Switzerland: Sharing the Natural Beauty

After that I experienced a series of more or less random, unrelated associations. There was Swiss cheese, which I first experienced in cartoons as a comical image o...

Traveling in Italy… by Film

In college, as soon as I saw Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday, I knew I had to go to Italy.
