Zurich Switzerland was the first stop of our European tour.  After getting to the airport, we took the train downtown.  It was a simple walk to the hotel.  We had the opportunity to walk around and check out the city. There are lots of streets to walk around and the city wraps around Lake Zurich.  It was a nice day and we sat by the lake for awhile and watched the swans and paddle boats.   It was a good starting point to a three week long vacation around Europe.
