Because the weather continues to be low cloud with drizzle, we thought it best to head to somewhere out of the mountains. We knew that Fribourg was an ancient town that we hadn’t visited so took the train from Grindelwald/Interlaken/Bern/Fribourg – a 2 hour trip which isn’t bad considering the train changes. Bern Bahnhoff was the usual chaos that we remember – people everywhere finding their connecting trains. We called at the Visitor Centre in Fribourg and picked up a walking guide which would take us through the main part of the city and into the old town then steeply down to the river. This city is a perfect example of a medieval town built in the 1200’s and added to in the 1500’s. The Old Town has many churches and fountains, monasteries, beautifully restored buildings ... read more

Today I started having mountain fever and decided to go on my own adventure. I got in my little manual car and headed down to Lake Neuchatel. I needed some time at the beach, swimming in real water, not hot springs. Lake Neuchatel is the only lake in Switzerland that is completely in Switzerland. I ended up in the medieval village of Estavayer-le-lac ... knicknamed "City of the Rose". The beach and the lake were incredible ... I was surrounded by murmuring french and spent the afternoon watching children trampolining into the water. I wandered around Estavayer, which was completely charming. I ended up in an old fortress ... the odd part was I was the only person around! I suppose they were all at the beach. The town is known for it's frogs ... yes, ... read more

En url= seguimos con más encuentros familiares. Andrea es prima de Mariela y hace unos años se casó con Philipe, que es suizo. Actualmente viven en Basilea, pero estaban visitando a unos amigos en url= ese fin de semana. Tienen 3 hijos. Uno en camino (ya llega en Noviembre!) y 2 que caminan en 4 patas y ladran. Pepe y Santi, al igual que yo, les tenemos mucho respeto (por no decir cagazo) a los pichichos, así que estuvimos un buen rato hasta que se acostumbraron a la convivencia canina. Nos encontramos con los amigos de los chicos en la estación de trenes y, como ya era el mediodía, nos fuimos a comer unas pizzas. Fuimos a url... read more

Conozco a Mariela y su familia desde hace 10 años. Y una de las cosas que siempre quise vivir son las visitas a los familiares que viven en el exterior. Cuentan que la pasan tan bien cada vez que van a Suiza o El Líbano, que dan ganas de ir. Parte de este viaje era conocer, pero también ir a compartir unos días en familia. En url= nos recibieron Salwa, Manolo, Nathalie, Stefan e Idam. Salwa es la prima de mi suegro Andrés y vive en Suiza desde hace mucho tiempo. Nos invitaron a quedarnos en su casa, que es un hermoso departamento en las afueras de url= Nos han recibido de una manera tan cálida que no alcanzan las palabras para des... read more

Zurich HB station was filled with gigantic life-size blowups of Switzerland’s soccer players. It reminded me of the fanfare at Indian cricket matches. Spanish girl decided to ride with us on the train to Fribourg, and get down at Berne. The train stopped at Berne, the capital of Switzerland and Spanish girl got out, while we gazed out into the city as the train scurried past. Berne was crammed onto a steep-sided peninsula in the crook of the River Aare. We saw cobbled lanes, lined with sandstone arcaded ancient buildings, modern shop signs and a few tiny cars and a tram rattling past. The views, both of the Old Town’s clustered roofs and of the majestic Alps on the horizon, was breathtaking. Zurich to Fribourg by train was 1.5 hours and we reached at 9:30 am. ... read more

It's the weekend and time for a roadtrip with Bryan and Cheryl! We chose the French area of Switzerland, specifically Montreux at the East end of Lac Lemac (Geneva sits at the West end of the lake). Along the way we stopped in Fribourg for some lunch. After searching for quite a while for the best place to eat, we settled on a pizza/pasta restaurant. Afterwards, we spotted a nice little bakery for dessert with lovely pastries and hot chocolate, bien sur! We love that in Europe you can take your dog anywhere. We were tickled to meet a little dog at the table next door with the oh-so-perfect name of Chanel! We decided to check out the Cathedral of St. Nicholas, first built in 1283, after lunch. You can pay to visit the top of ... read more
