The New York Times recently mentioned something that we in the travel industry continually talk about. Switzerland is still a great buy when compared with the U.S. Dollar’s unfavorable exchange rate in other Euro-based countries. The Swiss Franc and the U.S. Dollar are basically equal at the moment and they’ve been holding that position all summer.
If you’re going to spend money on a hotel room, regardless of whether it’s 50 bucks or $250, then you might as well do it in a place with Roman baths, World Heritage Sites, chocolate, cheese, yodeling, tinkling bells, accents that make you feel like you’re a foreign special agent on a secret mission,….well, you get the picture. Don’t lie awake wondering what could have been.
Incidentally, we still have space on our Appenzell tour, but the slots are going fast.
