TOP OF THE WORLD
"Switzerland is so beautiful -- so far I don't know which country I like best". That was an excerpt from my Grandma Theresa's travel diary in 1961 after visiting Switzerland and Austria. I will have to say that I wholeheartedly agree with her. Even though I am a Southern California gal, there is something about the Alps (whether they are in Italy, Austria or Germany) that I find so completely irresistible. They are just so majestic!
On our 2nd day in Switzerland, we went on a tour that took us to Jungfrauoch -- the highest railway station in Europe and an amazing place to visit. It was August but there was snow everywhere! I walked through the Ice Palace (ice on all the top, bottom and sides of us), basked in the sun on the huge glacier and enjoyed the awesome views from the Observation desk. It was all very magical!
