Skiing in Switzerland

Switzerland is beautiful. No matter what season you visit, you will be astounded by the spectacular scenery that blooms around you. Whether it be aquamarine lakes that sparkle in the sunshine, the world of green that blossoms over rolling hills and staggering mountains, or the snow that blankets the picturesque boxed chalets that lie next to frozen iced lakes where robins chirp with enthusiasm. 619 more words
