Yogurt with banana and granola crunch!
Today we decided to do something low-key and local as we are still not over our jetlag! After our European breakfast, we drove into downtown Zürich and went to the Christmas market at the Hauptbahnhof (main train station). We wandered around the market looking at all the different hand crafts and foods etc. and ended up buying a puzzle game after spending quite some time playing with it at the booth. Dad O., this one has you written all over it, but you'll have to come visit us to play it, as we didn't buy two!

We had some sausages (bratwurst for Jon of course) with bread for lunch and then wandered some more in Zürich's shopping district. All the walking started to tire us out, so we turned the wandering into a random drive around Zürich for a while before heading back to the apartment for a nap. Spent the remainder of our afternoon and evening planning out our next excursions, including Germany tomorrow! Plus a homecooked dinner of pasta with tomato sauce 😊
