    Gotta love a castle (Tarasp)

    September 3, 2019 in Switzerland ⋅ ☀️ 9 °C

    We are now in Switzerland, after a train and two buses. The scenery along the route was spectacular. When our bus reached the Bahnhof in Scuol, we hopped off, threw our suitcases into a locker (they have them at all the stations) and headed out. Also at the Scuol station, we picked up this amazing super high-speed wi-fi gizmo; I booked it on line. At the end of our trip, we throw it into a post box and walk away! We can connect all our devices (2 phones and 2 ipads).

    Enough technical stuff! The main reason to take a break in Scuol was to travel to the tiny hamlet of Tarasp where we climbed to the Tarasp Castle. Originally built in the 11th century, the castle has a prominent view over the valley. At every corner of the switchback walking trail up from the bus stop to the castle, a different and more stunning view point presented itself. Simply wonderful!

    It is not quite 3pm here in Tarasp as I write this - looking up at the castle we just visited. A 10-minute bus ride takes us back to Scuol. When we arrive at 3:25pm, there will be about 10 buses coming from all directions at the same time. At 3:30pm, they will all take off to assorted destinations. We will be on the bus to Susch which will then connect to a train to Samedan. The degree of precision and coordination of the Swiss travel system is incredible.
