Vegetarian & Instagram-Friendly Travel Guide To Zurich

Hey guys! As promised, I’ve put together a little travel guide of Zurich with all my favorite things to do and places to eat at. We’d initially planned this trip wanting to bring in the New Year in a snowy place, but much to our luck, it didn’t snow at all.

Lucky for me, I had the most perfect designer to give me just what I wanted, in terms of grandness, volume and flamboyance. My outfit was customised for me by

1 Month To Go… #Shailoom

And yet, as the last, pivotal, 30 days loom over me, all I can see around me is a state of panic. I can’t help but think about eloping and just escaping from the madhouse my mind currently is. Would it save everyone the trouble?
