We set off just before 9am after a hearty breakfast at our hotel in Constance, through the city for about half an hour and then into a lovely forest area next to a stream. After just over three hours we arrived at our intended destination, Märstetten, and thought why stop now? So we went on, for another four hours and made it to Tobel. Just over seven hours of walking and about 26km under our belts.
All up a wonderful day in the sunshine with plenty of spectacular views and animals and hay bales. We’ve had dinner and my hayfever tablet has worn off and my nose is running and I can’t stop sneezing so I’m going to keep this short!
We’re definitely going to feel our legs and feet tomorrow and are worried we may have overdone it on day one! But the weather was too good to stop. Leo has a sore part at the back of his knee and I have a blister on the back of my left heel. Not to worry! We’ll power on tomorrow (we’ll probably be up quite early as it’s 8.15pm and Leo is asleep already!) and see how far we can go.
Enjoy the small selection of photos. I’ll add descriptions when I get home.
Wishing you a wonderful day.

Good thing you had a hearty breakfast! Think you made up for any 15 minute exercise slacking in previous days with your 7 hour hike. Not surprised Leo is asleep – guess you were not far behind. However ‘injuries’ on day one are not great. Does look like you are having great weather. I enjoyed what I assume was the selfie – you look very intrepid and happy. What was that prehistoric mini-mammoth – looks cute but lethal – wonder if Heidi used to have them on her farm? Wish I was there – although perhaps only if you stop walking after 3 not 7 hours
We decided to keep walking because the weather on our planned day five (tomorrow) is supposed to be pretty bad. I think I would like a trip where we walked less than 20km a day too! Next time perhaps?!
Glad you are enjoying my part of the country!! We don’t get many tourists LOL I shall be interested where you go from Tobel… 😉 Enjoy!
I’m abroad right now or we could have had a blog meet!
Next time we’re there, swissrose, I will definitely let you know. It would be wonderful to meet!
Please do! Märstetten is very close – we are in Frauenfeld… 🙂
(sorry, I am just catching up after being away for most of May and into June!)
