Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World

The idea is to cross Switzerland from north to south in small stages:

We started right in the center of my hometown Basel, in the townhall by the market place:

We went along the river Rhein and saw the 'Münster' (Catherdral) in the back:

We passed the old city walls:

And the stadium, where Roger Federer won the Swiss Indoors:

And finally came to a brook where Joy dived in despite the fact that is was minus 4° degrees when we left the house in the morning:

The first colours of spring were on the more sunny meadows:

And then we reached a pond where Joy went on search for ducks:

We had to watch out that no other creature would steal our sandwich:

Some were quite frightful - but then: We are heading towards the 'Jurassic Mountains':

The next morning we ascended the first hill (from 261m to 676m). I did not take so many photos on the second day, as walking with the camera hanging on my neck became a bit uncomfortable:

It was a very nice walk through forest and one could think that this fountain was put there just for us:

The first photo was in fact the last one I took that day of a tired and happy Joy - and on the map you can see with the tiny red spot, that we already made some progress, even if we were only on tour for 4.5 hours!

To be continued ... in hope of good weather!
