The Hills Are Alive!

0 Flares 0 Flares ×


Clark Kent and I are back from our holiday in Switzerland where we hung out with some gorgeous cows, caught up with the Rass family, hit the skies for some ace mountain views and gained about 10 pounds each eating chocolate and cheese (CK – I ate pommes frites).  MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

Our base of operations was an apartment in Interlaken…

No worries…its only 4000 feet up.

The main purpose of the trip was my step-father’s family reunion but as you can see above, we managed to squeeze in some other activities. My mom (who is moving pretty swiftly for a woman who broke both knees just four months ago) ordered party platters and had t-shirts made. Everyone had a blast.

There was also a grill fest at the family caravans in Faulensee.

In addition to great home-cooked noms, you pretty much can’t find a bad restaurant in Switzerland.

Schnitzel! Rugenbräu! Hirschpfeffer! Hazelnut Ice Cream!
Mmm…meat & cheese
The view was usually as good as the food
We branched out as well, making sure to include day trips to Bern and Zurich.
Prepare for the wurst!
And great googly moogly…the chocolate!

All in all, CK and I had a pretty fantastic trip.  If food is your thing (and I know it is otherwise you wouldn’t be here) we highly recommend you go ahead and book your flights to Switzerland.
