The geohash is near the village of Zizers (canton Graubünden).
TheOneRing - by public transport.
 The Expedition
Today is my birthday and because you only have once a year the opportunity to get the Birthday Geohash, I wanted to have a try. I took a really early train to Zürich and further to Landquart. It would be possible to take another train to Zizers, but I wanted to walk a bit more this time. from Landquart the map showed a distance to walk of about 5km, which fitted perfectly into my plans.
The way to the geohash was not very difficult, the difference in altitude was something between 50m and 100m. The view onto the Alps was magnificent and very impressive. The photographs can only give a very rough impression.
While I was sitting on a bench and was having a small breakfast a man walked by and sat down next to me. He said that he walks this way every day and that he is 92 years old. I was totally perplexed and we talked a little bit about the Churer Rheintal. At some point he asked me what I did there. I was afraid that it could be too much for him to tell him that I was following a game from the internet. So I only said that I made a walking-tour and that I had not been before to Graubünden, which was both true. After a while he said that he must go on until the next bench, something I could perfectly understand, one has to move slowly and carefully at this age.
I took many photos as I was more and more fascinated by the countryside and walked back to Landquart. As long as it still was my birthday I thought I deserved a good meal for lunch. On my way I saw a restaurant which offered rösti in an iron pan. I couldn't resist, but before starting to eat I took a photo. The picture does not lie it was as delicious as it looked. Afterwards I took a train back home via Zürich.
