I was up at the crack of dawn this morning but it was totally worth it!
After a quick breakfast, Roger and I kitted up and hopped onto to motorbike for the next 3 and a half hours. It was fantastic! I have been on a motorbike in years and the hair pin turns and beautiful views made for a perfect ride! There was only one hair raising moment where we had a little slip on the white stripe in the road but no damage done and plenty more of the ride to soak up!
We made some prime stops along the way and I took as much GoPro footage as I could manage. I needed to morph into an owl to take in all of what was around me, my eyes and head just couldn’t do it quickly enough!
As the weather started to hot up, we headed back and peeled off the gear before hopping onto the moped and going to meet Vilma for lunch!
It was a lovely goodbye meeting and of course Vilma took me to try the best chocolate in Switzerland and the signature “chocolate kisses” that were totally to die for!
After saying goodbye, Roger took me to the supermarket to stock up on chocolate (not just for the flight home….although tempting!) And then we went back to the apartment to freshen up and have a little quiet time.
For the route back to the airport, Roger took me by the lake in Zürich and I tried to remember every little stunning detail. Traffic flowed – typical when you want it to be slower – and after a drink it was time to say goodbye and head into the airport for my flight back home.
As soon I was in the airport and settled, Roger messaged to say his car had broken down – it must have missed me already! Don’t worry, I will miss you too Switzerland!
