On the lake
A few years back O and I discovered that we both really like going on boat rides... so when in Switzerland we try and go on at least one.
This year my parents, my youngest sister, Orhan and I chose to go from:
(again I should say we have done it quite a few times)
After standing in the queue
on pier no 3
we boarded and the siren signaled the beginning of our trip
The ship stopped on several different places
until arriving at Au - a lovely peninsula
We went on land
for a little walk and some iced coffees right on top of the hill overlooking the lake.
an hour later we were back on the next ship
enjoying the rest of our journey.
(too) soon we arrived in Rapperswil.
We disembarked and a whole new crowd of passengers got on
while the ship sailed on to Zurich
we went to enjoy some Ice Cream and the lovely old town of Rapperswil
