for two weeks on business and would like to know if there is anything within range for me to see. I will probably have one weekend free. Luckily all my expenses are taken care of outside of my free time.

    • Hi Joseph! I did not personally go to Murten but several of my friends have and have said that it is a beautiful and charming Medieval town. I have also heard it recommended to take a boat tour of the lake as well as to the wine-growing region of Vully. I hope you have a wonderful trip. Switzerland in summer will be incredible!

  4. This is such an useful information. I am going to visit Switzerland next month. I can`t wait to see this gorgeous nature. I feel like I am going to spend time of my life there. Greetings!

    I agree with the solitude.. I’m here for studying and still I feel so lonely here.. I have friends and stuff but it’s dificult to meet sb to date with. But the nature is beautiful, indeed.

    Hi Lauren,
    I’m planning to go to Switzerland sometime this year and it would be the first time I’ll be traveling alone. I want to go to mount titlis. Any suggestions? I am just concerned of not being able to find my way around. Any advise?

    Hi Lauren,

    Thanks for the tips. I’ll be visiting for the first time (hopefully by September 2016) the Swiss Alps and Switzerland itself. Your tips are so great for me as a solo traveller, all the way from the Philippines.

    Looking forward to your other blogs. God bless and enjoy life.

    Hi…Lauren…. It seems we both share a common interest for travelling.
    I’ve been to Swiss twice, but would like to see it again on various trains like chocolate express, bernina etc.
    Yes alone… is it convenient to explore through these trains?
    Would like to go for 2 weeks from London.
    Ur reply will be appreciated.
    Kindest regards

    • Hi Mary! Glad to connect with a fellow travel enthusiast. Yes the trains in Switzerland are excellent. Rail travel is a great way to explore the country!

  12. “Combine these solitary activities with the lack of people and you will find yourself spending days alone in the wilderness wondering why you have no friends and what your purpose in life is.”

    I pulled this out from your post. It was interesting. I think most of us wonder the same things surrounding with people every day.
