Biking from Zürich to Germany & Zuly’s First Ticket

Bike to Germany

To celebrate that we found our apartment, we decided to bike to Germany just for fun. Since our bikes are still in storage, we borrowed a bike from Gratis Velos, all we had to do was to leave a deposit of 20CHF for each bike and show our IDs. Just 45 miles but we had so much fun. We made it to Hohentengen am Hochrhein, a town close to the border.

After getting the bikes

There we stopped at an Italian restaurant where we enjoyed a delicious pizza, cold beer and gelato before heading back home. We left around 11am and made it back by 7pm. Great work out though.

Nothing like a cold German beer after biking 24 miles

Mental note, make sure the tram ticket is still valid…

The latest item on my Swiss adventure list is the fine I received today. This is my first (and hopefully last) Swiss ticket I received! I got it at the tram because I bought one ticket thinking it was good for 2 hours, but nope, it wasn’t and 2.50CHF became a 100CHF fine. Yes, I was pretty pissed, at myself of course. The worst part was not getting the fine, but the fact there were 5 police men that took forever issuing the ticket while everyone looked. I almost died. It was one of the most embarrassing moments I ever had. Lesson learned.


Here’s the proof of my wrongdoing.
