Surprised by the quaintness of Zürich

Zürich enchanted us right from the outset. Expecting something of a super-urbanised banking city metropolis, we were surprised to find a town which was so quaint that it could be the setting of a nursery rhyme, with its gothic spires, cobbled streets and oversized clocks.

Český Krumlov, a Bohemian Rhapsody

Walking down the cobbled stone laneways of Český Krumlov early in the morning, it is easy to feel like you are stepping back in time. The streets of this South Bohemian town are lined with gothic, renaissance and baroque style houses, with large boulders on every corner, placed originally to avoid damage from the horse and carts cutting corners.
