    Ouzo, Schnapps, Rosé & Prosecco

    With only a couple of days left in Switzerland, the original plan was to catch the series of trains up to the Jungfraujoch, however the weather was not looking as though it was going to be a viable thing to do. So we hired a car - yep... another small one, a Smart Car, and drove to Luzern. The...

    These creations are very clever, although CHF3,260 for Daffy Duck is probably not in my price range. CHF7,400 for this big guy. I just can't imagine having him in my loungeroom.

    Hari Krishnas. Haven't seen these guys around for at least 40 years. They used to be a common sight in the streets of Sydney.

    When we came out of the Zeughaus Keller, we heard the sound of drums so went to investigate. They were great.

    We got a recommendation from a local on where was good to eat and not too expensive. This was the Zeughaus Keller. It was a great place to eat, food was really nice and cost of food and wine was pretty good, much better than we expected. We each had the same meal, 2 glasses of wine and a beer...

    It just so happened we arrived in the middle of the Züri Fäscht (Zurich Festival). Apparently attended by approx 2 million visitors, this is only on once every 3 years and we were lucky enough to be there for this one. It takes over the streets along the River Limmat and around the lake basin...

    After changing trains in Chur, we arrived in Zurich and were booked into the Crown Plaza. It's a little out of town and upon asking a cabbie what he would charge us (CHF35) we decided to tram it - 8 stops. The challenge though was trying to find out which tram and from where. We asked one of...
