Swiss memories

My husband and I love travelling. However, our holiday in Switzerland has been the most memorable one so far. We reminisce about it every now and then. It was an impromptu decision, to take a 6 day trip to the swiss alps, while on our way to India. What made it so exciting was that it was a spontaneous idea, one that wasn't planned much ahead of time. We researched and planned everything using tripadvisor (a great travel resourse). For most part of our trip we stayed in a family owned hotel in the village of Wengen, and got a taste of the swiss hospitality which is worth experiencing. Here are some pictures of the gorgeous views that I tried to capture - the sun shining on the snow capped peaks, streams and waterfalls running through the mountains, wooden houses with thier flowers filled window boxes, serene lakes with blue-green water and the beautiful churches. I must admit that the photos do not do justice to the stunning beauty of this picturesque country.

  1. I went to Switzerland years ago with a high school buddy (we both ditched our hubbies and kids back home :-)) and met up with a third high school friend living in Zurich. Oh what memories your post brings back....I loved it! And Lucerne was breathtaking! Thanks for stopping by my blog Neha!
