Switzerland - Rheinfall
We got near the Rheinfall at Switzerland in the very early morning.
About 7am and I'm not really fully awake yet even though I had a great helping at breakfast.
It is Europe's largest waterfall.
I can feel the power of the water, flowing and hitting the rocks.
A very magnificent sight to behold.
