  1. The mistaken identity

One Swiss man was traveling in Germany when he was mistaken for a famous actor.

The disappointed fans were still thrilled to have met someone who looked so much like their idol.

  1. The ski jumper

Ski jumping is a popular sport in Switzerland, and there are many ski jumps around the country. One day, a man decided to try his hand at ski jumping, despite having no experience.

Despite his bruises and embarrassment, the man still laughs about the time he tried to be a ski jumper.

Switzerland’s wonderful parks are home to many squirrels. One day, a group of tourists was enjoying a picnic in a park when a sneaky squirrel stole their baguette.
