My friend came! My friend came!

Stephanie came to Switzerland! Woo Hoo! We had a lot of fun and some good luck with the weather. She was the first person to see our new house, she met and fell in love with Addilyn and ran a marathon in Berlin. No big deal.

Stephanie was here about two weeks. The first week I had to work, but she did a lot on her own. She ventured to Montreax, a beautiful city in the French speaking part of Switzerland, Yvonne and Marcel were kind enough to hang out with her for an afternoon, she went up to the Gurten or the Bern Hill, and we were able to hang out in the evenings.

Of course we had Raclette pizza, a house favorite.




We headed downtown for a tour!

Saw the House of Parliament.


Saw the fountains.


What a view!


Had a little snack.


Saturday morning we went to Domodossola Italy for a market. Stephanie was in heaven when she saw all this fruit!


That evening, we went to a hockey game! We were exhausted!


I think my favorite day was our hike on the Axalp. Walter and Lucie are always kind enough to open up their holiday house for me and my visitors. Steph, Addilyn and I went up on a Monday, hiked to the lake and then drove home. It was a perfect day and we lucked out with gorgeous weather.

We stayed above the fog all day, except for the 10 minutes when it swarmed us and then left us.









On a rainy, rainy day we went to Luzern to sightsee. Steph and I went with tennis shoes, we came home with matching black with white polka dot rain boots. We had a great day in the rain. To make things even better, there was a little carnival with Gluwein, cotton candy and a little market. Nice!

We also went up to the Schilthorn, may be my new favorite tourist destination. Those pictures will come soon!

That was Steph's visit in a nutshell!
