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.
One 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):
Before we got to their house, Barbara showed me this Roman amphitheatre in the town of Avenches.
We then made a stop at an old WWI bunker that was very close to their house.
I 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…
…and pan fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and veggies.
I 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. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed my recap posts on my trip to Switzerland! If you missed the first two, here they are:

Have a happy Sunday!
I enjoy this series so much! Thanks!
That Roman amphitheater is mesmerizing!
I’m glad you’re having a wonderful time.
