About the site
The purpose of this site is to share my experiences of traveling in Switzerland with the goal of helping others plan a their own trip. Use the tool bar at the top to explore sections on hiking, cities and sightseeing, general travel advice, and personal opinions and stories. For each destination I provide my personal experience of traveling there in a few short paragraphs along with some pictures. I've included trail maps for a few of the places, and hopefully when I have more time I can make the material a bit more digestible for each location. I'm no expert, so while I hope the information provided is up to date and accurate this may not always be the case. You may also notice quite a few blank sections. The site is a continuing work in progress, and so if you have questions on something missing or any recommendations feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Who am I?
My name is Zack, and I'm an American from the Boston area. I'm a recent college graduate, and I'm now working in a lab at Harvard Medical. So why do I know so much about Switzerland? During college, I had the opportunity to spend two summers doing research at the University of Zurich. I first went in 2018 with the BUSS Program through which I conducted HIV research. This was my first time traveling outside of the U.S, and I loved the experience. With a small digital pocket camera I hiked and toured throughout as much of Switzerland as I could, but just one summer wasn't enough. In the summer of 2019 I returned to the University of Zurich with the ThinkSwiss Scholarship to do immunology research and continue my exploration. Now I'm back in the U.S, but I love to share my experience and help others learn about what Switzerland as to offer. This website is a passion project to do that, and I hope you find it helpful. Feel free to contact me with any questions, and I'll do my best to answer. Lastly, if you know of any companies in Switzerland looking for tour guides or anyone that needs an employee with a Bachelor's degree in Microbiology and Political Science let me know!
