Swiss Alps (1)
In Switzerland I really got time to get to know my fellow travelers. Here are a few snapshots, more to follow .
If you have been on a Rick Steves Tour you know they assign a buddy so you don't miss the bus. To the right was my buddy Sharon with her husband Tom. They live in Florida but her daughter is about 30 miles from me in Los Angeles...We have already seen each other since the trip and e mail regularly. Sharon protects sea turtles and is a fellow artist, a free spirit and a lot of fun!!!
Mary Beth and Sue, ask them about their adventure on the funicular in Salzburg (it got stuck).
Here are Carol and Joyce .
Meet Luann and Steve. While we walked, he stayed in the back making sure we all stayed together......what a guy!
Shelly and Karen are mother and daughter. Shelly works in Afganistan and sent us an arial picture upon her return. I think of her often.
Diane, Toni, Tim and Janice. Tim enjoys photography as much as I do!
Janet, another Joan!!, Diane, Janice (both avid skiers) and me.
Our group in Kleine Scheidegg. Below was our transportation up the mountain.
I could not believe this. The Alps and a Saint Bernard!
To the right is your other form of transportation, a large cable car. You are way up there!!
This was our hotel in Murren. Since we are in Switzerland cheese fondue is a must. We shared it at dinner one night and was it delicious. We were serenaded by cow bells from morning until night. I loved it.
We were entertained at dinner by musicians playing the accordian and alphorn. We got to create music ourself on the horn. That was great fun. Toni was pretty good!
