Dreaming of the big wide world

DreamingI doubt that Silvanus saw many motor boats from his hillside home on Elba. But he certainly watched the birds and shipping. And dreamed of adventure in the big, wide world.

Perhaps that is what inspired me to take a day off work and go ‘sailing’ in the MS Panta Rhei on the Zürichsee. In spite of the distractions of the splendid scenery and the gleeful fellow passengers, this turned out to be really a good way to escape from the daily grind and concentrate on writing my book. Thanks to the ZVV 9 O’Clock Pass, which allows a day’s free travel in the entire Canton of Zürich for CHF 12.50, it’s not only a comfortable workplace but also quite affordable.
