All over the world Bloggers are Blogging and Twitterers are Tweeting so I thought we should try our hand at joining the noise. At least this is a site where we can talk about one of our favorite subjects and leave notes about a trip we are on or some trip in our past.
We are now only 12 days from getting on United flight 936 non-stop from Washington Dulles to Zurich to start our four week stay at Chalet Berit in Sachseln. It will be the usual warm and happy feeling when we step off the train and see Albert Greutert waiting to greet us. But we are also likely to get teary eyed because our beloved Berit will not be with him. This will be the fifth time to stay with them and we have never managed to imagine staying anywhere else, although everyone we meet tells us about their wonderful landlords. So it is obvious that every Untourist has their favorite comfortable Home Town. Ours just happens to be Sachseln.
Our minds have been full of returning to our favorite places on day trips, but perhaps our real favorite activity is sitting on the porch at Chalet Berit looking out over Sachseln and having relaxing chats with Albert (now sadly without Berit), daughter Elisabeth, and Vance (a fellow UT alumnus).
Enough for this first attempt. I will stop with a few pictures from Chalet Berit.
