Just returned from my Swiss adventure from April 18-28, 2019, and it was fun in an exhausting way. First off, I purchased my 8-day Swiss Travel Pass from HappyRail.com via the link on this website as it was the cheapest of all the options listed at the time. After calculating all the destinations I wanted to go to and the museums I wanted to see, it was the best option. Unfortunately, the Patek Philippe museum was closed at the time due to the Easter weekend. However, most stores in Geneva were open on Saturday during that time. Other than that disappointment, weather played a part in two of my destinations: Mt. Titlis and Zermatt/Gornergrat. Due to high winds, the Ice Flyer and Cliff Walk at Mt. Titlis were closed. The same reason also closed down Gornergratbahn out of Zermatt, so no views of the Matterhorn. So my advice is to check on weather conditions prior to visiting these locations. Luckily, I went by myself without booking a tour so I didn't have to deal with cancellations and refunds. Other than those two disappointments, it was a great trip through a beautiful country filled with nice people.

Thank you Steph, and here are some pictures. There was an error in the original post when I tried to attach them. It's hard to take a bad one when the country is so picturesque.

And rockoyster, being a noob to the website obviously I didn't know any better :)

Nice photos. My previous, garbled, reply was actually meant as a congratulation! 😇
