Our last stop before we leave Switzerland.
We were not sure how much we would see of Zurich, a) because it can be quite foggy this time of year and b) because we did not quite know what time we would be getting here and how much energy we all had to walk around. Well, the sun was shining, skies clear and our legs and stroller held up. We loved wandering around the streets, what a lovely city, unfortunately difficult to photograph well with the windy streets often in shade and shadows. The lake was glorious and there were so many people out and about. Ethan enjoyed feeding the ducks and going on a merry go round. We also went up a very small train carriage up the hill - Polybahn. It takes Uni students from the old city up the very steep hill to their campus - we did not know this till after we had done it! Fun though. We sat by the lake, had a nice lunch and Ethan wrote a postcard to kinder and we window shopped, even seeing a Mona Lisa painting which Ethan loved as he recognised it from his Paris books.
For dinner we went to our friend Ursi's house who lives in Vetikon - Zurich, a gorgeous suburb on a hill overlooking Lake Zurich - the views were amazing!! We had a lovely dinner with her and her grown up boys - Thomas, Reto and Dominique, all of whom Bec has not seen in 15 years since they were toddlers.
Our hotel in the old town of Zurich is great, perfectly located and a short walk to the Main Station where our train leaves for Paris at 9.34am........we are all really excited about this, as Ethan says "my third holiday". Meaning destination number 3 - we suspect Disneyland has something to do with that!!!
