Travel journal 1

As promised, I've found the time to write just a few lines about our trip to Switzerland. Our plane yesterday morning left a bit too late, because three passengers who had checked in did not board the plane, and so their luggage had to be taken out of the containers. The flight itself went smoothly and we arrived in Zurich airport around 11.30 am. Because our luggage arrived very fast, we made it in time for our train of 12.12 pm to Zurich Hauptbahnhof and from there to Landquart and Scuol.

The hotel where we are staying is called Bellaval (which means 'beautiful valley' in the local language: rheto-roman). We got the room we normally occupy, as it is already the third time we stay here. We still had time for a walk into the village, and then it was time for supper. They have a very good cook here in the hotel, and all the meals are a delight.

This morning we woke up to a blue sky. After a hearty breakfast we went outside for a long walk. It was rather cold, but the sun did a lot of good! We've been walking nicely and afterwards enjoyed some time in the hotel wellness center. I especially like the infrared cabin and the steam bath.

Now we're waiting for the welcome drink, which always takes place on Sundays. Have to endure the looks of people who apparently haven't seen a laptop!!!
