Switzerland Adventure, Day 1

Here we are!

We are here!


After a full day of travel we arrived in Bern, Switzerland and we are as happy as can be.


Little bus from our house to city square.

Big bus from Zhitomir to Kiev.

Metro to big train station.

Bus from train station to airport.

Direct flight from Kiev to Zurich. Woohoo!

Train from Zurich to Bern.

Walk from train station to lodging. YAY!


I'm sleepy and tomorrow is a big day, so I'll just share some pics and call it good. Mmmk?

At the metro in Kiev, feelin' fresh.


On the bus to the airport.

Santa at the airport! I tell ya, Christmas is still going in Ukraine. You can hear Christmas music in all the stores STILL! I was made for Ukraine.

We arrived in Bern! Jed loves this chair. He hasn't even let me sit in it yet.

We walked around in the rain tonight and it was beautiful.

I'm a sucker for twinkle lights. We had dinner down this street at a restaurant that serves traditional Swiss food. Yes please!

The prettiest bottle of water I ever sipped.

This was AMAZING. It was leeks, cream, sausage, and potatoes. Shut the front door.

That's a big ol' bowl of fondue!

Fondue. Again, shut the front door.

Dippage for the fondue.

Window shopping for chocolate. Look at that! Outrageous!

This makes me laugh. I was positively giddy about my coffee! HA!

Tomorrow we hit the consulate bright and early. I hope we can update again tomorrow evening with visas in hand! Pray with us pretty please?
Good night! 🙂

    Jed’s slippers take me back more than 30 years to the ones I picked up (and brought back as gifts) from a little store in Vienna called “Bippa’s”. So European! 🙂 BTW, Happy Birthday Jed!
