Trotti'ing Down Mt. Titlis... Now THAT is a Fun Workout!


Forget the gym or traditional workouts when on vacation. Instead, get outside, experience the local culture, explore, hike, count your steps by wearing a pedometer, or hop on a Trotti bike and soar down the mountain like I did when adventuring through Switzerland! Now THAT’S a calorie-burning, muscle-toning workout that’s super fun too!



Kneipp Beauty Gush... Fight Wrinkles, Aging, and Acne

One of my favorite things to do when I travel is explore the local culture, traditions, and healing techniques. In Switzerland, the Kneipp Cold Springs treatment is a popular local destination for preventative healing and promoting natural beauty. The idea is that you spray the water on your face in a specific manner in order to fight wrinkles, minimize the signs of aging, maintain skin’s radiance, ease acne and eczema. It was exhilarating!… But you can also do the technique at home using a hose ;)



Loto Risotto from Farm to Plate (plus a recipe to make it!)

Sure there’s cheese and hiking, but Switzerland is also known for amazing wine and… risotto! Ticino, Switzerland, the Southern-most Swiss town that’s a stones throw from Italy, grows the delicious short grain rice called Loto risotto. Watch QuickieChick Laurel House in the rice field interviewing grower Margarit about her favorite simple risotto recipe.
