Day 5 Locarno – Faido – Gotthard Pass – Furka Pass – Tasch – Zermatt

The green point was at the school in Faido, where children had prepared questions for us. They spoke only Italian, however the teacher translated!
The Pfarrer gave his blessing!!

 

 

 

 

 

The afternoon over the Gotthard and Furka Passes; a splendid drive !

Day 3 Appenzell – Wildhaus – Maienfeld – St. Moritz

We started our journey in a quiet Appenzell, but we had a nice meeting with a Kosovo refugié who got his Dutch citizenship in Holland and married a Dutch girl. He  is now working at the Appenzellbrewery and he  was happy to meet some Dutch people since he has the best memories of the Dutch hospitality. He offered us two packs of beer!

Our journey continued to Davos, picking up a journalist in Davos and at the summit of the Fuelapass he took this picture with Fleur with us.

Today we finished in St Moritz, where we stayed in a luxurieus Youth Hostel.

Day 2 Airport Dübendorf / Schaffhausen / Herisau

We watched an electrical driven sail (Segel) plane; it was capable of taking off on its own at a speed of only 40 kM / hr. This was a great experience and even more promising for the future. Also we visited Shaffhausen promoting the Grand Tour and E-mobility. We gave a lot of people the brochures about the WAVE and Grand Tour.

ROAD to the WAVE

Today was our second stretch from Holland on the way to Zurich. We came from the Area of Heidelberg via the Donauquelle to the area of Schaffhausen still in Germany. We drove under a clear blue sky thru the ‘blackest’ part of the Blackforest where they still make these funny Clocks !
