Swiss countryside

So I'm back :) It was a wonderful trip and exceeded all my expectations. It was incredibly hard to leave my family behind and during the entire journey I felt lost and bewildered. But once I saw my wonderful sister waiting for me on the other side, I put on my big girl panties and approached the adventure with the enthusiasm it deserved. It was fantastic to be in Europe again after all these years! I also enjoyed having adult conversations for a full 10 days without interruption and I will never forget the time my sister and I spent together. It was also fantastic to have someone with me who is just as fanatic about photography than I am! We spent hours walking around with our cameras, looking for new and interesting things to capture and the best part was looking at the results at the end of each day. It's still amazing to me how two people can walk in each other's footsteps and seem to aim their cameras in the same direction, but still end up with totally different images.
I'm so glad I went on this trip - it has enriched, energised, enlightened and entertained me. It was a privilege and I'm so grateful to have had the opportunity.
Obviously, I took an obscene amount of photos and I'll try not to bore you with too many repetitive images.
We took a trip from Zurich to St Gallen and surrounds and I fell in love with the Swiss countryside. Unfortunately, it rained the whole day, but I was not about to neglect my camera because of a few drops of water!

Awesome photos! I really like the colors in the first two, and I could spend the better part of the day sitting in front of the building in the third photo just watching the day go by.

Welcome back. I would love to explore the Swiss countryside with all its fields, mountains, lakes and so much more.

My fav two are the first and the third ones.
