Glimpses of Life

Photography, Craft & Travels



We ventured to Zurich today. It took us about an hour by train. Weather was cool and by midday, it was really nice to walk around in just a light jacket. We visited the main shopping street – found the only English bookstore in Switzerland (we reckon!), a huge toy store and a chinese grocery store! 🙂 It’s a wonderful city to visit, not a lot of sights to see, but an eye-opener because it’s so cosmopolitan (much like SG!).

Here are some of the more memorable pics of the day…

Outside the Zurich HB – Zurich’s main train terminal.

Trams plying through the city.

Probably the ONLY English bookstore in Switzerland!!!

Some city sights…

And by the end of a day of walking, we could only manage these… (which are my favourite, by the way!! 🙂 )

You can view the rest of the pictures here. Hope you had a good weekend! 🙂
