Cachleand Games 2016 - St. Gallen / Suisse

I had a great time in Switzerland at the Cacheland Games 2016 in St. Gallen. Together with Laguna.sam, I stayed 2 days at this nice event.


It was a Mega-event, so enough people were there. On Friday, the highlight was Bernhard Hoecker with his experience as a geocacher from his book. Yes, he is a passionate geocacher and had some great stories to tell.





On Saturday the Cacheland-Games were in the focus. For most. We instead, went to the Alpsteinpanorama cache and get a glimpse of the breathtaking view of the alps from one side, and the Bodensee on the other side.





Of course on the way back, we stopped in Egnach, directly at the Bodensee in Switzerland to make a cache there, too and enjoyed some great views at this massive lake that connects 3 countries.



Now Hoecker made clear, caching is not for statistics of found caches. But he drove us to try making more "country points". Oh dear, I hope he didn't initiate a travel fever :)
And so Laguna.sam and I had a great time and a lot of fun in Switzerland. And I learned something about the people there, which I might report on another location soon.

Oh, and don't even think about to buy french frites... 10 CHF ($10.25 USD) for a normal portion. And other food weren't much cheaper. We had enough in our bags fortunately ;).
