Swiss Post #11: A Cozy Couple Explores

by Leslie Patson | 29th December 2009

Towards the end of our trip we actually had part of a day to just wander around the city, just the two of us. All the rain and snow were gone and as you can see we were left with a bright blue sky and temps in the low 50’s. We visited the bridge we […] Read More
