Zurich Airport Hilton (Zurich, Switzerland)
I woke up and went up to the executive lounge for breakfast then returned to my room for more sleep. The next time I woke up it was 12:30! I must have been real tired and needed the extra sleep. It helps to have an extra nice bed to sleep in and earplugs too.
By 2:00 I managed to pull myself together and caught a shuttle to the airport and train station. Though it was a sunny day I didn’t see a reason to go into Zurich to look around since I had been there only a few months ago. I walked towards the ticket counter at the airport train station and bought my ticket for Zermatt. I made sure to get a direct ticket for Visp (a Swiss town) where I’ll transfer to the cog-wheeled train that will take me up the hill to Zermatt.
I stopped by a Coop store on the way back to where I’ll catch the hotel shuttle. There I bought a couple of sandwiches, yogurt and a beer. Later I went to the executive lounge for dinner but wasn’t too excited about what was being served. It was okay and was full by the time I left the lounge.
I still must have been tired since I could only watch a couple of episodes of Merlin before I was ready for bed. Tomorrow I leave at 10:40 a.m. for Zermatt.
