The Matterhorn, Zermatt, Switzerland

A-Z April Challenge – Z Is For Zermatt In Switzerland

So after 25 posts in 29 days I come to the end of my fourth A-Z April Challenge. Guess what? I need a rest from writing, so here is a picture of the Matterhorn, the majestic mountain that looms large over the Swiss ski resort, a bird of prey and a precipitous bridge just outside […]

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.

2020 Over, 2021 Beckons (what I did and what I hope to do)

This is a far briefer post than I could have imagined 12-months ago. I had some grand plans……. In September I should have been fulfilling a lifetime’s ambition to travel on the Trans-Siberian railway from St Petersburg to Moscow and on to Mongolia & China. The booking has been shunted to 2021 but I will […]

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. Zurich is a fine city served by a mammoth train station and busy airport. It screams money at you and like all […]

Friday Photo – The Matterhorn, Zermatt, Switzerland

Zermatt was the penultimate destination on my 2016 tour of Italy & Switzerland. It was June 2016 and we arrived in lovely sunshine – just as well as next day it rained constantly meaning that we aborted our plans to take a train and cable car high into the mountains. The Matterhorn One of Europe’s […]

Bird of Prey, Zermatt, Switzerland

Thursday Bird #2 – Bird of Prey, Zermatt, Switzerland.

Continuing my series of birds that I have seen onb my travels. I took this shot in June 2016 from my hotel balcony. I was actually looking at the majestic Matterhorn when this beauty caught my eye. I am not sure what is is – any ideas? Look out for the Matterhorn tomorrow.

A-Z April Challenge (Cities Visited) – Z is for Zurich

Well, the April marathon is drawing to a close and before I write about Switzerland’s largest city, let’s have a little recap of A-Y. Aleppo – Syria’s most historic city and an absolute jewel before the conflict Bilbao – Spain’s Basque capital and home to the Guggenheim Museum Cape Town – The beautiful South African […]

Triesenberg Valley View, Liechtenstein

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 […]

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.
