Postcard from Switzerland

We spent last weekend in Switzerland.  Andy is there quite a lot on business as his company is based there, but it was my first visit since we moved back to Europe last year.

We visited the Maison Cailler chocolate museum / factory at Broc ...

And Gruyère ....

... a picture postcard little town.

We walked round the Schwarzer See near Fribourg listening to the cow bells in the distance!

This dragon was hanging about on one of the rocks!  There was a 'Witches Trail' for kids and I guess this was part of that.

And this little cutie posed for photos while his mates were greedily munching handfuls of grass.

A lovely weekend with fantastic company and food, great views and rather changeable weather (it rained a lot!).


  1. Thank you Fiona for taking us with you to that most beautiful place! x Teje

  2. Beautiful, beautiful!!!! One day I'd like to visit Switzerland... definitely on my Bucket list.

  3. Wow. It's time like this when I really wish that Australia wasn't so far away from Europe. I feel like singing.. the hills are alive with the Sound of Music...

  4. Thank you for sharing these beautiful photos - now for the rest of the day, the following tune will run roit inside my head ... all together now - "High on a hill was a lonely goatherd
    Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo
    Loud was the voice of the lonely goatherd
    Lay ee odl lay ee odl-oo"

  5. A chocolate factory is good, a Swiss chocolate factory is even better! As always, great photos!

  6. Wow! Switzerland for the weekend. I cannot imagine it. Did you buy any yummy chocolate? Great pics!
