Oct 8, 2017 - Berlin to Zurich

It rained all night & I felt like sleeping in until my check out time. However, I did get up and the rain stopped over breakfast. Walked to the Reichstag building without getting wet (about 25 minutes) and went on my free tour of the Bundestag. It was quite interesting but there was a group of Israeli tourists who were being really obnoxious, and I think the guide was fed up with them. She was making comments such as "Well, your country's not very big". The Bundestag was not in session so close after the German elections and they were...

Beijing to Berlin

Aug 24, 2017 - Fly the friendly skys

From our hotel in Sacramento we catch the 4am shuttle. Our flight leaves at 6:50am. About 5 hours in the air we touch down in Dulles DC. A 3 hour lay over and then 8 more hours to Zurich. A short stop at the TI to buy a city card. Then shuttle to our hotel. It's only 9am so we drop our luggage and take a walk for about an hour and our room is ready. A warm shower helps revive us. We plan to take the train to town soon. If we can stay up till early afternoon, we should minimize the jet lag.

A great night sleep up a bit late but oh well I am on vacation HAHA, down for a nice breakfast before heading out to due the city walk, a very nice day sunshine and warm, a stop at atm for some Swiss money. A nice walk down to the lake stopping to ride a ferris wheel getting a good view of the lake area, then on to the other side of river, stopping at the Grossmunster church with its two towers, and up the 187 narrow steps to the top, a great view of the city, as I was walking along the street I was attacked by this large gelato cone so had...

Apr 21, 2017 - In Zurich

Morning everyone it is 8:00 clock here and midnight for all of the people in CO. My adventure has started, it took a bit longer to get here then planned but I made LOL, It start off great with a on time flight from Durango to Denver, then a 2 1/2 hour delay from Denver to Toronto due to weather in Toronto, and a extra hour circling the airport there before we could land, causing me to miss my flight to Zurich, so had to get a flight to London, then on to Zurich from there, so was about 8 hours later of getting to Zurich but here I am great....

Aug 17, 2016 - Zurich!

Aug. 16,2016 After the miracle of modern travel that is Lufthansa air travel via Frankfurt we land in Zurich in the heat....it's 30 degrees here! In Zurich! That was a surprise for us, and I don't think the locals are too used to this here as well. The entire population appears to be on holiday- either picnicking along the shore,boating or swimming in lovely Zurich Lake or sitting at cafes drinking Campari! We've meandered around the old town with it's winding cobblestone Gasses and Strasses and walked the long lakeshore promenade with the...

Jun 19, 2016 - Lucerne to Zurich to Home

Day 9 – Lucerne (Luzern) to Zurich to home – June 19, 2016 Today had to also be an early day – for those of us that had early flights home!! We had 6:15AM bags out, 6:30AM breakfast (quickly) and 6:50AM departure for the airport. It was Sunday morning so there was not much traffic. We arrived at the airport, off loaded from the bus, found where to check- in, checked in, dropped off our bags and proceeded through security and immigration – and on to the gate. We were plenty early – but better early than late. We boarded the airplane when...

Jun 18, 2016 - St Gallen

18/6- We are on 2nd night at St Gallen after arriving her by train. Today we trained it to Zurich it has a lovely wide fast flowing very deep clean river through it with lots of long trams and cable cars. We took a cruise on Lake Zurich and generally just poked around the old town. Still loving the 1st class carriagesnand ability to use the 1st class lounges at the larger stations, most have a range of free hot and cold drinks.

Jun 11, 2016 - Zurich, Switzerland

Day 1 – Zurich – June 11, 2016 We arrived through the clouds shortly after 7AM. We went through immigration and all they really wanted to know was how many days we expected to be in Switzerland. Our bags came out right away and we were through customs very fast – either green or red. Really not sure why they can’t do it this fast in the USA. It was rainy/drizzly but our 5 minute walk from the airport to the hotel (Radisson Blu) was all inside - through a very large shopping mall – where there was also the train station. We checked in and...

Oct 2, 2015 - Train from Zurich HB

A little cramped on the train but such beautiful scenery that the time flew by, we love watching and commenting on the other travellers as they get on and off the train, we were soon in Milano and boarding the next train with no problems at all. Travelling by train in Europe is quite brilliant one wonders why and how we get it SO wrong in the UK!!!!!!
