The Bernina Express, Switzerland

Sunday Photo – The Bernina Express, Switzerland

I love this photo taken from the Bernina Express in Switzerland. The wide open spaces and the feeling of adventure are things we have really missed these past few months and desperately hope will be attainable again soon.

Zurich, Switzerland

Sunday Photos – Zurich, Switzerland

I have been to Switzerland’s largest city twice – once by train from Zermatt and this year in February, my last overseas leisure trip of 2020, where we took a train towards Liechtenstein.

The Matterhorn, Zermatt, Switzerland

Friday Photo – The Matterhorn, Zermatt, Switzerland

Zermatt was the penultimate destination on my 2016 tour of Italy & Switzerland.

A Weekend in Liechtenstein

Being a typical male I have the ‘completion’ gene ingrained within me. It was pretty much for that reason alone that Mrs Wilbur, Hamish & I travelled to Liechtenstein during the first weekend in February. This now leaves me with Andorra, Malta & San Marino for a European nation clean sweep. I have also visited […]

The Bernina Express, Switzerland

Monday Morning Blues – Bernina Express, Switzerland

Today’s Monday morning blues picture comes from a fabulous train tour of Italy & Switzerland that I stitched together in 2016. The Bernina Express travelled from Tirano on the Swiss/Italian border up to Chur. A fabulous memory and the perfect antidote for a miserable Monday morning.

Wordless Wednesday – The Stork Hôtel, Zurich

Monday Morning Blues – Zürichsee, Switzerland

Today’s photo to beat the Monday morning blues comes from this weekend. It’s taken from the train as we travelled from Zurich to Sargans en-route to Liechtenstein.
