I can't emphasise enough how much I have enjoyed reading all about your Swiss adventures - I love your writing style and the photos have been great - some nice quirky ones too!
Having spent most of our time in the Bernese Oberland during our trips, last year's addition of a week in St. Moritz was a great success, hence this year's return. Now we have decided a week in Ticino is the way to go for 2018!
Though we have made Thun or nearby our base for many years we have travelled on day trips all over the place from there - we are not averse to long train trips etc. - in fact we regard them as part of the adventure but the Engadine and Ticino are a long way from Thun so to really get to spend proper time there we need to split our bases.
A couple of years ago we did a river cruise from Kreuzlingen to Schaffhausen which we enjoyed very much and when we docked briefly at Stein am Rhein we thought it would be a good place for a day trip - it is on this year's to do list!
I know the subject of waterfalls seems to divide opinion! We had been to Niagara but still felt our visit to the Rheinfalls was well worth it - we did the long round trip up the river and back as well which was a lovely peaceful way to spend an afternoon. We like to experience all the different things Switzerland has to offer so have enjoyed other waterfalls at Giessbach, Reichenbach, Trummelbach, Staubach and a few smaller ones elsewhere!
A few years ago we spent a week in Ulm in Bavaria (visiting Christmas markets in the area) and visited Lindau from there and gazed across the Bodensee to Switzerland on a very blustery grey day! Our daughter had recommended Ulm as she had spent a week there at a Science Conference and we really liked it there.
Now you have discovered Switzerland I am sure you will want to return so here's to the next adventure! I look forward to further contributions to help other travellers - it is good that we can all learn from each other on this forum and I am so grateful to Arno and Annika for setting it up in the first place and keeping it running so well and to all the regular contributors who share their knowledge with us. And of course to newcomers who come up with interesting questions - I have sometimes found new ideas from their queries too!
Only 10 days to go and our next adventure starts - the excitement and anticipation grows!
Thank you again for sharing all your fun and enthusiasm with us here!
