    Photo Friday: Swiss Engagement Spot

    Since we just had our one year wedding anniversary, I’m still on a sappy love high and wanted to do a Photo Friday post showcasing the spot where we got engaged. In May 2013, David and I took a trip around Europe. We’d been together for three years at that point, but somehow we had never taken a trip with just the two of us before!

    Photo Friday: Cloud Catcher in Switzerland

    By Alexis If I could afford to spend the rest of my days in Switzerland, I would move there tomorrow without hestiation. It’s such a spectacularly beautiful country.

This photo was snapped in the mountains near Interlaken while David was off being brave (i.e. bungee-jumping into a canyon) while I was off being an introvert, quietly taking…

    By Alexis I’ve flown on a lot of airplanes in my life…when I was younger, I would fly back and forth between Las Vegas, Nevada (where my dad lives) and Salt Lake City, Utah (where my mom lives) with my siblings twice a month. By age 13, that routine meant I had taken hundreds of flights and gazed out countless airplane windows. Now, flying over the American west is beautiful in it’s own right (I’ll always maintain Vegas…

    Photo Friday: Interlaken, Switzerland Panorama

    By Alexis Ah, Switzerland. If you forced me to pick my favorite place on earth, Switzerland would probably be it. It has the most spectacular mountains, lakes, architecture, everything. I just love it. With that in mind, I wanted to use this photo to kick off my new weekly “Photo Friday” series, where I will be highlighting my favorite photos from our adventures around the world. Interlaken, which means “between lakes,” is a perfect little Swiss town situated…
