    I really love your travel itinerary for winter activities, my concern is what about travelling with a family from 5 members, do we still have the same enjoyment for such number, especially with our kids.

    This is my second visit to Europe, the first to Switzerland, my plans to be there the last 2 weeks from January 2019, but I am not quite sure if it will be suitable for the kids, I will be very thankful if you give some advises from your past experience about where the kids could have some fun in the winter season.

    Hi Ahmad, thanks for your comment!

    I definitely think that Switzerland is a family destination - there are many things to do in the winter. However, the country is really expensive so doing extraordinary things can be really expensive for a family of 5. But you can go hiking to Uetliberg i.e. - it's for free and you will still enjoy those views and beautiful nature. Sledding could be also fun for kids!

    Enjoy!

    Is it safe to rent a car and drive around in November end?

    hi RD
    yes, should be no problem. The roads (e.g. high in the mountains) that would potentially not be safe, would be closed. So yeah, no worries and enjoy your holiday.

    It is a very hard situation when playing the lottery and never won, or keep winning low fund not up to 100 bucks, i have been a victim of such a tough life, the biggest fund i have ever won was 100 bucks, and i have been playing lottery for almost 12 years now, things suddenly change the moment i came across a secret online, a testimony of a spell caster called DR EMU, who help people in any type of lottery numbers, i was not easily convinced, but i decided to give try, now i am a proud lottery winner with the help of DR EMU, i won $1,000.0000.00 and i am making this known to every one out there who have been trying all day to win the lottery, believe me this is the only way to win the lottery.

    My name is Tom Peacock from USA, I want to say thank you to Dr Emu for the good thing he has done for me, Though am not sure if this is the best forum to show my joy and happiness for what he has done for me but i can't hide my happiness and my joy so i have to share it with people, my marriage got crashed about two years ago and i tried all i could within my power but to no avail. I saw a post and testimonial about the good things Dr Emu has been doing so I decided to give it a try. though he is always a busy man but when he responded back to my email, he gave me 48 hours for my marriage to be restored really just like he said my marriage was restored since then I am happy and i am living happily i am so grateful to Dr Emu you can always email him here: {emutemple@gmail.com} or WhatsApp: {+2347012841542}

    I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.

    Hello everyone, my name is Elisa Keily I am so overwhelmed with joy all thanks to Dr Raypower spell. My husband left me for another woman a few years back and I was very devastated cause I never did anything wrong to him, I was left with my two kids and a job that pays little. I was almost giving up until I saw a testimony online about Dr Raypower and I decided to contact him. I explained my problem to him and he assured me I'll see a positive result after 24hurs, surprisingly my husband came back the day after the spell begging me to forgive him and promised to never leave. My husband has been back for 6 months now and we've never had any issues, am glad I didn't doubt Dr Raypower cause he sure can solve any problems with fast relief you can also contact him for help now
