Farewell Sole Mio Farewell Sole Mio Farewell Sole Mio

our second home thank you Domenico !
After several farewells in Bangkok and Buriram, with an especially emotional farewell in Sole Mio Restaurant Bangkok, we have packed up and left 28th June with 8 check in bags and 4 hand luggage on Swiss LX 181 to Zurich. An near empty flight allowed us to get away with no extra charges on our 180 kg check in mountain.

Gallen. It became famous for its beer making, "Wiler Hofbrau". The story goes that the clergy prayed and made politics in St. Gallen, but came for parties to Wil. As a 'Wiler Buerger' Nenad does have certain rights in this city going beyond the simple political residency. Here is also where Nui and Nenad, with the permission of 'Neno Bear', decided to get married.
