What is the most famous landmark or building you have ever seen?
That is really a difficult one, because most famous is relative.
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?
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.
