June 11th, 2006, first time in Germany / Europe...

Saturday morning, 07:00, we started for Switzerland ... the car full with 5, luggage up to the roof. After only 5 1/2 hours (max. speed only 240km/h due to the winter tires, sorry) and crossing the "Julier Pass" in the Alps (2.260m), we arrived in Champfér, close to St. Moritz, at 1.800m.

The weather was great, the snow well prepared (sadly hardly any natural snow) and we had great fun. Unfortunately Cynthia fell on day two and hurt her right knee. She had to stop skiing, but luckily a visit in the clinic showed no broken bones!
