Things you should know about driving in Switzerland

On my recent drive through Switzerland, I learned a few things about driving in the country before heading out, and I was glad I did! I just wanted to write up a pretty short little post here as a guide for any of you who might be planning on taking a little road trip through Switzerland. 

Navigating a Railway Strike While Traveling

I’m not going to say the French rail strike wasn’t a headache, because it was. Oh, it was…but it was also the cause of new opportunities and new experiences. I wouldn’t exactly recommend you try to go to France (or any country) in the midst of a massive transit strike (maybe, you know…wait a few months, unless you’re only going to Paris, in which case you’ll be fine), but I will certainly say that if you already have a trip scheduled during one, you should just adapt and go for it anyway. We ended up having a great time and added some interesting and enriching experiences to the trip. Yeah, parking was a pain in the butt at times. Yeah, driving sucks more than just sitting on a train, reading a book, and watching the world go by, but it was interesting, and there was also something to the freedom of being able to stop when we wanted to stop, and explore when we wanted to explore. And there’s something to that as well.

On Being Celiac, Getting Glutened, and Traveling

This post is specifically for my fellow celiacs and others out there who, for medical reasons, can’t eat gluten. If you don’t have celiac or a gluten sensitivity, I still encounrage you to read on because current statistics estimate that about 1 in 100 people suffer from celiac. Chances are, somebody you know has this issue and you just might be able to help them out in the future. For those of you who have been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that I suffer from celiac disease. I know better than most how hard it is to navigate the world when you have dietary restrictions, and it’s even harder when you’re traveling because you’re away from the things you know are safe to eat and figuring out what you can eat can be a minefield.
