    Switzerland! Schweiz!

    May 13, 2017 in Switzerland ⋅ 🌧 15 °C

    After waking up from a dream about Peter buying a spider (prompted no doubt by the huge spider that appeared on my arm yesterday whilst cycling) we made our way to Lake Constance and into Switzerland! Seeing the snow-covered alps was pretty epic as we past our western-most point of the route. Lake Constance itself is really nice, well-served by a cycle route and interesting throughout the 50km that we followed it today.

    Old-fashioned farms met very modern residential areas, chic waterside cafés, little harbours and swimming access "pools" off the lake. We could hear frogs along a small pond part at one point as well as the sheep each wearing their own little bells.

    As expected, Switz is pretty pricey! (Hence why we're currently in a tent having cooked ourselves!) A campsite can of beer was 5 CHF (about £4.50) and a bag of salad in the supermarket was (4.50 CHF)! Peter was so excited about the salad he couldn't wait until we camped to eat it!

    Ja, was gibt es hinzuzufügen? Neben uns liegen zwei schnarchenden Holländer im Zelt, ebenfalls Radreisende. In der Schweiz hat man das Gefühl, dass die Mehrheit recht gut begütert ist. Vielleicht täuscht es aber auch und es gibt auch Armut. Am Bodensee jedenfalls nicht. Viele Häuser mit Wasserzugang sind wohl nur Wochenendhäuser. Wem sie wohl gehören? Fussballspielern? Auf jeden Fall ist das Panorama große Klasse.
