Zürich – Switzerland
After spending 12 hours in Zürich, I was lucky enough to have yet another 12 hours day time in this stunning city and I decided to just walk all over Zrich by foot from one area to another. It is quiet small and easy to move around, a bicycle would be faster and more fun, but if you wish to just stop when you want, take a photograph or just stare while you get inspired by all the little details and breathtaking architecture, then do it by foot. Zürich is one beautiful gothic medieval city that is just full of yet more surprises coming out from every corner… An art piece, a city full of art, a trip to remember and to repeat. Love Switzerland.

Zürich – Switzerland
At this point and stage, I was just living, I let go of all my boundaries, and I decided not to plan my trip in Zürich, but to just join my beautiful friend who was very generous to take me around. Zürich is breathtaking, similar to Solothurn but much bigger and more cosmopolitan. Life is Zürich tempted me, and in my mind all I can imagine is living there in one of their guild houses, on the last floor with their gothic windows overlooking the cities lake and busy streets and night lights…
Healing thoughts: We live in a random life of a cycle that keeps rotating rotating and rotating until it stops… And who knows where it will stop.. It’s like gambling, you can live all your life practicing to predict where you will stop but even if you predict… it will stop anyway… Why bother? Why spend so much time searching for ways to predict ? What will it change ? What kind of preparations will be useful ? Just go round and round until it stops and your destiny is your destiny … Running from or to it will not help you form anything … Just be.. Be yourself, fill your life with the presence… Fill it with the instruments available to you today, fill it with the joy that is around you… The real joy is the joy of ones self satisfaction of nothingness. What is yours will always be yours and what goes away from you was never yours. So Believe… Breath and Be.

Where do I start from; for the love of architecture ? this town is breathtaking. It is all about the details, about the little pretty things, it is colorful, full of authentic colors, and beautiful people walking around, you would sense they should be in some sort of a costume, but they are not. The tiny shops, the bicycles, the flowers, the windows, the doors, the river… I kept wondering how do the people live here? It is such a small city, but it brings happenings into your heart, unless it is because I haven’t explored the outside of the center. Anyway, if you ever visit Switzerland, try your best not to miss visiting this unforgettable city that is just about 2hours away from Zürich by train.
