OLD TOWN, BASEL, SWITZERLAND

Building Old Town Basel

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.
