Where to go next

I had a wonderful time in Strasbourg before heading to Zurich. I used Flixbus to get there as its pretty cheap costing £9.50 and the bus has free WiFi. It took about 3.5 hours to get there. The bus’s are sometimes late and can get stuck in traffic however they are a much cheaper option than trains. You could also head to Paris or nearby Germany.
