Day 5 brought us to Breisch, and our trip to the Black Forest. What a great day we had. I had looked forward to the “Black Forest Cherry Cake”, but I was so pleasantly surprised by the taste of the Black Forest Ham. It should be illegal for anything to taste this good. We spent some time at the Christmas Market again this afternoon, then more mulled wine, and back to our cozy ship. Day 6 brought us to Basel, where we disembarked our ship, and were transported to our hotel in Zurich. For the next two days, we were so captivated by Zurich, that time just flew by us. We are not snow skiers, but for some of our fellow travelers, this was a true “White Christmas”. What a way to end the best trip ever, this was.
Our flight back was out of Zurich was on Swiss Air, through Munich, to Charlotte. Phil had booked the premium seating, and both airlines treated us like royalty. We actually got back in Charlotte early in the evening, so we had plenty of time to talk to our family, and unwind.
