Swiss , German border
Entering Germany from Switzerland
We did a test drive up to Zurich Airport, Switzerland from Baretswil, Switzerland. We did this to prepare for the next day's real run to catch a flight to Barcelona, Spain. We wanted to check where the car rental return was and a quick run thru the airport to be ready for any possible next day issues.
Just something we do to prevent surprises especially flying on other Airlines, and familiarize ourselves with the departing airport. But we always have alternate reasons like today, a trip to the Rhine Falls, Switzerland and a quick visit to Germany.
We drove about 45 minutes from Zurich north to Schaffhausen. This is the area of the beautiful Rhine falls - a smaller Swiss version of our Niagara falls !! Fantastic.
After two hours wandering around at the falls, which was a special experience, and one we won't forget, we decided we would try to find a cache in Germany which was only about 6 kilometres away!
We drove to the German border and spent several hours caching and dropping Tracking bugs for others to find, and added another country souvenir for us. What a beautiful country drive into Germany and
a beautiful hide !! The cache we found was in a wooded area with a small fountain and pond.
We drove back to our little home in the foothills of the Alps in Baretswil. It was a wonderful evening drive back. As we came into our little village, we saw a small railway station where people were sitting out enjoying a beer. Well, after a long day on the road a cold beer sounded like a great idea. We stoppedand enjoyed a nice cold beer and plate of dried sausage as a little appetizer. Wonderful place and a patron of the restaurant opened his case, pulled out a trumpet and serenaded us with a tune.
