  • 18.30 Uhr Natascha (11.8 kg) & Cyrill (15,8 kg) mit viel zu schweren Rucksäcken beim Check-In 2. Beim zweiten Versuch, in der dann richtigen Kolonne, hat es schlussendlich auch mit dem Aufgeben des Gepäckes geklappt. Auf geht's zur Bye-Bye-Bar!

    Um 19.30 Uhr geht's dann richtig loooss, so viele Freunde, Familie & auch Tiere ("DANKE, Cina dasd au cho bisch") haben uns herzlichst verabschiedet.

    Hiermit möchten wir uns bei allen Anwesenden bedanken.

    "Mir hettet nie demit grechnet, dass so viel Lüet dä Weg zum Flughafe uf sich nehmed" - ihr sind genial 😘😘

    PS: wir sind gut in DUBAI angekommen... ✌🏼

  • Another amazing weekend of traveling! Ross and I loved meeting Jim and Barbara and staying at their beautiful chalet. We had a fun weekend of hiking, relaxing, and star gazing. The stars in the mountains were absolutely incredible. We saw 8 shooting stars in just 20 minutes! We couldn’t get enough of the fresh air and the beautiful views!

  • Our adventure allready ends. We had a great time full of wonderful moments, long lasting memories and great encounters we will never forget.

    Our last day in Brasil we spent at Ipanema Beach to soak up the last sunrays. But how could it have been different: On the last day we got rubbed at the beach. So far we were lucky, but the beachbag of Chrigi wasn't there anymore. Fortunately neither camera, phone or other very valuable belongings were in it.

    But now we are looking forward to celebrate Christmas and to see all our friends and families back home. And a big THANK YOU to our families for the heartily welcome at the airport!

    We wish all our readers "Merry Christmas" and thanks for following us! CHEERS 🍸🌴☀️🎄

  • We both were too tired and not hungry enough to go out last night. We didn't sleep that well, so we weren't up and out till noon. Russell went in to work (they will feed him there) and so I wandered around and found a beer hall in a 15th century building. Too late for coffee so I'm starting the day with beer.

  • Found an old warehouse that has been converted to a shopping mall. Very cool!

    FYI: the one type of shop I have seen the most of, by FAR is hair salons - either unisex or for men only. I guess Swiss men really care about their hairstyles.

  • Fountains with potable water continuously flowing. These are all over the city. Some are very old and large and elaborate and some are very simple but they are all "wasting" water and it freaks me out.

  • So this is it, everything that could be done is done and now the journey begins! Goodbye Zurich Airport, hello Auckland! 🎉

    One quick stop in Frankfurt with a last stop at mc donalds (Chicha you made me jealous with the curly french fries 😝), another stop in Singapore and 28 hours and some selfies later I finally did it!

  • So my last days back in Switzerland I spent not only packing my backpack for New Zealand but also packing boxes and boxes of my stuff to move everything to my dads! I couldnt actually believe it but I have to admit that in total for my whole apartment I had used 48 boxes!! Daaammmn!

    So THANK you so much mum for helping me!! *-*
