I am planning a trip for sometime July where my wife and I want to go to Switzerland for about 12-13 days.
Being newly married, I think it will be a good fun trip. We both love nature, rivers, mountains anything not-manmade. We both also love to take the back road rather than the highways.
I was thinking, instead of 12 day switz trip, I wanted to do the below. Can you please help me with some ideas and comment so I can refine the trip.
1. Fly into paris
2. Two days in paris - visit Normandy beach as well.
3. Rental car and drive to zurich avoiding highway (10 hour trip) - Stop at a bed & breakfast in some village.
4. Go around zurich, lucene and some other places.
I really don't know much about switzerland but we both prefer going to places where few may go. Like small villages or deep into forests.
Thank you and looking forward to your comments.
