Day 5 – Haiming (Austria) – Swiss National Park – Zurich – London

We left Austria early in the morning and made our way into Switzerland. The plan was to go for a hike in the Swiss National Park. Switzerland only has one official national park to this date. The sun was shining and the sky was clear so it was a lovely day to hike. The national park hike took us around 4 hours and then we headed back to Zurich.

We stayed in an airbnb accommodation. Zurich was pretty expensive as you can imagine, however we tried to keep the cost to a minimum and we bought a lot of swiss chocolate before heading back to good ole England.

SummaryĀ  – Austria was beautiful in its own right. Each town had a beautiful church surrounded by mountains and the people were friendly. When I planned this trip the idea was to go to Innsbruck. However I actually never went to Innsbruck. I drove past the city so many times and I was actually rather put off by it. Simply because I am not a big fan of big cities as I find them boring, it’s only a personal preference. So I avoided Innsbruck. There’s so much to see and explore in Austria besides the usual well known towns such as Vienna, Innsbruck and Salzburg. If you ever visit Austria and you’re a nature lover then head over to the Tyrol region
