    Rapperswil

    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.

    Rapperswil

    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🥴🇲🇽
