Coming to you live from Basel, Switzerland…
After approximately 19 hours of travel time, we pulled up to the hotel this afternoon at around 5:30pm in Basel. We flew into Frankfurt, and then took a bus to Basel — about a 4 hour bus trip. Imagine flying into Pittsburgh after an 8.5 hour flight, and then taking a bus to Washington, D.C.! But it’s great to be here, and my colleagues seem in good spirits.
I heard a few of them talk about taking a run tomorrow in three countries — apparently there is a route which takes you through France, Germany, and of course here in Switzerland, in about 45 minutes.
Tomorrow, I am traveling with my section-mate Neal Berntsen to the trumpet museum in Bad Sackingen, known as “The Trumpeter’s City”. It’s a short train ride to the museum (the only trumpet museum that I know of in the world), so I will be sure to get some pictures to share.
That’s all for now. Thanks for reading!
