スイスの温泉地にて

イタリア食材の仕入れ担当クレアから、温泉旅行レポートが届きました!
なんとタイムリーな!でもスイスなら海派ではなく山派ですよね..だって海がないもん(笑)

クレア一家が訪れたLeukerbadと言う町は、私も電車で通り過ぎたことがあります。
温泉を目指す旅行者たちがこの駅でゾロゾロと降りていく光景が印象的でした。

それでは、クレアのレポート、行ってみよう♪

*クレアはイタリアに今住んでいますが出身はスイス・ジュネーブです。
彼女のお父さまはジュネーブの郊外に住んでいます。

This year my father had his 80's birthday ! He decided to have one party
with all his best friends (he invited 100 people and only 85 came up !)
and his family like a lunch buffet in which everyone could bring a starter
or a dessert and he ordered a hot main course. It was a big success and he
was very pleased afterwards to see all his friends and family together.

私の父は今年80才。彼のお誕生日に友人ら85人を呼んで立食パーティを開くことに。


Then he decided that as a family (his 3 daughters and a families = 9 people)
we should do something together in the autumn for a whole week-end.
He chose to go in the Swiss mountains, in a place called Leukerbad,
where my grand-mother (but not his mother) came from, where there are some
hot springs, that made the village famous.

But first we rallied at a place everyone knew for having some picnic together
and then we went for a walk, my sister and he wanted to show us (they walk
a lot together on the mountains), they said it was spectacular. Oh yes it was !
My daughter Maddy was afraid to go on these metallic bridges, because they
swing a bit and you could see underneath your feet. But otherwise the view was fantastic.

娘マディは非常に怖がってましたが、景色は最高でした!

Then we went to Leukerbad where some cousins of my mum's are running a kind
of youth hostel with rooms for 4-6 or 10 people, each with their own bathroom.
Very clean and very comfortable. We had a stroll in the village, before going to dine
in one of the best restaurant of the place (which my dad phoned in advance to book).
Everything was excellent. We had a very good evening.

なかなか素敵な宿なんですよ。


Then my dad and my sister went to bed around 11 p.m. and the rest of the
company stayed to have some more drinks and some good laughs together
(because my dad is rather serious). Then we went to the place to sleep, but
that took us quite a long time, because some people were pretty drunk !
They were walking slowly, always stopping to have a laugh, ...

皆で美味しい食事を頂いて、マジメな父と妹は11時くらいに就寝。
しかし残りのメンバー(自分も含め)で遅くまで宴会が続きました(^^ゞ

In the morning the breakfast was ready for us at 8 a.m. and after that we went
to the baths. Oh! I love those : nicely hot, inside and outside, each of the swimming
pools have a different temperature and different jets and other things. There was
even a small sauna, and also for the kids a long waterslide ! I love it !

翌日は朝8時に朝食を摂り温泉へ。 内風呂と外風呂がありまして全浴槽の温度が違います。
子供用のウォータースライドもあるんですよ。

There is this tradition in these mountains that they accompany the cattle,
sheep or cows, to the high pastures for the summer, then in autumn
they bring them back to the valley, so that they can eat better food
up there. And this Sunday was the day they brought them back,
which used to be a big feast for the people of the villages, but
now is more like a touristic attraction.

この日ここに帰ってきました。観光客向に見学できるようになっています。

Then as my father paid for a 3 hours ticket, we went out to have a bite to eat.
So there was this big tent under which they made food, cheese raclette (melted)
or sausages, with fries. There were also some attraction like this family-band,
the father and his 2 kids, and the typical Alp horn, with which they used to
communicate from one side of a valley to the other side. Then everybody went
home. But that was an excellent week-end, everything was perfect !

この村で運営するイベントもしっかり楽しみながら過ごした父の誕生日はとても楽しいひと時でした!

*gwanko's comment*
スイスの温泉って天然ものではなくて人工的な。
しかも効能なしのただのお湯!?と疑いながら読んでましたが、

なんとなんと、ちゃんと湧いてるお湯らしい。
正真正銘の天然温泉のようでした!!

もし機会がありましたら、是非立ち寄ってみてください!
