- Events of the Day
relocation day - from the Zurich inner city to the airport.
Connection was easy at airport from a hotel bus zone and 5 minute
shuttle to the hotel. Once settled in, back to the airport rail
station and final thermal spa town visit.
Zuzach is located on the Rhein river - Germany located on the opposite
bank. The town has been a Swiss spa destination for over 50
years. This is not a common English language town - so,
conversational German was very handy and experience with RF chip wrist
bands for the lockers was "kein problem". Hotel and Clinic
offices are connected to the spa location - so, the ages varied greatly.
and playful spa jets outlined the multiple of stainless steel outdoor
pools - including loungers made of tubular supports. (Understand
how steaks feel on an outdoor grill feel now). A large garden
area was full of zero-gravity loungers - one tilt and feet up and "out
for the count". A newer sauna area was located below the main
complex - required a small tube elevator and one could not help saying
a Star Trek quote, "Bridge please". On the Herren side was
a dry sauna (190 degrees) with a built in aquarium tank - amazed that the
fish did not seem to bake.
with any thermal spa visit, time accelerates at a quicken pace..
Relaxed, thoroughly "hydro-jetted", and covered with hints of
eucalyptus, time for return train trip back to Zurich. After a
full sunny day, the evening ended with rain and dancing lightning
show. Arriving back at the hotel was a blur.
