SWITZERLAND

"It was a perfect midsummer day for enjoying everything the scenic Swiss wonderland has to offer: wooden Swiss chalets, wide lush green pastures, cheerful cows, glacier-fed lakes, steep mountain cliffs, magnificent snowy peaks, distant shimmering glaciers of ice and pretty alpine villages."  - Chef for Sail
