Roy & Robyn's Europe Trip 2008 travel blog


Big day today - first, we could sleep in as we weren't leaving until 11am. Second, 60th birthday..... Third, we move on to another country.

I think we've had enough of Italy, the bad traffic, general grubbiness, etc. It has been really interesting and a really good experience but now it is time to move on.

Arrived in Zurich around 4.30pm to a beautifully clean city. A crisp 4C but clear and sunny. Found our hotel, right in the City Centre, a stone's throw from the Railway Station.

We headed off to find some dinner and found a nice little pub where we had some traditional Swiss Roesti - a welcome change from Italian food I might add....

Took an early evening stroll around a few of the streets and were amazed at the number of strip cabarets around. Mind you that was nothing compared with when we checked out the TV channels to find a 24hr porn channel playing (no it wasn't soft porn either).

So far our impressions of Switzerland are good (the porn channels are not counted in that OK?).

I seem to be improving with the chest cold-infection but have arranged through Juerg (our Swiss Doctor friend from Yeppoon) to see a doc tomorrow to get some more antibiotics just to be sure. So, the next few days are at our own devices so we get to decide the times....
