Sitting in Switzerland…

It’s good to sit down after a long day at work, or a hike through town. Or just because you want to treat yourself to a coffee/wine/chat with a friend. Here are some of the more interesting sitting places I’ve come across this year.

img_0738First of all, summertime in Bad Ragaz. (Johanna Spyri’s Heidi passed through here on her way up to Grandfather’s hut on the Alp.) I don’t know who these two gentlemen are, but it was a lovely seat in the sunshine.

img_0901Fast-forward a few weeks. We’re in Zürich, and it’s pumpkin time now.

 

img_0902No one was taking advantage of the blankets and furry seat covers this pavement cafe provides for its customers.

 

img_0903Nor here. But by this time the rain was starting, so I decided to call it a day.

 

img_0900And on the way back to the station I passed this chap. He looks in dire need of a seat…

  2. Fun post and a unique outlook. I love the love the Swiss have for art and sculptures and every where you go there’s something on the streets to see. We were there this summer and I’ve started writing about my experience on the blog so have a look. Cheers
