Where I stayed
Family Marcel und Daniela Frey's Guesthouse
A stunning day welcomes us to the land of high mountains and cheese. The blue above creates a breathtaking contrast to the harsh, white Alps we are about to cross. The law-abiding Swiss generously apply their brakes as soon as they see such a big, dirty and clearly unpredictable car – resulting in an easy and trouble free journey. Our arrival in Zurich, at my brother's place, is complete with welcome champagne (the real French stuff) and loud shrieks emanating from my three nieces (4 year old Tamlyn and Justine and 1 year old Amy): "Auntie SCHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHNIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIECK". We spend a week defrosting in the sauna and being spoilt by family and friends. We leave Zurich and celebrate Marvin’s birthday in Luzern in style with Karin, Daniel and little Simeon – with more French stuff, the Moet flows and we consider moving in.....! But home for Marvin is now so near and we are looking forward to seeing parents, Oma, sister and friends again, having our own four walls, a constantly warm shower and a washing machine! Dortmund, here we come!
