Been to Zurich one time in the Spring and enjoyed the pedestrian zone and eating at an outdoor table with no traffic or fumes. Switzerland was my favorite country destination, especially Lucerne and Grindelwald. My wife Diane liked the Alpine region of Austria the best.

Zurich, Switzerland. No - not the greatest supporter of Football in the World. Not even close to a great sporting city. If all the decision makers at FIFA put their heads together - they could make a log hut !

To be fair, from our side of the Atlantic, Zurich doesn't look like such a bad location, since it's the home of FIFA, and has good rail and air connections to everywhere else.

Given its location is outside the European Union - its beyond the scrutiny of others. Deals made in Switzerland often have so many crumbs falling off the table that others can live on the proceeds. With costs of $142 million that's a lot of room for wastage - and Sepp Blatter.
