Basel and Zürich

Hello Switzerland 🇨🇭

sunny 19 °C

We were at breakfast this morning by 7 packed and ready to go. Saying a sad farewell to all our new friends we boarded our double decker bus at 9. I think they drove us through the entire industrial area of Basel before we crossed the river and made it to the picturesque countryside.

An hour and a half was all it took to get us to our hotel in Zürich and that includes a stop off at the airport to drop off a number of passengers flying today.

Let me tell you about some of them, well maybe two of them, the two that sat right in front of us. They fought the entire time. Why? We’ll we can tell you the entire story because they were both quite hard of hearing and spoke very loudly. She was trying to book their PCR rapid result test at the airport and he was trying to help her. She could book hers, but they struggles with his, and only stopped their discussion about this test to argue about the bus temperature. At the end of the journey she told him to hand over her passport and tickets so at least she could get home. They really stressed me out!

Finally we arrived at Hotel Schweizerhof

We were able to check in but we couldn’t get our rooms right away. So we wandered around exploring nearby. It’s in a very central area great pedestrians of for tram or train travel.

I’m very sad that we’re only here for one night. This room is massive and stunning. They have gorgeous accessories, bathroom amenities, ample closet space. Definitely reasonably priced for the room. We would have a quite spectacular view, except the building across the street is under major repair. I wish I’d taken some pictures of the outside of this amazing hotel.

Lunch was a massive schnitzel with fries and a beer.

Drink pairing: regional lager
Book pairing: no reading tonight I’m up at 3 am
