Travel Day

Today we took the train from Salzburg Austria to Chur Switzerland.  It is a 5 hour train ride, but from a train you get to see the beautiful country side.

We arrived in Chur Switzerland around 6:00PM.  Once again I had trouble with Google maps on my phone navigating from the train station to the hotel.  We took an unplanned tour of Chur while we tried to find out hotel. We are staying at Zunfthaus zur Rebleuten in Chur. It is a comfortable hotel and we have a nice room on the top floor.  When we arrived in the room it was like an oven.  We opened a window and went out for dinner.


We wandered around Chur looking for a place to eat.  After walking around the city for 30 minutes we settled on a fondue place in the old part of town.  The restaurant was just opening for the evening and we were the first guests.  The waiter spoke a little English, but during dinner I heard him speak German and Italian.  I guess he need to know a little bit of everything.  We had the traditional fondue for dinner with several large beers.

After dinner we went to the grocery store to buy lunch for the train ride tomorrow.  I find it always interesting to go into a grocery store in another country.  Some things are different, but somethings are the same.  To me, a local grocery store give me a better understanding of how the locals live.
