We had an easy flight from Seattle to Atlanta to Zurich and arrived in the morning in the lovely city of Zurich. Did a quick passport control in Zurich, we did carry on bags only (oh yeah, light packing) so we headed into the city and found our hotel pretty easily.
We dropped off bags, headed out to grab lunch and then spent the afternoon doing the Rick Steves walking tour of Zurich.

Zurich isn't a huge city so it was a nice first stop for a laid back day while were still adjusting from the 15+ hour journey We did see some nice sights though and got Luxemburgerli macarons at Sprungli confectionery shop. I love macarons and I really want to learn how to make them - I could eat a whole basket!
|I'll have one of every flavor, please|
Since we were on a 9-hour time difference we got pretty tired early, did a casual dinner and of course ended the night with some Swiss Chocolate!
A great first day start to the trip! Next stop: Lucerne, Switzerland!
