The first of the summer visitors!

Last week I had the first visitors of the summer when some cousins came to N.E. Switzerland for a few days. It was their first time in the area, so I showed them all the best sights. Here are some snaps from our tours:


First of all, I met them in Zürich, where you could almost see snowy mountains in the distance.


We had a good wander round the old town, too.

Then it was back to the border region where I live – we went across to Germany on the ferry.


Bye bye Romanshorn…


…hello Friedreichshafen!

And of course we had to go for a walk in the woods by my flat.

I’d like to thank my cousin for the photos in this blog post – and now I’m looking forward to the next visitors. Watch this space!

  2. Lovely, lovely photos, and such a sense of history in the landscape. And how cool that you can get to Germany via the ferry (!!). Glad you had a great visit with your cousin. P.S. I love when we have visitors here in Alaska. It gives us the much-needed opportunity to see the mountains and inlet from a fresh perspective. Cheers and have a great week.

      It’s an interesting place – I can stand here in my flat in Switzerland, look out one window and see Austria (on a clear day) then without taking a step look out another window and see Germany (in winter when the trees are bare). 🙂
