What is the most famous landmark or building you have ever seen?

That is really a difficult one, because most famous is relative.

New York 1993

This was 24 years ago, a 46 year old me, on my trip to New York with Mr. Swiss for a week and never to be forgotton. I have seen the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the colosseum in Rome, and of course all the London famous monuments, but for New York I had to cross an ocean knowing it would probably be the only time that I would ever be in the States. I was going to show a photo of me standing in front of Lady Liberty, but on this photo taken on Ellis Island, you see the complete New York skyline, what could be better? And the twin towers were still standing – I even got to the top of one of them.

Do you like long vacation or lots of mini-vacations?

Today I don’t like any sort of vacation, for me it only means stress. I live on holiday and no longer need to go places and see things. I prefer to visit local places and as long as I have a camera with me I am content.

What is your favorite natural or state park? 

Wild Meadow 23.05.2017

I live in a natural park, surrounded by wild meadows, trees, and a river runs near it all, not quite through it, but only a few minutes away. It is teaming with wild life and I love it.

What is your fantasy vacation?

I have been blogging for many years, 9 in WordPress. My fantasy vacation would be one day to travel and visit all those wonderful friends I have found on this site (yes Cee, you are also on the list). I know it is no longer possible, but it would be a dream come true. I met one of them last year, when she was passing through Switzerland, and all being well will probably meet another next year. I just wish it does not remain  a fantasy.

What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I am grateful that last week has come and gone. There were noise emissions from the builders renovating our block that reached the borders on the ear drums. The grand finale was last week on Wednesday and now the worst is behind us. We had four days without builders due to Ascension day and the Friday afterwards and then came the week-end. Today they have returned, but the drilling an destruction is now finished. Painting and insulation does not make noise thank goodness.

This week I have really hoping for peace returning to our daily lives.

  1. Where you live sounds incredibly beautiful and idyllic (apart from the noise pollution last week, but everyone’s got that now and again.)
    I debated over which landmarks are more famous, too. Excellent choice though 🙂

    • I realise as I get older how satisfied I can be to live here, a sort of dream come true after growing up in the streets of London. Settling for one landmark is very difficult – am still wondering about Mount Everest 🙂

      • Oh! See, that too!
        I thought mostly about the pyramids, Eiffel Tower, Stonehenge, Leaning Tower of Pisa — because those are internationally famous, I’m sure. You’re right to say it’s relative.

        • Funny tho, my dad saw the pyramids and the sphinx and most of the landmarks of Italy, even visited Palestine as it was then called (now Israel) all at the cost of the British army in the last world war as a soldier. Not to forget Paris and varioius parts of Germany.

          • Right? My husband has seen much of the world on account of service, and I wish I could claim half of what he’s seen. Like, Rock of Gibraltar!

  2. We grew up in famous places so we have seen lot of famous places and never even thought about them. I think the only people for whom this becomes more meaningful are kids like my granddaughter who grew up here and thing going to Boston is a really big deal!

    it’s a pity that flying has become such a bummer these days. I’d come visit YOU in a heartbeat … but I’m not going anywhere near an airport!

    • That is true. We often went to Bern for shopping, or perhaps Zürich for a day, which are not so far away. I cannot remember the last time we visited those places. We just don’t have the energy or interest. I would love to meet you, but it will have to remain on my bucket list.

  3. I’ve been lucky to meet a couple of blogger’s too. It is fun. That would be a cool vacation going to see places with friends we’ve met through blogging. And yes, you would definitely be on that list. 😀
