  1. This is why I love following your stories; you take us to places that, for some reason, are not much written about, at least in the blogging world. The library looks stunning! The abbey is quite an impressive sight too. This is why Europe is such a fascinating continent to explore — even in a relatively small country like Switzerland, there are so many places to see.

    1. You are so kind. Thank you, Bama!
      I personally think there is no boring place. Every town is special in its own way, for example, its history, architecture, food or perhaps its legends. We just need to figure it out. But well… there might be some exceptions ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. The Swiss town looks colourful and charming! I wonder how you even know about these tiny quaint towns, you must do a ton of homework beforehand… ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Not a ton. Just a few Google searches ๐Ÿ˜‰ Actually, I wanted to go to the Appenzell for some classic Swiss photos, but the transportation was so inconvenient and took too much time. So I ended up in Saint Gall (my plan B) ๐Ÿ™‚ Not a bad idea though.

      1. Unfortunately not ๐Ÿ™ I have never been in the southern part of Switzerland. Travelling around by train in Switzerland is not as cheap as in other EU countries ๐Ÿ™‚ Even their Swiss Pass (or whatever they called) costs a small fortune.

      2. Ouch! 50 franc per day just for transportation. The Swiss really knows how to earn money ๐Ÿ™‚ And you have to pay extra if you want to use cable car. That’s not cheap either ๐Ÿ™

      3. Yea I didnโ€™t think of it like that… I thought it was just a necessity, like hotel costs haha… But it was bloody expensive! The whole Europe holiday is bloody expensive!

      4. Indeed! And you chose even the most expensive country to visit ๐Ÿ™‚ I think the price there is even higher than in Scandinavian countries. The good point is their service is top. Sometimes a bit cold, but it’s fine for me ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. We have been to Appenzell on our 1st time to Switzerland and didn’t experience the pain of expenses at the time coz the in-laws are paying haha! But I haven’t been to St.Gall. I didn’t even know it untill I read your blog, good thing! So I can ask my inlaws about this and perhaps I or we can travel there too. It’s looks beautiful alright and interesting.

    1. The library small yet very pretty! You have to see it with your own eyes. The abbey itself is also worth visiting. Beautiful decoration and its two towers somehow resemble the Pope’s hat ๐Ÿ™‚
