Our regular holiday interlude – 14

Probably the last epistle from Ron (till October):

Our last full day and another hot one. Decided to go to Lugano in Ticino so set off by bus and train to Arth Goldau. When the Lugano train pulled in it was packed to the gunnels so had to rethink our plans. We saw an almost empty train in Locarno so jumped on that and off we went through the Gotthard Base Tunnel. Had a little walk round town in very hot sun and had a drink and cake before taking postbus back to Bellinzona. From there we took trains over the old Gotthard route to Flelen where we took steam paddle boat back to Vitznau. Do not know whether there will be an email tomorrow depends on how we get to airport and whether there is free wifi there. If no email then next one will be from Ron when he goes to Germany in October.
