(Erin here.) Even for the four of us who have done a fair amount of traveling, today broke all of our personal records. We flew from Boise to Chicago, where we were supposed to board a plane to Toronto, but that flight was delayed so many times, we missed the chance for our connection to Geneva. Aaron and Sean worked with our new friend Ritu at the United ticket counter to get a new connection through Madrid so we could still be to Geneva at a decent time. After the shortest night ever while in flight (whenever you travel east), we landed in Madrid in time to see the sunrise over the beautiful arid Spanish countryside. Then it was onto Geneva where we boarded a train for an hour, followed by three windy bus rides to get us to the quintessential Swiss village of Champex-Lac. The lake is a lovely green jewel surrounded by soaring mountains. All in all, we had been in motion in one mode of transportation or another for 28 hours. Whew! We were so happy to hit the pillow that night. When I awoke wide awake at 3:00 a.m., the sky through our open window was filled with dazzling stars.
We love traveling. And our golden dog, Winnie. And each other.
This is the place where we share stories about all of the above!
