This is the first time I've ever heard good and Stogel mentioned together
Haha, true, although I had the feeling they had improved a bit.

Thanks for the nicely documented trip report!

They definitely did improve! But still is beyond me how they get away with these meals!

Stogel has the long life meals, these are horrible. They also have the regular plane meals. I also had one and it was ok, not worse then bornstein.

Nikon D90, but I think these are iphone pictures
didnt want to travel. wanted to chill & take peaceful walks
Next time...
it gives you 50% off on transportation and attractions. I'm surprised your relatives didn't tell you about it.

A "HalbTax" pass is a card that costs a little bit i.e. $50 for 30 days, it is designated for tourists, and with it you get 50% off (in Switzerland  of course) on all public transportation i.e. trains, buses, trams, boats, and also on most major attractions. There are many kinds of Halbtax cards. As i mentioned in my Swiss TR, I had a pass that costed $350. And had 7 unlimited days (on transportation. Attractions i got for 50% off) + all other days (up to 30 days) I got 50% off.

Here is a direct link to SBB Halbtax on English

Here is a direct link to a different website that sells it (on dutch)

P.S. there are many websites that sell it and many kinds of passes, those were the 2 first sites to come up on Google.
