We validated our Eurail Pass today and this afternoon, we took the train to Chur. We learned a little about the trains today. The Eurail system is quite efficient but we discovered our limited knowledge of German (limited to danke, gesundheit, and Gewurztraminer ) really hampered us in the Zurich train station. The station is huge and bustling and there is not a sign in English to be found. Luckily most everyone speaks some English and after a few wrong turns and a few wrong queues, we found where to validate our passes. We also managed to find an ATM and extract a few Swiss Francs so we could rent a couple of lockers to stow our suitcases while we spent a few more Swiss Francs on glasses of wine and German hotdogs.
Then Linda and I boarded the train to Chur. The countryside is lovely. Very Swiss, but what else would you expect in Switzerland? Now I’ve seen where Heidi lived!
