I had been feeling a little glum lately – I think a combination of missing the U.S., friends, Gabe, and a little cabin fever from the rain and surgery recovery. So, S invited me to join her, T and her two guests on an outing to Neuchâtel last Friday.
I’d heard it was a neat Swiss town so was excited for a chance to see it. Traveling with S is like having a personal tour guide. She has an amazing knack for history and even better, the retention and relation of this knowledge. I love the history, just can’t remember it and relate it all. So, as we walked the colorful streets, she pointed out a neat things to take note of (you can learn more about these on her blog).
As we walked, I just enjoyed the sunshine. It hasn’t been too frequent lately so it was glorious to soak in the rays and even remove my jacket partway through the day. Don’t you just love the puffy white clouds in the blue Swiss sky?
We concluded our walking tour of Neuchâtel with a picnic on the lake, all sharing things we brought along, before heading to 3 more interesting stops on the eastern side of Switzerland.
Thanks to S and Neuchâtel for the beautiful day.
