It’s raining during the night and it since it hasn’t stopped in the morning, we sleep in. Then we put our raincoats and we go about 8km towards Latschau, where we take the cable car (it’s unattended, so we have to board ourselves) and go up the mountain. The adventures begin immediately, since turns out instead of getting off at the final destination, we get off somewhere in between. It adds another hour to our trip, which isn’t by our schedule, but maybe it’s for good since when we reach the top of the mountain the rain has stopped.
We take a morning flight to Zurich. It is a little bit warmer there (15°) than in Riga. There We rent a black VW – with enough space for one bag to fit in a trunk and rest of them on the back seat. We take the freeway to Bodensee, where we leave the freeway to stop at the lake near Rorschach.
