5 Weird Switzerland Mysteries
If you are an enthusiastic traveler who is fascinated by the history of the world and seeing new places, you might have considered visiting places that have weird mysteries. One of these places that you might have to visit in near future is Switzerland, which is packed with many sightseeing opportunities and great landscapes for exploration. The country also has a rich fascinating history that has been kept intact from hundreds of years past, so you will also have a fine learning opportunity. But most important in your trip is learning more about these five weird mysteries.
1. Le Loyon
One of the biggest mysteries that have crowned the people of western Switzerland is the sight of a man who used to dress in military attire with a gas mask. For more than 10 years, this man immersed himself into the woods and after his long exploration into the woods and successfully planting fear among residents, he finally left, but not without leaving a note. The note offered information that hinted that he chose to leave because the risk of looking for ‚Äòthe beast‚Äô was too high, which leaves many to question what beast this man was hunting all that while.
2. No water bottles in public
One of the things you will observe upon visiting Switzerland is that no one carries water bottles in public, and you will ask how they stay hydrated. You will even struggle to find any stocked that you can buy on the go, so it is a mystery how these people maintain themselves hydrated the whole day.
3. Cladding to the gym a taboo?
Apparently, in Switzerland gym clothes are a taboo. Imagine a case of an emergency and assistants will come in quickly carrying towels so you guys can cover yourselves. In fact, going to the gym with gym clothes will attract many people who think you look strange that way. It is unlike other parts of the world where the first thing before you go to the gym is to choose what to wear. How they arrived at this behavior is still a mystery I am yet to come to terms with.
4. No carry on bags in planes
Even after it is checked, you will still have to leave it with other luggage. The attendants will not allow you to take your bag into the place even if it is thoroughly searched. Then you are surprised what might be the logic behind this if the search process reveals you are safe to move with the small bag. It is a policy whose meaning you cannot fathom if you are a visitor yet to familiarize with the country.
5. The tram cram?
If this is not a habit developed gradually, then it would be hard to explain. Everyone acts in a manner to suggest ‚Äòsurvival of the fittest‚Äô while getting off buses, trains, and trams, which leaves you to wonder why this is an order adopted everywhere across the country and why they cannot just follow a simple procedure that allows everyone to have an easy exit.
