Image of the Week, 5-14-14

Wednesdays Image of the Week - Fossil. Taken this past summer in Switzerland this view from the top of Mt. Pilatus overlooks the Swiss Alps. The trip to the top can be made by aerial gondola or the worlds steepest cogwheel train. We took the gondola on the way up and the cogwheel train to get down. There's a hotel and visitor center with restaurants and gift shops but the best part is obviously the views and trails you can walk once you are there.

Day Trips

One of the best things about Europe is that you can take 1 or 2 day trips and go to several countries. Took a day trip from Italy to Switzerland today and went to Zermatt where we saw Disney Europe ;)

The drive to get there wasn't bad either.

Planes, Automobiles and Toddler.

Lesson #1 - don't expect to get much work done if you bring a 20 month old toddler. We've been traveling for almost 2 weeks now and it's been great but my high hopes of being able to post images and write about them as we go along has proven difficult. We have been in Italy where we visited with many relatives and on Friday night we arrived in Dubai. More to come but here is a picture I took about a week ago in Lucca, Italy - It rained most of the day but it made for great reflections at night.
