Travel and Adventure Journal

I wanted a place to journal all my travels and adventures around the world. I always enjoy going back and reflecting on my past travels and getting to relive them through my words and photos.

Zurich to Paris - Day 1 - Eurotrip 2008

Sunday, August 24, 2008 @ 11:00 PM in 2008 Europe Wedding

Today was one of the longest travel days I've experienced. Neeta and I flew from Albuquerque to Chicago where we had a long enough layover to get pizza with her parents. After getting back to the airport, we met up with Eric who flew in. Our next leg was a flight to Zurich which got us on the ground at 12:20pm local time. We had about 6 hours to kill in Zurich before catching a trail to Paris.

We mostly spent our time in Zurich aimlessly wandering around, trying to beat the jet lag. I remember being extremely tired and not really feeling like we had enough time before our train to really do much.

Zurich was a beautiful city and I'd love to go back and actually spend a little more time there relaxing. 6 hours just wasn't long enough.

Our train ride to Paris was about 4 hours long and got us in around 10:30pm. When we finally got to the hotel, we were all extremely wiped out from being on the move for as long as we were.

Note: This post was written about 13 years after I went on this trip. Unfortunately I didn't keep a journal so this is pieced together from our itinerary and photos.
