From the Swiss Alps




Our last three days in Europe were spent in Zurich, where we were lucky to experience a ride to the top of Mount Titlis. We were so fortunate to wake to a glorious day and the views from the summit were spectacular

This picture reminds me so much of the book "Heidi" that I read as a child, actually the beautiful little villages near to the mountain were exactly as I had imagined them to be, all those years ago.
without the tall apartment buildings of course!
We had a delicious Italian meal here . My choice was a plate of mushrooms with a side dish of saffron rissotto. The flavours were exquisite.
