Solo Travel - day one

 Day one has been kind to me.  I Wandered down the streets of Switzerland's Capital - Bern, enjoyed a long lunch, bought a book - One Day  (none of the ones recommended to me were at the tiny book store), went to see where einstein created his theory of relativity, hit up some shops, and checked out their downtown market.  All in all - a nice day of solo traveling.

bern has a beautiful landscape.  

and some pretty buildings

long streets

a lovely old clock

on my want list

aren't these vintage books so adorable?
i bought a few.  they were only a franc!

did some strolling

walked up the same steps as Einstein

turns out, they had very good taste.

also turns out that Einstein was such a devoted husband.

melts my heart.

so buzzzzy pollenating

hope you all have a great weekend!  

I'm headed to the Alps.
