Links & Things/Swiss Sundays...

Friday, September 24, 2010


I'm all packed and ready to visit London for my first time! I've written down all of your suggestions (huge thanks) and will report back on Tuesday!  The Great Gorilla Run is on Sunday...we'll see how that goes =) Maybe I'll be back with a gorilla picture or 2...or maybe I should be asking how much monies you'd pay to see them ;)
Ok, now I just have to get on the airplane...fun fact - I'm terrified of them, my stomach and heart already feel tight :(
But anyway, here's a 'swiss sunday-but-on-friday' picture that I had to take when I saw this scooter in Zurich the other day - I'd love to see who is driving that around!

*I like the internets*
And way special thanks' to
Bella Gets Real
Selma, Crazy Little World of Mine
Cocktails & Orgies
Tragic Fairy Tales
for the awesome blog awards while I was away =) Thanks!

Mia Delessi said...

Don't worry about the airplane. I usually sleep during the trips, you should try to do the same.
If you are really afraid just don't look through the window, pretend that you are on a bus or something.
Have fun in London.
