Scenes from Europe – Part One – Switzerland & a French Farmer’s Market

A few years back, I was lucky enough to take the most amazing trip to Europe with Spence. It was one of those “bucket list” trips for me. Not Spence’s first trip there, he was in charge of making decisions about how I should experience it  – and he did not disappoint. It truly was the trip of a lifetime and I long to return there, frequently (and wistfully) scrolling through some of the 2000+ pictures I took.  It occurred to me that I’ve only featured a few of them in the blog to date.  Here are some of my favorites……encompassing scenes from Switzerland and a French Farmer’s Market.

I hope you enjoy them – stay tuned for more favorite photos from this trip in future posts….

Scenes from Europe – Lake Geneva, after dark

For those who saw my earlier post featuring the fondue recipe and story of the “underground” fondue restaurant may recall that Spence and I spent time in Switzerland some years back.  To reach this spot, my cousin Kristin, Spence and I walked out on a pier where we dined surrounded by the beauty of Lake Geneva after dark.

Not a professional photographer but armed with my trusty Nikon Coolpix, I was captivated by the reflections of the city lights in the inky water around us.  The result is less perfection and more “artsy-fartsy” but not unlike my post “Tunnel Travel” (same trip) I have re-evaluated and find these both interesting and pleasing.  The memories of this trip are forever etched in my mind.
