Thank goodness we went to Bern as it was just overwhelmingly beautiful.
From the grandest-looking police station I’ve ever seen, to a street where Einstein lived, to beautiful parks and happy-looking bears, Bern seems to have it all. It’s been mentioned more than a few times that Switzerland had the highest standards of living anywhere in the world and from what I’ve seen it’s definitely living up to that reputation. While I’ve witnessed it now on many occasions I’m still amazed and extremely envious at how clear the fountains and rivers are, I just can’t help but marvel at what’s possible when cities and governments put their efforts into it – another example of how life can be more ideal if we all work together. And if Bern wasn’t already impressive on ground level it was even more so from the vantage point of the Rosengarten, a beautiful flower-filled landscaped park hovering over the river valley and skyline of patterned roofs and the towering cathedral tower. One can only imagine how much nicer it would all be on a clear sunny day though you don’t have to be Einstein to figure that out. He wasn’t a genius for nothing after all.
