Picked up our hire car this morning in Zurich - a VW Polo. After I got in the right side of the car I discovered the steering wheel was missing.

... bars and cafes that line the lakeside were packed with young trendy types (me and Alf joined them and sent Rob to McDonalds!!). There's some lovely shops here - could quite easily have blown the budget (what's left of it!). Switzerland has a reputation for being very expensive, but we have been surprised at how reasonable everything seems to be. We are now on the final few weeks of our journey. ...
