I was really excited to head over to Switzerland and explore my third new country of 2013.
Unfortunately the weather in Basel was not kind to us. It rained A LOT and it was the kind of rain that bounces off the pavement and hurts when it hits you. Luckily we had a great hotel, so spending some time there was hardly a chore.
When it did stop raining, we headed straight out into the old town (we were staying just five minutes away) for a mooch. Our time was limited, the sky looked like it would begin piddling down again any second, so we didn’t worry about a map, we just walked around, taking in the amazing old buildings.
Old Town Basel is beautiful, absolutely beautiful. It is a maze of streets and getting lost in them (which we did of course) is a pleasure.
