swiss mini road trip

today we rented a car and drove to zurich, then past lucerne into the alps and back up to basel via bern. it was quite a dreary day most of the time, weather wise, but we fell in love with zurich and about died at the beauty of our glimpse of the alps. we were moving pretty quick so i didn’t get too many photos, and by 4:30pm it was snowing hard! we made a quick stop at the bern temple at the end of our loop.

{i’m glad i have a few minutes at the end of the day while the boy is working to share these photos!}

^^ there were so many jaw-dropping views, but we only stopped to capture a couple! ^^

  3. My husband and I were able to spend some time in Zurich several years ago, visiting his brother and family. We have a couple of the same pictures as you, including one in front of the temple (where my parents were married 40 years ago)!

  6. Great pix.:)

    My brother & sister-in-law went there recently & had a great time.

    Are you going to see where The Sound of Music was filmed? That's one place I've always wanted to go to - one day maybe.:)
