Former Vice President Leni Robredo is still raving about the sheer beauty of Switzerland,even months after her visit.
From the Swiss alps, beautiful lakes to efficient trains, Robredo can’t stop gushing about the
jaw-dropping scenery of Switzerland.
She wrote a belated post about her Swiss trip about her friends asking about her trip and planning to visit the European nation.
While her Swiss journey in November 2022 was mainly for speaking engagements in Zurich, the former veep found time to take in the sights and sounds of Switzerland with her daughters and friends. The Swiss itinerary included a visit to film locations of the popular South Korean program “Crash Landing On You.” Robredo is a known K-drama fan.
“The train ride to Lucerne was less than an hour. We stayed there for just over a day and a night. Because Lucerne is a small city, we were able to go everywhere except the mountains. Lucerne is very pretty and very walkable. We walked everywhere,” Robredo said.
From Lucerne, Robredo and her traveling party hopped on another train to Interlaken where they stayed for three days. They also took a cruise on the breathtaking Lake Thun.
“From Interlaken, we did a cruise on Lake Thun (no boat trips along Lake Brienz for the season), visited the small villages – Iseltwald, Sigriswil, Lauterbrunnen, Grindelwald, Gimmelwald, Mürren, Oberhoffen, and Klein Scheidegg. We went to a lot of the CLOY sites😉” she said.
“All the villages were very pretty but Mürren was my personal favorite. The view of the Swiss Alps from there was breathtaking from any angle. It was there where I regretted not being with my girls so I did the next best thing – do a videocall with them😊,” she said.
Robredo met some new Filipino friends on the train, and they decided to explore Switzerland together.
“Swiss trains are the best and are so efficient. Switzerland is really one of the most beautiful countries I have ever been to,” she said.
While some sites were closed due to the season, the lack of crowds made for a more enjoyable experience for Robredo.
“I went in November. The bad thing about November is some of the sites are closed in preparation for winter. The best thing was that there were fewer tourists and it was the kind of cold that I wanted. Cold, but not yet below freezing,” she said.
