When we travelled on the train up inside the Jungfrau, in the Swiss Alps, in 2015, they stop the train at a couple of places. Everyone tumbles off and heads for the light, there are large windows that allow you an amazing view of the mountains. More to follow.
In 2015 we went the Top of Europe , The Jungfrau, in the Swiss Alps, in fact we went in 2016, but we don’t talk about that trip, as it was a white out, we didn’t see a thing. In 2015 we did, the weather was perfect, I have posted a little about the trip, but not any main posts. As I’m into my third week with the cold from hell, I want to blog about something that will cheer me up and make me feel ……sorry…Christmassy, So for a few days, I will be re-visiting the top of the world again. By the way, the photo is me, gazing out into wonderland.
Florence 2016 – When we left the Pitti Palace, we wanted to see Florence’s Cathedral, the Duomo, before we had to catch our train back to Venice. Many of the photos have been posted before as single posts, but I wanted to add them all together, the photos of The Piazza della Signoria with a copy of Michelangelo’s David are new photos. We didn’t have time to see the real David, but maybe next time. Next and last stop is the Duomo.
Last year 2016, on our way back from Venice, we stopped over night in Zurich. I was really looking forward to taking some photos of the old part of Zurich. We got up early and went straight out……..into really thick mist……I was so disappointed. It had been years since I last visited Zurich, so I was not going to be thwarted by a bit or rather a lot of mist. We made do with a walk around the hotel, along the river into a riverside park, found a castle like building and a wonderful penknife shop……so not too bad for a misty morning.
We went to see a AC/DC concert in July 2015, I just cannot believe it was that long ago. There was one photo I took that I really liked, but then lost it, but now I have found it…… the plus side of sorting photos 🙂 It was a wonderful concert, I couldn’t hear for a week, always a good sign 🙂
On one of our forays into a garden centre, we walk through the pet department and I spied Polly. Out came the camera and I could not resist the urge to take some Polly photos. It’s not something I normally do, but I did enjoy taking them and Polly didn’t seem to mind.
