I spent two days in Davos last week as a guest of the Swiss Tourist Board explaining what we know about Brexit so far (answer – not a lot) to the slightly bemused Swiss audience who find it difficult to believe we seem to have no coherent plan in place for what’s going to happen. (I had to explain to them that 48% of Brits are rather bemused by it all too).

But we also got to talk about British tourists in Switzerland, past present and future.

Below you can see me (on the right) in full flow as I begged the Swiss hospitality industry to move away from their obsession with those small plastic pots of UHT milk they have with their coffee. I fear it was a losing battle. Despite being surrounded by millions of cows that could provide lots of lovely fresh milk, I don’t think they’ll be budging any time soon.

If you’re flying on Virgin Australia this month, look out for my article in its inflight magazine “Voyeur” about London, which asks if the British capital is losing its mojo after this year’s Brexit fun and games. (Spoiler alert: no, of course it’s not!)
