We are going on our hols tomorrow, Sunday, we are all packed up and now just have to wait for morning to come, hopefully the house sitters will make their way through the snow 🙂 We are going on a cruise to Iceland for 12 days, along with all the other hundreds of tourist that visit each year. But even as a small child I have always wanted to visit, because an uncle who was in the Navy, visited Iceland, along with Norway, Sweden and Finland. He sent us postcards, brought back national costume dolls, and then came home and told us tales of his visits to each of these wonderful countries. I have visited Norway and Sweden along with Denmark, yet to visit Finland, but Iceland will come off the list, along with the Faroe Isles……. I am so excited, and reason for this excitement, is I really never thought we would go, my husband hates flying, really hates it and never wants to fly again, hence we travel a lot by car and train. So nearly a year ago, he came home and said he had done something, and just hoped I would like it……he had booked us on a cruise to Iceland for the following year……the year has just flown past and we start with Amsterdam, then to the Faroe Islands, Iceland, then home via Shetland and Orkney, with lots of trips at each stop. Which means tons of photos, fingers crossed, of some very special islands, with lots of churches and lighthouses for my collections.
Anyway back to the main reason for the post, I thought I would try and finish off a trip to Switzerland we made in 2015. I am sorting old photos, to make room for new Icelandic photos 🙂 and came across some Swiss Chalets that I took near and in Interlaken, they are just so beautiful to look at.
