    September 24, 2021 in Switzerland ⋅ 🌙 16 °C

    Malo pred 20:00 uro, prispema v Lachen. Odločiva se, da si ob jezeru privoščima še belo kavo in nekaj osvežilnega.
    Sončni zahod poskrbi za prelepe barve neba in odsev v jezeru. Uau. Posnamem par utrinkov.
    Kratek sprehod ob marini, ter obljubljena kava 🥰.

    Insel Ufenau

    September 22, 2021 in Switzerland ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

    Ob točno 12:30 uri, izplujemo iz pristanišča v Rapperswillu.Prva postojanka je otok Insel Ufenau. Majhen žepni otoček, kjer se izkrca kar nekaj turistov. Aja mimogrede, na brodu je večina penzionistev, tako da bova osivela ko prispema v Zürich 😊.
    Na otočku je Dejan izbrskal, da se nahaja majha cerkev Sv. Petra in Pavla in kapela Sv.Martina. zelo lepo.
    Ob 12:45 izlujemo dalne. Na najini mizi že Coca cola 😊

    September 22, 2021 in Switzerland ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

    Prispema v Rapperswill. Še vedno ga občudujem in vedno ga bom. 🥰 Pač, ker je najin ❤.
    Ker imava časa eno uro in pol, si najprej privoščima kavo v Starbucksu in cimetovo rolico.
    Mesto živi, saj pravkar poteka sejem, kjer rastavljalci nudijo vsega na pretek. Lepo je.
    Mirno jesensko dopoldne, res je krasno. Drevesa že spreminjajo barvo listja. Rahlo je hladno a prijetno.

    Do ladije, na katero se vrcava za Zürich naju loči še slabe pol ure. Usedeva se v parku ob majhnem pristanišču, kjer počakava na brodič 😊.

    October 25, 2019 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Na poti do Rapperswila, me Dejan odloži iz avta v prikupni objezerski vasicu Hurden. Nadaljujem peš po lesenem mostu, ki vodi čez jezero vse do Rapperswila. Malekost je oblačno, a temperatura super za jutranje pohajkovanje 😀.
    Sprehodim se po mestnem jedru, vse do gradu. Pred stopniščem, ki vodi do gradu, je sobotna tržnica, kjer je vsega na pretek. Ribe, sveži pekovski izdelki,rože, kava, itd,...
    Na sami razgledni točki, je čudovit pogled na Züriško jezero. 🦢Labodi, 🦆race in druge ptice, se bodijo ob in po vodi. Jesen z svojimi barvami poskrbi, da je narava še lepša, 🍁🍂🍃
    Čas za kavo. Starbucks®..... Blonde cafe late in marmorni kolač, za žejo pa Evian😀. Mesto se počasi prebuja. Trgovci pripravljajo ulične butike da zaživijo v nov dan. Mesto je v znemenju jeseni. Barve, barve, barve.....
    Dejan pride za menoj in popijeva kavo.
    Skočiva v trgovino še po nekaj stvari in se odpraviva nazaj v Siebnen. Nekaj si pripraviva za kosilo, ter odideva spat. Popoldan pa čas za pakiranje in priprave za jutri. Ne dojemava kam odhajava🥴🇲🇽

