We spent almost all of May visiting our daughter and her family in Switzerland. She tends to have a lot of business related travel around this time of year and my wife usually goes over for a few weeks to help out with the kids while she’s away. I usually stay behind to look after the houses and the animals. This time, however, I decided to go too. There were a few reasons for this. First the grandkids were growing up quickly, particularly the younger one. The last time I saw her in person was in 2014. At that time she was still a baby. Now she’s a little girl and I’ve missed a lot of it. Second I hadn’t had a vacation since we last went to Geneva in 2011 and I had an urge to be back in Europe for a bit. I’ll keep the third reason for a later post.
Here’s a shot of our plane taken from the terminal as we were waiting to board. I wanted travel light so I only took my Sony RX100 M3. Most of the pictures taken during our visit were from this camera although a few were taken with iphones and at one point I borrowed my son-in-law’s Nikon D80. I knew he had one and I had a yen to try a digital Nikon.
