Here’s my continuation of our traveling around Switzerland with or without relatives. For my long-time followers, you can say this can be my last trip before going back to Zurich then eventually back to the land of the desert where we stay as expats. For the new readers, welcome to my blog and I hope you will be interested browsing, reading the rest of my adventures around the Globe and some events too!
Basel is just an hour away to/from Zurich and so we had a day out for a change since our going to Frankfurt was canceled because of the unfortunate incident of my friend’s. So what better way to make it up is to plan and book train tickets to Basel.

I just show you around (by foot) through my photos and it is easy to get around just make sure you don’t forget the landmarks going back to the train station. Tip: Make a photo of some landmark that you will be passing so you will remember the streets, buildings or statues etc. that’s how I do it in unfamiliar places. 😉

The Beautiful bridge over the river Rhine that connects to 6 Countries in Europe. This is the same river (Rhinefalls) that we are trying to locate when we got lost in the German border. See this LINK to read my previous post about it and ending into another town in Switzerland you probably never heard of.

Do not underestimate this river as it moves very fast! The current is very strong that can power up the little cruise ship above! If you think you are a good swimmer and wants to experienced how a strong current feels like, then you can rent a floater beneath the bridge. Swimmers lining up to dry under the sun after the swim.
Below photos near the river, went to a Park for our son enjoyment and going back we have seen some religious sect dancing and inviting people to join or to donate and a mini Toy Museum and another Museum (History) that unfortunately, we are too late.

All Blacks Flag NZ, vinneve
Then by accident, as we looked up we saw the NZ All Blacks flag (rugby sport) in one of the apartments in the City Centre going back to the train station. For sure some Kiwis are living there! KIA ORA mate! 🙂
It was a very good family day out!!!
