Hallo from Switzerland!🇨🇭

This week we toured the western part of the country, including Basel and Zürich. We’ll tell you more about Basel in this podcast and we’ll get to Zürich in the next one.

Aren rides a bike through the Lange Erlen near Basel, Switzerland. We haven’t had much experience with e-bikes, which give you a little boost on the hills, but these bikes we rented at the train station really picked up some speed.

Modern art in Basel: This is the famous spray-painted Bentley parked next to the Trois Rois hotel in Basel. Would you do this to your Bentley?

The Rathaus (City Hall) in Basel is made of red stone and has a distinctly Italian influence. If you’re taking a walking tour of Basel, it’s a must-see stop.

Don’t forget this week’s question: What’s your most expensive vacation? We can’t wait to read your comments in our next podcast.
