The best places to see the stars in Britain
Switzerland has always been expensive, but in the last year or so, it has been tear-inducingly so. This is mainly because the Swiss franc was soaring higher than a Virgin Galactic shuttle. Late last year, the Swiss government decided effectively to peg the franc to the euro. Currency speculators stopped using it as a safe haven straight away, bringing an instant devaluation, whilst as the euro drops in value, so does the Franc.
Why in 2012? Skiers wanting to hit the slopes with a minimum of airport fuss and transfer time can take advantage of Snowjet's decision to ramp up the number of services from Stansted to the tiny mountain airport at Sion.

I'll bide my time here until the Euro zone settles down. At the minute the Euro/pound exchange rate is Rubbish!

I totally agree with you ....but ...sorry I need a holiday !
There is a limit as to how much we need to be made to feel individually responsible for the current situation.
As for putting money into something with growth..... that doesn't happen at the moment. Interest rates are abysmal, house prices not rising etc .
So, sorry, but this weekend we're booking our holidays for the next few months.
