I tried out my backpack by filling it and vacuuming my bedroom. I got pretty hot. Let's hope Switzerland isn't too hot. I am so not a backpack person. I also have shoes that a hobbit would love if they wore shoes.
We fly to Seattle, then to Amsterdam, then to Geneva, get on a train and ride to Lausanne. Then get on another train and ride up the alps to the town of Leysin. Then we eat dinner and immediately go on a hike!!! I hope the hobbit shoes fulfill their duty.
