The bells! The bells!

I took a video in Prague of the old town and the bells and trumpet player, but it is too long to put on Flickr, so I can't embed it on my blog. If you click this link, you will be able to see it:

I wanted to capture the fact that Prague is not only a feast for the eyes, but also for the ears!

Hiking the Toblerone Trail

No, this is not a trail of chocolate. It is, however, a hiking trail that goes along a defensive line that the Swiss set up during WWII using "dragon's teeth" which look like pieces of the chocolate.

Choosing the path less traveled.

A bunker using trompe l'oil to make it look like a house.

Two Things Challenge: Value/Abstract

Squash at Schilliger's in Gland, Switzerland. I'm sure it is a good value!

The Garden Store

We went to Schilliger in Gland, Switzerland the other day and they had out all this picturesque squash. I couldn't help but snap a couple of shots. Charlie can only come in the store if he rides in style!

We went for a walk in the Versoix forest and were surprised to come out of it onto this meadow where people were playing Polo!

Chamonix, France

We finally made it up to Chamonix for an afternoon with our friends. We found the town underwhelming. Next time we must go up one of the gondolas and perhaps go for a hike. I think that is where the attraction of this area lies!

Prague XI: Novomestsky Pivovar

We met a relative of mine at this brewery/restaurant for lunch before flying back to Geneva. Good food and good company! If I hadn't been trying to get over a cold and about to get on a plane, I would have also enjoyed the good beer!

Prague VIII: River Garden

There are so many beautiful gardens in Prague. Janet and I decided that next time we go, we should bring our Kindles and do a "Parking through Prague" series where we read in the parks.
