Where To Travel - Funniest Search of the Week

I love looking at some of the ways people find my site. This weeks funniest post was "why do so many people go to Evian Les Bains".

I'm not sure why they do actually, but maybe they are looking for a great spa. Other than the fact that it's easy to get to Evian from Lausanne, I'm not sure why people would want to visit Evian's highly over priced thermal bath.

I think it costs 50 CHF or more. The boat ride takes about 35 minutes and well there is one casino. I've been to Evian Les Bains 4 times and besides finding great cheap french cuisine, I was not too thrilled at all. We stayed for about an hour or two but we were ready to leave.

However, if you feel like going to France for the day, why not go to Yviore which is just 20 kms down the way. The town of Yviore is incredibly beautiful. The shop owners are so welcoming and the food is incredible. I believe the bigfinn also went there and enjoyed himself too.

Now that winter is just around the corner, I'd rather be visiting some of the more unique thermal baths throughout Switzerland. And boy are there a lot of those great baths all around Switzerland. Some of my favorites include Zurzach near Baden, Ovrannaz nearest to Sion and Montreux, Morschach near Brunnen and Bad Ragaz near Litchenstein. If you'd like to know more about any of these great destinations, feel free to let me know. I think I'll do a write up on
