Ready for another great adventure!

Ready for another great adventure!

We are all checked in and patiently waiting to board our Swiss Airline non-stop flight from Los Angeles to Zürich, Switzerland.

For the next two weeks we will be following Rick Steve’s recommendation for traveling through Switzerland via train. This has long been on Tim’s wish list, so he is pretty excited to finally get to see their magnificent scenery.

Instead of returning to Zürich at the end, we will instead take a train to Basel on July 27th and spend one night there before taking a Uniworld River Cruise on the Rhine and Moselle rivers all the way to Amsterdam.

  2. Have a wonderful time! I’ve visited family in Switzerland and it’s always been an adventure. Do try the cheese fondue if you come across it.

    • Sandy, I’m not sure which portion I’m more excited about. I know we will enjoy the amazing scenery of Switzerland, but being spoiled rotten by Uniworld sounds pretty wonderful as well. Glad you two enjoyed it.


  4. Have a fabulous trip. We too love train travel and there are some really quaint smaller trains in Switzerland. Jealous about the river cruise! Enjoy!
