Jun 16, 2018 - Zurich Pride

Today was a day of visual splendour with competing forces from art and pride. Rainbow flags, brightly dressed trannies and political banners filled the many streets of Zurich in the at the annual pride march in the afternoon and I was constantly debating whether to wind up my morning visit to the Kunstmuseum, my first gallery visit to make it there on time. Despite having already visited at least twenty art museums across Europe, and with art fatigue being a risk, I was quite refreshed at the exhibition Fashion Drive: Extreme Fashion in...

Helen in Europe

Jun 12, 2018 - Brussels to Zurich

Day 25. Brussels-Zurich-in air to Hong Kong 12/6/18. Tuesday. Overcast, cool 11-19 degrees I’m getting really good reading and typing without my glasses! We checked out and left our luggage at the hotel and walked to St. Catherine’s, another big, old church, quite plain interior but beautiful in it’s simplicity. A mass was being said and it was nice to just sit and listen to the rhythm. Lunch for the last time sitting outside and watching the world go - very relaxing and nice to reminisce the last 3+ weeks in Europe. We nearly didn’t get...

Oct 19, 2017 - Zurich (In Transit)

@@@@@@@ KAPOORS ON THE ROAD This flight was the first we had ever taken on Swiss Air. Anil and I love to make lists relating to our travels, and now we were able to add Swiss Air to our list of airlines we’ve flown. It was a short hop from Gatwick To Zurich, and we were very comfortable of course, but it was the attention I was given once we landed that left a memorable impression. I had requested a wheelchair because of my twisted ankle and cane, and the man who met us at the airport was so kind and attentive. He whisked us through the...

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.

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.
