Switzerland the way I always imagined

These photos are of my spectacular weekend in the Swiss Alps. This is the Switzerland I always pictured. Switzerland is a beautiful country and where I live has many wonderful sights: these are the sights. These mountains are what I see from my balcony and I was finally able to walk among them.

I walked along Walensee in Weesen and went a little picture crazy. This may be one of the most beautiful natural places that I’ve ever been in. It was as thought the weather had been holding back all week to release all of its sunshine on this day. When I got out of the car, I felt like I had stepped into a sauna. People were swimming and boats filled the water.

Since there were so many people in the water, I assumed it’d be quite warm, but oh no! This is the coldest water I’ve ever been in. Luckily, the air was so hot that the water was quick to get used to. Further down you’ll see that I couldn’t resist getting in… even getting my shorts a bit wet!

I wish I could have taken every single one of you with me because this place is truly breathtaking. I had a tough time narrowing it down, but I hope you don’t mind the abundance of photos. I even included a couple larger panoramas so make sure to click them to get the whole view. Enjoy!

    Wow, Eva. I don’t even know how to process these pictures they’re so beautiful. I can’t imagine having experienced this majestic setting. I believe the pictures fail to do the “real life” view justice, but thanks for sharing the inspiration nonetheless.

Its so cool, the contrasting colors and the sky! So pretty! And the one underneath the pictures of you! That was sooo cool! I love how the sun shone on the water like that! So pretty :) I can’t wait to visit other places so I can start getting cool pictures like these! It makes me jealous! You’ve been EVERYWHERE!!! But remember, you have to save Australia for when we go together :)
