S: Our Switzerland Adventures
1: The fun begins! On June 13th, 2011. Sarah and Amy flew to Switzerland with Jennie to begin our big European Adventure! Jen and Aaron had flown over to the U.S. from their home in Switzerland, to attend Sarah's graduation and open house. Sarah's graduation gift from them was a trip to Europe, and Amy could go too!!
2: Aww.... Saying goodbye was hard, but we knew we would be constantly staying in touch via Facebook, Skype, texting, etc...
3: Look! They really do like each other!
4: And away we go!!!
6: Amy - "I'm exhausted, but I'm still smiling!"
7: We have arrived!! Why does Sarah look all rested and chipper and Amy looks all tired and worn out?? Must be the difference of what 14 hours of traveling does to a 40 year old body and a 17 year old body!
8: Montreux, Switzerland. The stunning view from Aaron and Jen's balcony. Montreux is right on Lake Geneva and across the lake is France.
10: Just as stunning at night..
13: Our first adventure in Europe was a day trip to a cute little Swiss town, Gruyere. It had alot of little shops to look in, beautiful flowers everywhere, and a castle to tour. We had alot of fun that day!
15: A trio of pretty "Swiss Misses"
19: Sarah, the Princess, finally found her castle!
22: A Gruyere specialty~ double cream, berries and a meringue. Very delicious!
23: The beautiful Swiss countryside
25: One Friday night, we went to a nearby town, Vevey, for dinner. The town was alot like Montreaux. We had a great dinner and a fun evening!
26: We took a day trip to Bern. This was a little village on the way to Bern. It had some cute swiss chalets and a neat old church that we explored.
32: The Beautiful Flower Market in Bern!
34: All four of us, Aaron, Jen, Sarah and Amy, got really brave and decided we would go Paragliding!! We researched it online and decided that the best place to go would be in a town called Interlaken. It was one of the most thrilling things we have ever done! We all were a little nervous at first, but when we were in the air, it just felt like we were floating. It was awesome! Because this was Sarah's special trip, Aaron and Jen paid the 40 Francs to get her pictures taken while she was in the air.
