Switzerland is an expensive country to visit.  For that reason, it may be a while before I get there.  However, if money were no issues, I would go as soon as possible.  And, I’d take my mom.  It’s literally her only answer to the question, “What’s the one place you want to go?”  While I doubt that I’ll ever be a skier considering my first and only time resulted in ACL surgery, Switzerland still has much to offer to the non-skiers.

My cow obsession has become increasingly worse.  So, naturally, one of the things I’m most excited about seeing in Switzerland are the cows.

This bridge is the longest pedestrian-only suspension bridge in the Swiss Alps.  The bridge’s length is 560 feet across a windy gorge and 330 feet above the glacial lake.  To get to the bridge, you must take a freight cable car ride over a ravine and then hike about 90 minutes.

How can you really say no to this?!  With a 675 foot drop and reaching speeds up to 55 mph, I know I’ll definitely be doing it when I go.

Climb the Via Ferrata

This is mountain climbing for beginners.  It involves climbing up a series of rungs that are bolted into the mountain.  Mountain climbing experience without worrying where to put your hands and feet.  Win. Win.

Ever been to Switzerland?  Did any of these places strike your interest?  Any suggestions for me when I finally do make it there?
