Postcards from...

It was great fun hosting our U.S.  next door neighbors in Switzerland last week.... lots of dining alfresco, visiting sites around Geneva, and binge-watching "Homeland" :).  A family of 5 with three young adults who were game for an adventure; we did undertake one short getaway to the Bernese Oberland area in Switzerland... world-renowned for its beauty and extreme sports.  It most certainly did not disappoint....

We all fell in love with this Bernese Mountain dog

The First Flier Zip Line in Grindelwald - walking up to it...

... and going down.... 800 meters of pure exhilaration!

Five of our group went paragliding in Interlaken (regrettably, I chickened out).  They all said it was fantastic and not scary (even one who experienced motion sickness).   For a great "pseudo-experience"; check out Ashtyn's video.... GoPro just might be the greatest thing since sliced bread. ;)  

Like stepping into a storybook is the best way to describe this area.  So happy we got to write a chapter of our own with good friends.

  2. Oh Crissy, what I would give to hop on a jet plane with my loves and watch them run in that field. Ahhhhh....I'm dreaming right this moment. Yes, you are most certainly writing a storybook. How amazing and what gorgeous neighbors you have waiting for you back in KY. :)


Thanks for sharing!
