Thoughts About Travel

Cheers! A New Year Begins

As we begin a new year, we’ll also begin a new theme. Each month will feature a “Did You Know” photo and commentary that highlights something learned while traveling.

Let’s start the year with a toast.

Lest you think 8-year-old Logan is toasting champagne, he is not.

Instead his glass holds Switzerland’s national beverage, Rivella. A carbonated drink the color of ginger ale, Rivella is made from whey, a protein-containing by-product of cheese making.

Grammy approves.

Rivella is another example of the Swiss penchant for careful use of resources.

Rarely exported, you must travel to Switzerland to taste Rivella. Or befriend a Swiss who can ship it to you.

Worth a trip? Of course. Any reason is a great excuse to visit Switzerland.
