Today was mostly a travel day; we started in Champery and ended in Neuchatel. We began by driving through France to get to Geneva, Switzerland. The drive was beautiful and the mountains were a blast to drive through to get down to the lake.
After the long way to get to the Chillon Castle, we toured the castle. What I mean by long way is this; the normal route to get to Chillon from Champery might be 30-40 minutes, but our drive took almost 4 hours! This is because we drove the long way around the lake, and through France, the roads are small and the distance is quite long. Anyway, we toured this Castle and it was pretty well preserved, compared to some of the castles we have been to. It had original wall art and original wooden ceilings. The place was a pretty cool site to see.
We then drove up to Bern, Switzerland, where we just did a quick walk through the old town portion of Bern. This was a very pretty town, and it reminded us a lot of being back in Germany.
Tonight, we had a dinner with a prospective, KZValve distributor for the European market. We had sushi and Amanda had a dessert that was even served like sushi. The sushi was actually pretty good, because we thought it was odd we would be eating sushi in Switzerland.
