This is the door at the back of our hotel leading into the spa area. This hotel was so incredible - I felt like Heidi staying there. From my balcony I looked out at Mont Blanc and the beautiful countryside with roaming cows listening to their cow bells! Each room had window boxes full of blooming geraniums so looking at the back of the hotel was stunning. (See actual photo below) Very unique and great place to stay!!

This is my journal entry for Chateau de Chillon in Montreux Switzerland. We took the train from Geneva to this wonderful town. It's known for this large Chateau, it's beautiful waterfront promenade and Freddie Mercury. We walked the three miles along the promenade to the castle. The walk was stunning with a full array of blooming flowers and trees. We stopped many times to photograph the landscaping. (That's another journal entry) We did see the large Freddie Mercury statue along the way. He is pretty much a hero in Switzerland. I didn't know he'd lived there, but they totally claim him.

Since I just returned from two wonderful trips to Europe, I thought I'd share my travel journal. The first trip was to the Swiss & French Alps. We landed in Geneva and toured that area first. This is a sketch of a lighthouse on the lake. We took a boat tour later that day to get a good feel for the area. Lucky us - perfect weather for this outing.
