... fondue at our hostel that we got to cook up and enjoy, Mmm so tasty. We then took in my first Couch Surfing meeting beside the river.

He had a quick shower and then took us for a drive to see some of his work sites, which Bradley was looking forward to. He took us to his most recent one, about 15mins drive away in another little ...
... so I went out for dinner alone. First time I've ever done that, it feels weird. I think I should bring a magazine next time or something. Maybe a puzzle. I wanted to embrace the Swiss culture so I had cheese fondue! But it took me about 5 attempts to find a restaurant that served fondue for one. So sad. Someone at the restaurant even sent me over a cocktail because they thought that I was stood up. Last time I eat ...
