Traveling Thursday --- Switzerland

One of Mama's first cousins and her husband have retired and live in Switzerland....about an hour from Geneva. They are both vets....mama can't spell the entire word correctly...veteraniarians????? Well, you know what we mean!!!!!

Jean-Pierre was born and raised in Switzerland, but did live in the States for several years.  Ironically he was raised in the same Swiss village as our maternal ancestors resided in many, many, many years ago....and his uncle still lives in the house he was raised in!!!!! Small world, eh???????

Today we will share a few pictures that were taken when mama last visited them......and we hope you will enjoy them....if so, we will show other pictures that mama has taken in Switzerland, France and Ireland....she has tons and tons of pictures!!!!!!!!

Happy Thursday, sweeties, enjoy the Alps and Lake Geneva with us....clicking on pictures should bigify them. 

*mama's cousin and husband*


*heading to Leukerbad, and the mineral spas, from Geneva...Lake Geneva is on the right but not visible in this picture*


*in the last three pictures you can see Lake Geneva*





We purr that you will enjoy this brief tour......we would love to continue sharing these European pictures if they are of interest to you.....please let us know.

Purrs and Love,

SAS....Sammy Andy Shelly....and our Mama

YES! Please keep sharing the pictures! My mom loves to travel - though she hasn't gone to all the places you have gone! Papa's grandmother was born in Italy and a few years ago (before my little sister was born) they went to the town where she was born! They loved it and hope to go back some day!

Your pal, Pip

Mr. Pip said...

P.S.: these pictures are beautiful! Looks like a little piece of heaven!

Our Mom loves it when friends share their international pictures. Mom has seen a lot of the US, but nothing of the rest of the world.
