I often made a train trip from Zurich to the south of Switzerland, Ticino, when I lived there, just so I could gaze out the window.

The train line passed through some of the most spectacular scenery I've ever seen. Like looking at a series of postcards for a few hours.

Luscious greens, misty mountains (snow capped in Winter), waterfalls, fields painted yellow with flowers in Spring, sheepys...

This is a mix of some of the songs that kept me company on those trips. I thought I would dedicate a mix to Switzerland seeing as it played a pivitol role in my life.

Criteria: must compliment scenery

I've wanted to go to Switzerland ever since I saw Goldfinger in 6th grade. I'm jealous.
