Switzerland was recently named the world’s happiest country in a survey of 158 nations (we’re a rather miserable 21st!)
Having recently travelled again to the country, I can see why it’s just so darned beautiful, everything works and the weather, food and drink are all pretty marvellous.
The Swiss are wealthy, healthy and live among, arguably, the most beautiful scenery in the world.
I travelled to the Fribourg region, 90 minutes from Geneva or Zurich. Often bypassed by visitors keen to hit the Alps, this area abounds with lush Alpine valleys, medieval villages and towns, and rich pasture, where black-and-white cows, with bells around their necks, fill the mountain air with that familiar jingle-jangle that tells you you’re in Switzerland.
