During our holiday in France we popped over the border to Switzerland for 1 night to see my ex-employers and the girl I once nannied :-)
We caught a train on a super discount because we were travelling with Dolly. It's part of a program that the French govt encourage people to travel with children so they get a chance to see and learn. Once in Switzerland my ex-employer had someone pick us up at the station and took us to a gorgeous Hotel Krafft on the Rhine in Basel. My ex-boss also picked up the cost of hotel and meals.
The Rambling Expat got tired and were able to go to bed while I stayed on and chatted for another hour. Eventually they left me and I may not see them for quite a few years. I stood on the cold dark street waving them off, feeling very sad.

Anyway, moving on... the Hotel Krafft follows some green principals. No cute little bottles of shampoo, the food is mostly organic, the hand towels in the restaurant bathroom are cloth and are washed and reused. This made me feel very happy.
