Switzerland, Part 3

Hello everyone! How has your weekend been? Relaxing, I hope!

Again, I’m so glad you all are enjoying my recaps of my trip to Switzerland! It’s so much fun for me to relive the trip and read your comments. :-) And now, for the last installment…

The way back to the house (I was staying with a family friend, Barbara, and her sons) was rainy but still gorgeous.

P1060591P1060594P1060598One thing that I love about Europe is that it’s so OLD. There’s evidence of it’s age everywhere, like these ruins that we spotted from the highway (or autobahn, as I think it’s called there):

P1060595Before we got to their house, Barbara showed me this Roman amphitheatre in the town of Avenches.

P1060605P1060606How cool is that?

P1060611We then made a stop at an old WWI bunker that was very close to their house.

P1060615P1060614P1060619P1060616I love those little hidden gems of history.

Now, because this is a food blog  (well, partially at least ;-) ) I can’t let this dinner go unnoticed.

An escarole salad…

P1060623I often say that the simple dinners are the best, and this one was just so amazing! Barbara is a fantastic cook. I sure was spoiled while there!

For dessert, we had raspberries and cream. Yum!

Barbara also got me a box of Swiss chocolates, which I snacked on through the rest of the days I was abroad.

The next morning, Barbara drove me back to the train station. I had such an amazing visit with her and her family, and I hope it isn’t ten years before we see each other again! ;-)

Such lovely views on the train back to Geneva…

Switzerland was just an amazing country. The people there were very nice and helpful (especially considering I didn’t speak either German or French), the scenery was too beautiful for words, and the food was delicious! I definitely want to get back there again some day, maybe for a longer stay next time. :-)

Switzerland from the sky…

In what seemed like no time, I was flying over London!

It was nice to be back in the city. :-)
