Scenes of Switzerland from the car ...

We normally take the train in Switzerland.  But JB arranged for us to have a car for yesterdays adventure.  It gave me a chance to roll down the window and take a few pictures of my beloved Schweiz.
 Often times in Switzerland you really feel like you need a good pinch - because it does not seem real!
 This country is a fairy tale.  Its landscape so varied!  One minute you see rolling green hills, the next snow capped alps, then sunshine dancing off lakes, cascading waterfalls and eventually palm trees!  
This country never fails to take my breath away.
So I thought I'd share a few photos that I took yesterday while riding in the car rolling down the window.

If you're thinking of going to Europe.
Don't pass up Switzerland!

  9. You are so lucky! I spend a few weeks in Switzerland in 2008, and I've never been anywhere as beautiful since. Geneva is probably one of my favorite cities: so clean, crisp, historical, and magical. Love your pictures!