    September 6, 2018 in Switzerland ⋅ 🌧 18 °C

    I started the day early as I was awake at 4:30am. It meant I was up and going by 9am as I had to go back tpthe mobile phone shop. My SIM card hadn’t kicked in. No idea what the guy did but he got it going.
    I then walked down Bahnhofstrasse. It’s the shopping street of Zurich. By the time I got to the end the shops were all very high end - Burberry, Hermes, Cartier, Bvlgari.
    I was heading down to Lake Zurich and if I didn’t use Bahnhofstrasse I would have been walking parallel to it.
    I had planned to do a round trip on the Lake but overhearing a tour guide talking to her group I decided to get off at Rapperswil. The boat trip was very scenic. Rather than a tour with a commentary it was more like a commuter trip. My ticket was just an all day/all zones public transport ticket.
    Rapperswil is at the other end of the Lake/the beginning of the upper Lake.
    There were a lot of Italian restaurants there but I did manage to find a Swiss one.
    After lunch I walked up to the castle. It is now actually a Polish museum celebrating both Poles in Switzerland and Swiss in Poland. I don’t actually know that much about the history of Poland but am interested in finding out more after today.
    The castle itself is gorgeous. I was able to go all the way up into the tower.
    By the time I made it into Rapperswil I was rather tired. I came back to Zurich via train.
    The receptionist was able to recommend and reserve a table at a fondue restaurant. It was a short walk away and very delicious. Even though my portion was smaller than that for a couple it couldn’t have been only half the amount. I watched several couples scrape the bottom of the fondue pot. I had the traditional version with wine and kirsch.
    I did discover I was doing it wrong though. I would use the long fork to dip the bread in the fondu and then transfer it to my dinner fork. Everyone else was eating from the long fork which didn’t seem very hygienic to me.
    After I finished I walked down to the river for a gentle stroll back to the hotel. It’s a beautiful night, very summer like.

    I bet you went to bed early, since waking up so early and all that walking. 😀Photos are lovely, Rapperville looks very pretty and a fair distance away from hotel. Do the people speak English and did you like the fondue.

    I was asleep by 10pm but awake at 5:30am. I’ve only found one person in Zurich who didn’t speak English, he was the tech guy at the phone store but I didn’t need to deal with him. All the restaurants seem to have both English and German menus. In Rapperswil the English wasn’t quite as prevalent. The place I had my lunch had an English translation on the menu but not on the lunch specials board. The waitress translated it for me but she did struggle a little bit. The receptionist at the hotel yesterday apologised to a couple checking in saying “ my Spanish isn’t very good. French or English?” He obviously understood some of what they were saying. I have iTranslate on my phone and that helps most of the tine if I can’t work it out from the context. The fondue was very very good. Definitely worth it and (for Zurich) not too expensive.

    Grüezi mitenand!

    September 15, 2018 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Nun fahren wir schon wieder raus aus Zürich. Bzw. aus Rüti. Denn dort haben uns Hyka und Rafal vor 2 Tagen aufgenommen. Mit Rafal bin ich seit dem Jurastudium befreundet. Er lebt mittlerweile mit seiner Frau hier. Sie haben uns unglaublich gastfreundlich empfangen. So gastfreundlich das ich am Abend nicht mehr in der Lage war den Blogeintrag zu schreiben... vielleicht sollte ich erwähnen das Rafal polnischer Abstammung ist. :D Mit leichtem Kater ging es dann also am nächsten Tag nach Zürich. Eine quirlige, hübsche Stadt in der man das Geld fast riechen kann. Sowieso haben wir durch unsere Locals sehr viel Interessantes über die Schweiz erfahren und es läuft hier ganz anders als in Deutschland. Natur und Infrastruktur ist super. Ein Kind bekommt man Dank der Sozialleistungen dann aber doch lieber in Deutschland. Sehr viel Wissenswertes. Nun geht es aber wieder Richtung Heimat. Vielen lieben Dank Hyka und Rafal!!Read more

    Area 47 Austria

    July 2, 2018 in Switzerland ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    today was an awesome day. before i get into that ill say a few things while they are on my mind. "Ausfahrt" in germany, austria and Switzerland mean exit. (for a while there in germany we thot Ausfahrt was everywere 😂 like a town or something). another thing, you cant get a full cup of coffee over here, everywhere is 1/4 cup coffee and full cup phone. the traffic lights are directly beside you or directly above you, which is dumb, cuz you cant see them!
    ok back heaven, i mean... to area 47 adventure park. our options today, canyoning, white water rafting, caving, e dirtbikes, wakeboarding. we chose e dirtbikes and wakeboarding. both were awesome. we also gt entrance into the waterpark area. which was pretty amazing in itself. blob into a big pool, rock climbing and junping off into the water, tight rope, slides, and slip in slide ramp that launches you into the water and a slide you take a sled thing down and shoot across the water, trampolines, plateform jumps up to 10 meters high. the most fun ive ever had at a park by far! we were very sore and tired by the end of the day. had a couple well deserved local beers at the restaurant over the water park area and dinner.
