Davos and Klosters

Lunch today was amazing! We took a bus, 2 trains,and a bus, then walked along a lake at 1500 meters to the Schweizer Restauant. At first glance, the menu had nothing that was red meat and gluten free, so I checked out the salad buffet. Wunderbar! I composed a salad bowl of leaf lettuce, radiccio, arugula, marinated artichokes, 2 kinds of beans, tuna, cheese and a slab of what tasted like fabulous feta, a stuffed grape leaf, grated carrot and radish, topped with pepitas and walnuts, lemon and basil oil.  And to top it all off, the waitress offered a gluten free bun, which came half way through my salad, and was freshly baked, and had a wonderful crust. Lavished with tangy swiss butter, it was a great treat.The sparkling apple juice turned it into the best restaurant meal I have had in Switzerland.

The other bonus for the day: when we left Wettswil, it was misty and damp and very dark. When we got above 1200 meters, just before our walk, we were above the clouds, and had brilliant sunshine and warmth after lunch as we visited Davos and Klosters.

Davos is where the World Economic Forum meets each year in February, and where the rich gather to ski. Today it was very quiet, as it is between seasons, and no one was visiting their holiday home here.
Check out for the flavour of the town.

Klosters is where the royal family - the British one, that is, skis.

This website tells you all about it.

Tomorrow Josef and I will hike on a part of the Swiss Camino. I am looking forward to a bit of the camino before I return home.
