Hey everyone. I'm currently planning on taking a trip to Switzerland by myself. I've never gone on a trip by myself, let alone to another continent, but I'm really looking forward to it.
A lot is still variable at this time-
The length: 1-2 weeks
The timing: Somewhere between late Feb and probably June or July
The sleeping situation: I may be able to crash with a friend for some amount of nights, this will probably affect the length of the vacation
So what I'm wondering is, what are some great and can't-miss things to do in Switzerland? What's overrated? What's a cool path to follow? I'm trying to figure one out, but there are things I want to see all over the place.
And more generally, any advice on traveling alone. What things to avoid to keep myself safe? How to get through Switzerland alone without speaking hardly any German, French, or Italian? How to meet people/fellow travelers/etc. How to plan successfully. Basically any tips or experiences you guys might have.
edit: in terms of things I want to do, I'm up for anything. Various things I want to do: Take tour of CERN; visit the Einstein Haus; go to the Museé Olympique; go to the Zentum Paul Klee, Barenpark, see the Zytglogge and Kindliferesserbrunnen; see the Matterhorn; take the Glacier Express from Zermatt to St. Moritz or vice versa; take in a Swiss league soccer game; see the Lion monument in Lucerne; check out Mt. Pilatus or Mt Titlis; take a hike or two, maybe in the Swiss National Park; go to clubs like K-36 in Geneva etc
