Part Three Where should you go?
Recommendation Recalling the information we shared in the past about how you enjoy spending time in and around the water and that your favorite food is chocolate, I would recommend that you visit Switzerland. Because Switzerland has an ideal climate, no extreme heat or cold and no humidity any time of the year would work for your visit. In that you love to be in and around water, you will love this place. No matter where you are, you are never more than ten miles from a lake. They are proud of their chocolate! The average Swiss eats 23 pounds of chocolate per year compared to the 11.7 pounds consumed by Americans. They are also known for their cheese so great food should not be a problem to find. Also, considering that you will be traveling alone, I feel that Switzerland would be a great choice because it is a very safe place to visit. Switzerland has one of the lowest crime rates in the world. As far as the language barrier, there are four official languages (German, French, Italian and Romanch). English is an unofficial fifth language. Please let me know if you would like for me to do more research on particular parts of Switzerland.
