In the spirit of my blog post after our trip to Iceland, I give you one photo a day of our journey in the Alps...
|In the evening, The Eiger from our porch. It pretty much rained the whole time we were in Mürren (which means we have to go back!) but the clouds cleared just long enough for me to get this shot with my phone.|
Day 3: Driving to Ascona in Ticino... the little town of Visp had the best roofs! I fell in love with roofs, and shutters, and doors on this trip in a way I didn't know was possible.
Maso Carpene for our stay, the hosts, David and Claudia are dear new friends... and Claudia's food was AMAZING! The View:
|The shutters.... faux painters "try" to get walls to look like this!|
|In the castle privy!|
No photos from this day... but the driving was glorious! (And fast and twisty, my honey does love a good mountain pass)
Day 12: Zurich
And GAH, no photos from today, it was rainy and I left my "camera" at home. We did go to a great old Button shop, called Keck.
Day 13: Zurich.. the last day. Oh my, what memories were made this last day in Switzerland. I met up with Coralie (from Geneva) and Fides and Gabby (who live in Heitzl, just outside Zurich) for an epic day. Coralie is an active member of my Ravelry group and The M-Club, and Fides and Gaby own a new Swiss yarn company called Siidegarte.
We started with lunch at Hiltl the world's oldest vegetarian restaurant (really good!), and then walked and talked and browsed (and went yarn shopping)... then we went to Sprungli for coffee and sweets.
|I stole this photo from Fide's Instagram feed, as it catches how fun the day was!|
|The view from Gaby's house at sunset, their town, Hirzl is the town Johanna Spyri, the author of Heidi, was born in.|
|Coralie, working on her Magmatic MKAL.|
Day 14: HOME!
