Hi :) take a look to my latest post about two beautiful countries! Which one do you think is more beautiful and why? Share with me your experience :)
Let me tell you more about these two beautiful countries, Portugal and Switzerland. They are both so beautiful that I can’t point defects to any of them. You’ll eventually fall in love, in different ways.
I’m 24yo and half of my life I lived in Portugal (actually much more than half). It’s impossible not to consider Portugal a bit as mine too. I studied, grew up, made friends. It would be at least weird if I’d change everything from one day to another and didn’t feel any difference. It has been really enlightening. I always thought that changing country widen horizons, but never thought that it would be so much to so little time.
Here the landscape’s hilly, the ocean gives place to the beautiful lakes and the air is really dry. The winter is much more colder, and even in the summer, it’s always a good idea to have a leather jacket and boots at hand. But don’t fool yourself! Sometimes the weather is really treacherous here and hot as well. In Portugal in the winter I’m always looking like an onion, I have layers and layers of clothes, and the summer? Well, the summer sometimes is hell on earth. Oh, and in Portugal you barley can see the mid seasons. In Switzerland you can see the difference between all seasons, and I love this. Mostly because my favorite season is fall (everything is beautiful, the air is different, the colors, the clothes…).
Here the people are so nice and always willing to help.
But my fave is that unlike Portugal, here they go for a walk in parks, museums, by the lake, everywhere but in malls. They go to malls to buy things if they really need something. And they have flowers, lots of wild flowers everywhere (my favorites). It’s like a fairytale.
And who knows me, knows that I love food. Here they have a lot of stewed food, and cheese (so many types of delicious cheese), and so many types of fondue. But honestly?! There is no better food than Portuguese.
And I think these are the major differences that you will find between Portugal and Switzerland. And if you intend to travel to Portugal or Switzerland and have any questions, don’t be a stranger. Leave a comment below, e-mail me or just send me a message.
