After exploring various corners of the earth with your partner in crime turned fiancé, you have decided on a destination wedding. First off, congratulations! Secondly, let`s get to work.

Winter in Toronto has been easy so far. But the real test will be the month of February. In preparation, conversations between my colleague Jaana and me about faraway places have escalated. Striking sunsets at Għajn Tuffieħa Bay, bluer than blue waters in Kemmuna, and tasty Aljotta (or Imqaret for me because of my sweet tooth) are just a few items on our wish list.

I had opted for public seating due to budget constraints and warnings that Switzerland was expensive. With lengthy stops in quiet towns, travellers stepped on and off trains at all hours of the night and morning. Some appeared suspect. In the brief moment I did nod off, I awoke to a bedraggled man eyeballing me from across the coach. I stayed awake as the train pulled in to Zurich. The fresh air was welcome, and I couldn’t wait for a hot shower, clean sheets, and food. But just as soon as I ran my fingers along the map that would take me to the hostel, I was interrupted by a booming voice speaking French. The voice belonged to a…
