Contrary to popular belief, I actually like being in peaceful and quiet places and left to my own devices more so often than I portray myself to the outside world. I love the smell of trees, the sound of the river and wild animals and just everything about nature. Which is contradictive to my other passion in life regarding technology and gaming. And so upon arriving to the far Eastern countryside part of Switzerland it was only a matter of moments before I realized that Switzerland most notably, Buchs St. Gallen has become one of my favorite places in Europe (so far) to retreat to should you feel the need to recharge your batteries and just be in touch with yourself again.
Buchs St. Gallen lies on the border of Liechtenstein and is recognized by various scatters of villages around its numerous hills and mountains. It is 20 minutes away by car from Austria and so far to what I have seen it is heavily forested with trees and poultry farms (agricultural) and is home to bodies of rivers and lakes. Although the average temperature when I arrived is between 2-6 degrees you would think that its really cold but in order to find out whether this forecast actually reflects the feeling you would have to take into account the wind velocity of the area. It is not very windy here and its just very still. The town folks are very quiet too and if you want to get to even the most local shops you definitely would have to have a car or a bicycle. Below are some pictures I have taken outside where I am staying.
