europe trip day 07: 3 countries, 1 day

We drove up to one of the highest points on the Route du vin, Wihr-au-Val-, but didn’t see anything interesting. Doubled back towards Colmar and stopped at Eguisheim, where I visited before. A larger place, almost a town, built in 3 concentric circles, with a well marked vineyard trail.

Did some souvenir shopping — teatowels, some of the distinctive houses. The ovenware were interesting, but too heavy.

Made our way east towards Freiburg. That’s in Germany. Again it was a drive through and no stop. If we had time, may have stopped at Titisee. Our destination was Schaffhausen though.

The funny thing about Schaffhausen. It’s very near Zurich, straightforward train journey. Most of us who had visitors would tell them to go there, unfailingly. Which was why I held off visiting until there were overseas visitors.

This was my 3rd time, and the Rheinfalls looked the same, the small rock still jutted out in defiance of the raging waters. Still not seeing how it’s the largest waterfall in Europe. Hmmm.

The drive back to Zurich was a different way than I thought, and then all of a sudden we were back in Germany, then back in Switzerland. What a strange road.

Cooked at home. Grilled asparagus, lamb kebab, Eton Mess.

Our last full day in Switzerland. Neither of us wanted to leave. Sigh.
