    Interlaken, Switzerland

    May 26, 2017 in Switzerland ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Arriving back at the bottom of the mountains in the late afternoon we headed straight in to Interlaken for a couple of wines. We couldn’t resist going down to the river’s edge to the check out the ice cold, crystal clear water made up of the ice melt from the mountains above Interlaken. Interlaken itself was representative of our general experience in Switzerland - beautiful scenery, clean cities, and friendly people. It’s no mystery why people are willing to pay high taxes to call this amazing country home! Cannot wait to visit again!Read more

    Jungfraujoch, Switzerland

    May 26, 2017 in Switzerland ⋅ ☀️ 5 °C

    Today bought the much anticipated visit to the ‘Top of Europe’, home of Europe’s highest railway station, which is covered in snow 365 days per year. Jungfraujoch did not disappoint! Lisa and I saw snow for the first time, made very poor miniature snow men, had a snowball fight, stacked it in the snow, and behaved like little kids sliding along the ice in the ice caves! The trip up on the train was unforgettable with incredible views of the Swiss Alps. This day will not be forgotten anytime soon!Read more

    Winding our way through the hills revealing our first views of the Swiss Alps was without a doubt a very memorable way to spend my birthday!

    Between Barcelona and Avignon we stopped to visit Pont du Gard, a 2000+ year old, Roman built Aqueduct. This three tiered, 160 ft high structure crosses the Gardon River and once carried 44 million gallons of water per day to the citizens of nearby Nimes.Read more

    Monaco

    After a day exploring Nice we took a short trip back to the tiny country of Monaco, playground of the rich and famous! The scenic drive overlooking the Mediterranean are spectacular. While in Monaco we visited St Nicholas Cathedral, the Grand and Sun Casinos in Monte Carlo, and enjoyed some beautiful views over the harbour. We were also luck enough to visit Monaco one week before the Formula One came to town so we had a quick drive on the track and got a photo on the hairpin outside the Sun Casino :)Read more
