Aug 1: Switzerland National Day and My Swiss Bucketlist

Every 1st of August, Switzerland celebrates the Swiss National Day. It is the date of the Federal Charter of 1291, Pacte du Grutli when “three Alpine cantons swore the oath of confederation” (Schwyz, Uri and Unterwald), an action which later came to be regarded as the founding of Switzerland (source: Wikipedia).

726 years have passed and Switzerland stands firm and marvellous like its gorgeous Alps, serene surroundings and wonderful people.

My Swiss Buckelist

This country is still on my bucket list. And here are some of the things that I wish to do and places that I will travel to some day:

  • Set Foot on the Alps of Jungfraujoch


  • Traverse Grindelwald

Grindelwald Switzerland

  • Ride the Swiss Train or Glacier/ Bernina Express

  • See the whole of Interlaken via the Harder Kulm

Interlaken Switzerland

  • Tour Bern
  • Explore Zurich

My heart just leaps for joy every time I go over my Swiss wish list. There is just something about this stunning country that makes everyone in the world visit here.

Isn’t Switzerland gorgeous?

Cheers to Switzerland and Happy Swiss National Day!

Hi There! Thanks for reading and welcome to my blog. I am Lyn, a mom to two adorable daughters, currently residing in Adelaide, South Australia. I have lived two countries, visited 3 continents and can't wait to travel more. Photography, arts, kids fun, family travels and all things inspirational delight me. I am not born affluent but I can attest that dreams do come true with perspiration and inspiration. Lucky enough to be given a second life, I don't want to waste my time not being able to create beautiful moments. Because what we do with our time is what we do with our lives. I hope I can inspire you in your life's journey.

    Yes, Switzerland is super gorgeous. A bit pricey, but definitely one of my favourite countries!

      Thank you Eye For a Pic. That’s how inspiring Switzerland is for me. =) I can imagine it to be really breath taking.

        It certainly makes the Scottish mountains look like small fry! Lol!! I’ve not been to Switzerland itself, but I have been skiing twice, once in the Austrian Alpes, once in the Italian Alpes, both were fantastic places 🙂

          hahah. Been to Germany and Salzburg too once but not to ski but just marvel at the Alps . If only I knew that these are a few hours away to Switzerland, would have planned it out. =) Well, it’s not just time. Thanks for sharing Eye For Pic. Scotland is gorgeous as well. cheers.

              Well, the earth and imagination are vast indeed. And we are only limited by our minds. Take your time and pleasure, Eye for a Pic. Cheers.
