10 days in Switzerland (and a bit of France): Travelog!

How should you spend 10 days in Switzerland? Well, we're definitely not Europe travel experts - having visited only once in the last 5 years - so we can't answer that question definitively, but perhaps our travel video will give you some ideas!

We flew in to Geneva, did a couple of day trips to nearby French lakes and mountains, then headed gradually to Zurich via the Zermatt and Jungfrau areas.

In Switzerland, we traveled mostly via the excellent Swiss rail, ferry, and gondola network - offsetting some of the high costs with the Half Fare Travelcard.

Anyway you can check out the breakdown of the places we visited in the video; Do let us know in the comments if you've got any questions and we'll try to answer them to the best of our ability!
