Here comes the end of my Meaningful Meanders: the Tour in Europe
After having a short break in Stuttgart with my sister, I took the train to Schaffhausen, a Swiss town right on the German border.
This was the destination I was most excited about before departure because It’s so magical that I got to visit Francesca! Francesca and I stayed at the same Airbnb in Arequipa, Peru last summer, and we kept in touch ever since through emails. She also helped me out on my Meaningful Meanders project!
I am so grateful for Francesca’s hospitality on hosting me at her beautiful town and took me to the Alps to participate in an event that I would never forget in my life.
I got to stay at her beautiful house and enjoy the beautiful scenery around while chatting about our travel stories, my senior project and appreciating each other’s cooking!
Schaffhausen is a charming small town right by the Rhine river and I was amazed how clean the river every time I saw the river, too bad I forgot to bring my swimming suits so I didn’t get to jump into the river and feel how clean it is!
We went to see Rhinefall which is the biggest waterfall in Europe! It was actually my second time there, I was there when I was 8 years old with my mom, it’s so magical to be back there after 14 years! Maybe our tour bus had passed by Francesca then, who knows?!
We also got to visit Stein am Rhine, a historical town that has kept many traditional Swiss architectures, like the Erker!
The highlight of our trip is to go to the Alps (Heidiland Area) to participate in a concert hosted my Francesca’s friend! The location was unbelievable beautiful, and we got to enjoy cheese fondue while listening to the amazing live music!
I also got up early to see the sunrise and chill out with the donkeys, imagining I was Heidi on the Alps~ The atmosphere, the people, the scenery I experienced there was truly unforgettable and special to me!
My Switzerland trip marks the great end of my tour and the whole trip just represented the essence of my Meaningful Meanders project. Thank you Francesca being my special friend that showed me around Switzerland and make our magical friendship more meaningful! Can’t wait to continue our #MeaningfulMeanders in the near future!
