Couple of weekends ago I had a chance to visit Zurich and Liechtenstein, the tiny little country in the heart of Europe that is even more obscure that Luxembourg. This micro-state has a population of one Elephant & Castle council estate and is the size of three football pitches. But for me the important number was 39, as Liechtenstein was number 39 in my 100 country challenge.
Just as in Switzerland, its natural resources are preserved to the maximum, punctuality is national obsession and prices make you feel like a penniless student again. Where else you’d have crystal clear mountain stream running through the city centre where trout are idly swimming. Where else delay of train departure for 2 minutes is considered national disgrace. Where else would you pay £20 pounds for a noodle soup, in ‘affordable’ rated restaurant.
