Switzerland & Italy (Nordics Part I)

Hello Friends! 

It's time for my annual spring travel to Vaud Switzerland.  

I prefer to stay in Vevey, oh how I love this sweet village, but business had us staying one village to the west.  Montreux is home to the Jazz Festival and was the host to Bill's week long conference.  I will work and explore before we travel to Sweden for the weekend.

Do you remember last fall, when I has a Julie Andrews moment? The Alps are live...  last fall I took the train to Rochers de Naye.  Enjoyed lunch, visited a botanical garden built into the mountatin, and hiked a bit.  This lovely place is just above Montreux, elevation 2000M.  I enjoyed my time up there so much that I couldn't wait to visit.  Delusions of snowshoeing quickly passed when 2.5 feet of fresh snow fell over night.

Getting lost in Italy

It feels like so long ago, but this delightful Sunday happened just a few weeks ago - the day we took a wrong turn and ended up in France!

I have mentioned this before but if you are planning a trip to Switzerland please note that most of the country is closed on Sunday due to labor laws prohibiting work.

This made for the perfect excuse to borrow a friends car, driving from Vevey to Aosta Valley (Italy) via the Great St Bernard Pass.
