Switzerland

Lightly dusted with snow…

So, maybe I haven’t lived in Europe long enough but wow…winter is just gorgeous…and that atmosphere. I know it is cliché but it really does look like someone has dusted the trees with icing sugar…

…ok, ok, fine, let’s talk again next winter. This is still that “new” phase where everything is wonderful (I’ve never seen so many beautiful icicles and gaze in awe at frozen waterfalls) and after a few winters I probably won’t appreciate it anymore…well, hopefully I will, as it is magnificent. Oh…we even had sun today but I couldn’t take any pics as I was stuck at the office! And my first really cold weather experience… -12 Degrees Celsius is a tad chilly when barely awake and heading to work in the morning…it did go up to a nice warm -1 though.

Isn’t nature amazing? The “live” version is spectacular.

My first European winter…

Oh my! It is freezing…and everyone is talking about autumn coming. How am I going to manage in winter???? My word it is cold…these were winter temperatures in South Africa…without the rain (that made it even easier to handle).

But the sunsets sure make up for it…
