IACE 2019 – Day 4
We started our day bright and early with breakfast at Restaurant Tennischugele. After our breakfast we took a scenic flight in the Super Puma over the Alps to the Engadin region. Our route took us from Grenchen (LSZG), Thun, Interlaken, Wengen, Jungfraujoch (Top of Europe), Aletsch Glacier, Gotthard Pass, Lukmanier Pass, Splügen and Maloja to Samedan (LSZS). What caught our attention is how the glacial water is distributed into five different bodies of water, the North, Adriatic, Mediterranean, Black Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.
We landed at Samedan airport and walked to our accommodation in Celerina. We took a hike around the lake of Staz. There, we ate lunch there under a tree enjoying the views. After lunch we proceeded to look around the town of St. Moritz, where we later took the train to the accommodation for some much needed sleep! After our well needed naps, we met up with Willi and Suzanne and their grandson for dinner at Muottas Muragl (2456m high!). We all took the gondola to the top and took pictures of the breathtaking view. We had a very nice dinner, soon followed by Swiss made ice cream. After an awesome day, we slowly proceeded back to the accommodation. On the way home we stopped and observed the passing of the ISS with the stars surrounding it. Breathtaking!
