Traveling in Style

We left the lovely Alps and headed to the Alsace in France. This is the homemade bed we rigged up for Charlie so he could be comfortable and still see out the window.

Worked up an Appetite

After going up the Schilthorn, we had dinner at the Hotel Oberland in Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland. This is their cute cow logo.

The pizza was OK, but their Wienerschnitzel is the best!

They were very sweet and actually made us a dessert to order! It is made with Limoncello and lemon sorbet.

Mürren, Switzerland

We stopped in Mürren for lunch on our way down from the Schilthorn and enjoyed the view of the Alps and paragliders. You cannot get to this town by car. You must hike or take the gondolas.

On the way back down the gondolas, we spotted several Ibexes. It was exciting to see them even if they were far away!

My friend looks at the view from the gondola.

Bond Coffee
We ate some ice-cream and had coffee in the revolving restaurant at the top of the Schilthorn (the Piz Gloria). This place was built for the James Bond movie, On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

Bond Coffee with Swiss Sugar.

The ice-cream was quite good!

Posing on top of the World

The Model Dog
At the top of the Schilthorn, Switzerland. My models.

Crazy skiers!
Crazy Skiers!

Crazy skiers!

Charlie tries to find a pee spot. A daunting task! Also, I'm sure he had never seen snow before!

Still looking!

As we drive away, I take a few more shots.
