swiss sundays! and some links :)

Sunday, August 15, 2010



If you're ever here, you have to visit the Trift Bridge. We did this hike with some friends last month and it was amazing!
~
And happy Sunday! - I had a fun Fri. the 13th out on the town then I met my sister in laws with a bottle of prosecco at the train station yesterday to celebrate their arrival here! I managed to open it safely, I always get nervous, but Jen let me practice Friday night ;) They left today for Italy travels and Mark and I and his mom will meet up with them next weekend in Cinque Terra for some quality family time before we head back here to show them around der Schweiz. As for today, it's me, my puppy, coffee and rain =)

I love the internet:

And I had a look at that apartment, indeed really cozy and then I saw this amazing colorful South African house, I LOVE IT!

And my bf is also the one that takes my blog photo and he actually is not a fan of photography so I always need to beg him to adn check right away if its good enough otherwise I end up like the bowling picture girl!! hahaha

Catita said...

oh yeah and I almost forgot about your upcoming trip to Cinque Terre! It's wonderful, they have 5 little coastal villages all connected by train and you can do different walking paths. And enjoy time with the family, that is the best!

Those mountains are so beautiful.
Ah, you must have had a grand time up there, so close to the heavens.
Switzerland is always so crisp and mountaineous. Enjoy the Sunday;-)

OHMYGOSH I KNOW. that video makes me SO HAPPY!!! its a feel-good video

that bridge is the bridge of my dreams. ADRENALINE JUNKIE!!! (unless it makes me motion sick -- which is bascially anything like a rollercoster and i cant go on planes w/o dramamine-- or if i chicken out. free falling would be somthing i wouldn't do. yea, i pretty much hate amusement parks) but hell yes to that bridge of parasailing!!!!!!!! haha.

oh my that illustrated diary thing was REALLY entertaining.
And the picture of the woman "bowling" that her husband took made me laugh out loud. it was HILARIOUS!!!

PursuitOfLLT said...

the bus sign thing totally creeps me out because I just put together supplies to make this chicago centric canvas thing. am going to blog about it so when I make it and document it/blog about it, I'll let you know!
