First, a fun fact: I’m only about a month away from my four-year anniversary of leaving my permanent address in Denver behind for a life of full-time travel.

In those nearly four years, I’ve taken my dog to 16 countries, learned to love myselfdropped two dress sizes, written seven travel guides, and spent two years as an official expat in Switzerland.

Switzerland captured my heart for a lot of reasons, mostly having to do with nature (the valley I lived in had 72 waterfalls…enough said, right?).

And when it comes to food, I had a few distinct favorites there, including the Trucker Rösti at the Hotel Oberland in Lauterbrunnen.

Drenched in cheese and tomato sauce and ham, this twist on the classic Swiss rösti (which is essentially hash browns) is one of the top three things I ate during my years in Switzerland. I usually had mine with a glass of Merlot and since Swiss restaurants are rather pricey, this was a special occasion treat (usually eaten after an epic hike).
