SWITZERLAND/ and back again


Pictures, pictures and more pictures...I wanted to say something, but honestly, what more can I say that these pictures haven't said already. From France to Switzerland and Geneva to Lausanne and back again. I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I do.

SWITZERLAND/ from geneva to lausanne...

Switzerland...where do I begin? I will remember you with fond memories...and it was in Lausanne that I had one of the best meals of my life. It is with these thoughts that I once again leave you.

PARIS/round 1

So was it love at first sight? No, it wasn't. Was it just like the movies? No! Hollywood you owe me money for all the times you made me fall in love with the idea of being in love with Paris! I'll get back to you on the amount, but I'll settle for a Burberryshearling jacket and Ann Demeulemeester boots. Now, back to my experience; I wanted to walk along the left bank with a baguette under my arm, drink wine at a cafe and walk in the rain, because according to Midnight in Paris, that's when Paris is most beautiful. Well, I was able to get a baguette, but I wasn't along the left bank... I was at a metro stop by the Catacombs. I did drink wine at many cafes, but it didn't rain once...So, is Paris beautiful? It's more beautiful than I imagined. I'm glad we spent as much time there as we did... there's so much to see.

I will say that going back to Europe just makes me miss it even more. I spent a lot of time in Germany when I was younger; I grew up there, but not born there. So, when someone asks where I'm from and everyone else is able to just name one place. I'm the one in the group that has to take a deep breath...and then begin.

Amanda described Paris the best when she said, "Paris is like New York." She's right, it is...tons of people walking with a purpose, everyone eats out, beautiful stores, amazing food (I'm never going to eat another club sandwich unless I'm in Paris). Perhaps that gives an idea of just how great the food is. Sure, I had escargot, the foie gras and tartar, but one of the last nights I had something as simple as a club sandwich and a beer and it was amazing!

So, I leave you with pics of a few of my favorite things from Paris...Round 1.

STANDING STILL/juicy couture

Can I say that after going to the Clyfford Still Museum I am now a fan? Not exactly...I do respect his work and there are quite a few pieces that I respond to...if anything, the architecture of the museum is amazing and worth the experience.

So, last year I was recruited by the Galactic Empire. It's kind of like the Army National weekend a month, two weeks a year thing. Granted, I didn't get my first choice of assignment, and the suit is hotter than hell, but they do have great benefits, so I can't really complain.

LOST.../jack & jones jacket

Suffering from the affects of jet lag and allergies...waking up in middle of the night I've passed the time drinking wine and marathon episodes of Star Trek Enterprise provided courtesy of an Amazon Prime membership that after the free trial I forgot to cancel. But, I can't complain as I've enjoyed the free 2 day shipping on purchases and now I can access a huge library of movies and shows streamed directly through my PS3 in glorious HD. So, now unable to sleep and feeling the affects of multiple glasses of wine, which is not having the effect I wanted because I just want to sleep; I emerged from my loft to bring these pics that Amanda and I took over the weekend. The jacket is by Jack & Jones which I discovered in Jeans & Co., a store in Geneva, Switzerland. It wasn't until sharing drinks at a great pizzeria overlooking Lake Geneva I realized that I must have it. Amanda and I braved a torrential downpour for me to be able to transact and make this piece mine and now I share it with you.

Pics of our trip will come soon, so keep it locked...
