Frankfurt & Zurich, Switzerland!

Frankfurt & Zurich, Switzerland!

Hi all! Sorry we haven’t posted for a while. Ryder wasn’t feeling very well in Frankfurt, had a fever and bad cough on our second day. Our one full day in Frankfurt, we both decided we didn’t want to explore the city after viewing the dregs of society outside our window all night. Ryder was really under the weather the night before we left and I was, of course, a little worry bug.

Sunday morning we took the train from Frankfurt direct to Zurich. His fever spiked to 102 when we arrived and I took him to a nearby clinic in the train station. Turns out, he is down with a virus which could possibly be pneumonia. The clinic doctor instructed us not to leave Zurich until Wednesday, so we are taking it easy for the next few days. I ventured out this evening to find some take-out, walking down the narrow cobble stone streets. The city is absolutely beautiful with all the character of Barcelona streets, filled with people who look French. The few Swiss we’ve had the pleasure to interact with are kind and helpful, but not to the extent of the Irish.

Ryder hasn’t had a fever all day today, so hopefully after one more day of resting we will be back in tourist mode. We don’t plan to linger in Zurich after Wednesday as this city has already burned a significant hole in our wallets. We’re looking at taking a train down to Torino or Milan next! Then on to Florence!! Ah, can’t wait for Italy!!

*Due to insufficient internet connections we were unable to load more than one photo for this post!! Super lame, we plan to rectify the situation sometime tomorrow or in Italy…


  1. Hope you’re feeling better soon, Ryder. And hopefully neither of you ends up sick again!
