Switzerland is really beautiful. Here is a place that has snow even during peak summer. It does on the mountains at least. The many snow capped mountains and hills allow for a multitude of streams to cascade down the rolling slopes.
Jungfrau and Titlis are spectacular outposts and create the illusion of being in a giant treehouse during winter. It would be quite something to live on such a summit. To be surrounded by the vastness of whitewashed landscape is an experience to remember.
The people of Switzerland are a quiet lot and there isn’t a lot of visible activity going around. They do have lots of great cafes and quite a few of them provide hookah as well which only adds to the enjoyment of the quiet and rustic landscape.
“Though remarkable for patient and laborious thought, the true German is a joyous child of freedom, fond of manly sports, a lover of music, and a happy man generally”
— Frederick Douglass
“Turks were a great nation even before they adopted Islam. This religion did not help the Arabs, Iranians, Egyptians and others to unite with Turks to form a nation. Conversely, it weakened the Turks’ national relations; it numbed Turkish national feelings and enthusiasm. This was natural, because Mohammedanism was based on Arab nationalism above all nationalities.”
