Tomorrow early in the morning, the long journey back to Switzerland will begin: First, it'll be by car from friendly Santa Barbara to San Francisco Airport where the car will be left behind. Afterwards it is down south again to LAX with AA. The longest leg of the trip will be from LAX to ZRH on Swiss, if they are still operating (haven't heard otherwise). There I have a little something to look forward to since I have taken out an upgrade to first class in the new A340 jet. Business class was quite good & comfortable already, so I wonder what first will be like.
The final bit is going to be from ZRH to BSL via good old Swiss Federal Railways ... even though that's only about an hour, I am sure it will be the longest hour!
How do they love to say here: "I'll be back, baby!"
