Zurich, Switzerland Part 3

Our last day in Zurich we went out to Uetilberg to check out the views

On the walk to the viewpoint, there is part of the solar system trail. The planets are to scale compared to the sun (above) and the distance is to scale as well

Mercury is a tiny dot in the blue

Venus is slightly larger

And the last planet we saw on the trail - Earth

Some fun lights

And the viewing platform

Benches at the overlook

It was beautiful! Still clouds covering the mountains in the distance, but it was still really gorgeous

The viewpoint from the viewing platform (the viewing platform cost a euro)

And the view from the viewpoint on the ground

A weird zoo(?) thing by the train station

And back to Zurich for lunch

But first - the Polybahn! It was closed the day prior so we couldn't ride it then when we rode the other two

This takes you up to the university

And finally lunch at Pot au Vert which we saw when we were wandering. This is the only place that was disappointing foodwise in Zurich. It was fine, but nothing exciting. We had a plate of steamed veggies with no seasoning

And tofu something which was okay, but I think I make better food than this. So not my favorite

Then it was off to the train station

And a train to Luzerne. Zuirch was great and I would definitely go back again if only to eat all the tasty food! It is very expensive, but oh I loved it there.

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Ferry home - Tórshavn

The boat home was just as smooth and uneventful as the ride to Iceland. We left Iceland at 8pm Wed, Thurs at 3pm we arrive in Tórshavn and had a few hours to wander around, then back to the boat for the night, Friday was at sea, and Saturday we arrived in Hirtshals at 11am. 

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Final Thoughts

That is it for our Iceland adventures! I wanted to post one last wrap up just to say a few things I didn't put elsewhere, or organize my overall thoughts in one place. 

The end

So it started raining on us for days and we cut out to come back to Seattle for a few days and wait for it to clear up.....and then Raymond decided he really did not want to go back out. So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g
