Europe » Switzerland » North-East » Zug » Risch-Rotkreuz September 30th 2011

Here in Switzerland. The day is sunny, but a bit hazy. Still nice, however. The plane ride went very considering how long it was. Since it was an overnight flight, I spent most of it sleeping. That really helped me today. Spent most of the day in Zug. Zug is a small walkable city. ... read more

I flew on the Airbus a340 which is a beautiful plane. Their seats have cup holders and the LCD screen for movies and flight updates. I loved the fact that the restrooms were in the lower level. This means that you don't have that long line of people hovering over you while they wait for a lavatory. And in ... read more
