Samnauen is at the far east of Switzerland. If Switzerland looks like an yes, Geneva is at the left corner Samnauen is at the right corner near Austria. It is a free zone. You have duty free shops because in the past there was no road to go there from Switzerland.
Holiday is a time to forget the time. The goal is rest and doing nothing. Having a change of the daily routine. I have been to Liguria in North Italy when mountain drops directly into the sea.
During this period we even can be bored. One day has no 24 hours but a variable duration sometimes more and sometimes less. I like discovering a new region and something new. And the language is also a change when we don’t understand the local language.
The choosen region this year was Liguria in Italy. It is simple the continuation of the french mediteranean cost. Alps drops verticaly in the sea and this combination mountain and sea give such beauty.
Here are some photos.
Crossing Alps with Saint Bernard pass.

And we didn’t forget Florenze and its famous bridge
On day we walk arount Riva Trigoso and saw that the fire was burnt all not long ago
Switzerland has opened the world’s longest suspension footbridge. It is 494 meters long.
The bridge is suspended between 1,600 meters and 2,200 meters above sea level. It is only 65 centimeters wide and goes as high as 85 meters above the ground.
Hikers, within sight of the famed mountain, the Matterhorn, and the Bernese Alps, can cross it in about 10 minutes
The bridge crosses the deepest-cut valley in Switzerland. Hikers can look down onto it through grates in the bridge.
Without the bridge, the journey previously took up to four hours.
According to Swiss reports, it took only 10 weeks to build the bridge. And the structure surpasses Germany’s “Titan-RT” as the world’s longest suspension footbridge. The “Titan-RT”, which opened last month, is just over 450 meters long. It crosses Germany’s highest reservoir, the Rappbode Dam.
The Swiss bridge is also longer than the so-called “footbridge in the sky.” This bridge, built in 2014, is part of the Sochi Sky Park in Russia. It spans 439 meters and includes observation platforms looking on the mountains and the Black Sea Coast.
