While in Meiringen, we saw a farmer chasing his cows down the
Bahnhofstrasse, the cows had escaped from the nearby pasture.
The cars had stopped and everyone waited patiently while the farmer
herded them in to the barn. I even had a chance to take a picture of
this fun incident.

Switzerland 2008 Trip Log Part Four

September 6 Lydia and Ernst invited us to have dinner with them this evening. We attend Mass here in Meiringen on Saturday at 6:00 p.m. We thanked Lydia and told her we would be happy to have dinner with she and Ernst after church. We told them we would bring wine and beer. After Mass we joined Lydia and Ernst for dinner. I set the dinning room table while Ernst opened the bottle of wine. Lydia cooked a delicious meal of baked pork cutlets,… Continue

Switzerland 2008 Trip Log Part Three

September 1st we started out early in the morning; our destination was Stein am Rhein. We took the train to Luzern, then Zurich and Winterthur and finally Stein am Rhein. Once in Stein am Rhein, we took the one hour cruise to Schaffhausen. We showed our Swiss Pass and the cruise was free. A great day for a cruise! We met a young woman with her two young sons from German. We enjoyed eating our picnic lunch as we rode along the water way. An hour later we arrived in… Continue

Switzerland 2008 Trip Log Part Two

August 29th We planned to visit Hug Biscuit and Cookie Company, we took the train to Luzern, changed trains to Willisau. We could not find a bus to take us to the company. However, as we looked around the train station, a woman walked towards us. She noticed we looked "lost" and in need of help. She was right. She was seeing her son off on the train. We looked puzzled, and we asked her about the Cookie/Biscuit company. She offered to drive us to the company, a short distance from the… Continue

Switzerland 2008 Trip Log Part One

August 24, 2008 we left Logan Airport on Swiss Air for our 4th trip to Switzerland. Our flight left at 9:45 p.m. and we arrived in Switzerland at 11:30 a.m. This was a direct flight to Zurich. Dinner was served; later overhead lights dimmed and the movie started. People settled down, some tried to sleep or read. Others talked among themselves. Before you knew it, the main cabin lights came back on, and we smelled fresh brewed coffee. Ah, ah, breakfast was being served.

August… Continue

Italy Trip Log 2002 Part Two

Saturday, September 14th The four of us, Helen, Al, Fred and Jean, took the train from Verona to Venice. The train ride took 1 1/2 hours to reach Venice. We had purchased day tickets for 9.80 euros, each way, each person. We rode on a huge vaporette, filled with many people. We arrived in Venice at 11:15 a.m. Venice was such an impressive sight, gondolas and water taxi on the Grand Canal. The waterway was filled with all types of boats. Throngs of people were at the… Continue

Hi Jean and Fred: Yes, we hope to get to Switzerland again. My wife's father was born there. We visited about 15 years ago and found church records documenting his birth! It is a beautiful country. My father-in-law was from Apenzell (not sure of the spelling). We stayed in some wonderful B&Bs while there. Thanks for your comment. Hank

I just looked at all your photos. Nice. I see you like to take photos of lots of kids too. This is a fun new toy. Thanks for asking. I always wanted to meet the Bruggers, after your description of them. We were lucky enough to have had some great hosts in Austria, the
Spitzers .

Thank you for your comments about the Hal Taussig TV event. All this is so exciting. I finally got my wish...meeting Hal Taussig in person.

Thank you from me, too for your comments about Hal Taussig's TV event. We've heard so many good things about him and Norma that we felt so honored to be able to meet and chat with them and their family. Our day in Media was outstanding, as well, because we finally had an opportunity to meet with the Untours Staff. What a family group! We can understand why they love working and doing what they do. No wonder we love our Untours trips. They help to make it so!

Thanks for your comments on the blog. That makes me feel good to know that people are enjoying what I am writing. We had a wonderful time in Spain - and on all our Untours. Hope you get to go to Spain.

Hi Jean, I love to go to Meiringen several times during our Untour, the large Migros and the fabulous Eisenwaren!!! Not to mention all the lovely trips that start there. Up to the Rosenlaui Hotel for the salami sandwiches and cantaloupe.
