Interrailing means riding trains, with time to play cards, sleep, tease siblings, stare dreamily at the landscape, write, and read books. At the stops, we leave our big backpacks and set off for sightseeing (in our family, this also entails a good portion Geocaching). Shopping is not applicable since we have to carry everything we own on our backs, but there is time for the occasional visit to the playground or beach… But otherwise, we walk around and look at historic buildings, old districts, ports, and the like. Here are some impressions from our vacation’s second stop, Zurich, Switzerland.
We stayed with relatives on the outskirts of town in a residential area built around an old mill, with strict regulation so that the houses’ styles and materials follows the old mill. Quite fascinating!
