Yesterday was a long day of travel and so far, waking up in Mendrisio, Switzerland is off to a bad start; My throat is swollen and my head is pounding. Plus, we have no food and there is no room service or restaurant on the property. Thankfully, JC headed out to the train station for supplies and came back with bread, cheese, meat, effervescent cold medicine (the only kind he could find), and a large bottle of water that turned out to be fizzy and sweet – yuck! I don’t remember how, but at some point a bottle of regular water appeared by the bed where I was sleeping and it felt like a lifesaver. I spent most of today sleeping and trying to recover.

Tomorrow, we are moving to a different hotel in the area that has been getting good reviews on TripAdvisor. It’s also small, but people are saying that the owner is exceptionally friendly and encourages guests feel comfortable and at home. Being sick, I don’t want to think about moving, but there are two additional selling points: 1) our new room will have a balcony and 2) there will be a restaurant on the hotel property that serves a nice breakfast spread each morning. The thought of good food is almost always enough to motivate me, so see ya tomorrow Hotel Morgana!

In the meantime, I leave you with this music video for Hideaway by Kiesza. This song has been stuck in my head for the past few days…
