My friends from Austin joke about my life out here. How will I spend my days? Will I turn into one of those "ladies that lunch" in Europe? I hate to admit it...actually, I love to admit it...I have been known to occasionally be a lady that lunches. Since I am such a giver and my mom is out here for the month of November wanting to experience all that the hausfrau life has to offer, I figure she needed to have this experience too.
After a few days of playing hausfrau, we decide to venture out and do some sightseeing in Rapperswil -- of course having lunch while we are there. It is at the southern edge of the Zurichsee about a 40-minute train ride away.
Mind you that we haven't done any research about what to do in Rapperswil. I had read one short blog post on my one-stop Swiss travel blog, Swisstory about the city, but we were basically going in with our eyes closed. Another fun thing to do when living here. Just jump on a train and go. Mom is really getting the full experience.
*Dad, I hope you know Mom is getting pretty used to this lifestyle. Not sure she is coming back home.
