Mar 19, 2019 - Quick relaxing break in Davos!

The next day I had to leave and it was really a travel day across all of Switzerland. I was heading to Davos which is one of the most eastern parts of the country. In the middle of my day I stopped in Lauterbrunnen which is near Interlaken and there is a waterfall that goes over the whole town. I just sat on a ledge and ate lunch. Headed to Davos and I arrived at night. Even at night it was the cutest little town. Everything was lit up in the valley and the mountains were shadowed in the background. My room was super nice and I had a...

Nov 29, 2013 - Skiing in the Alps

Kevin took us to a ski resort in the Alps in Davos, Switzerland. The drive up the Alps was incredible and incredibly scary. The views were fantastic but the roads were very small and left no room between the street and the straight drop off the cliff. Kevin handled the driving well- being accustomed to these roads. We purchased snow pants and settled into a hotel for the night. The next morning we had to get another hotel as ours was full for the next night. We then began our skiing adventure. It was expensive to buy the snow pants and rent...

Dec 25, 2011 - Christmas Day

Our day started by loading up into 3 horse-drawn sleighs for a picture-book perfect ride through the valley to the town of Teufli where we enjoyed a large cheese fondue, local wine, and schnapps at the local fondue restaurant. We saw blue sky, mountain streams, and xcountry skiers who glided with as much grace as a ballet dancer. Children were with there parents being pulled on their sleds. Others were treating their dogs to a walk through the snow. After lunch, we headed up the Passenbaum (tram) to the top of the world. Got to see the DH...

Dec 21, 2011 - Davos Day 4 Brewery/Snowshoeing

We left bright and early for a bus ride to Monsteiner Brewery. The winding road was snow-packed, one lane, and gave all sitting on the right side of bus quite a thrill. The little village of Monstein was beautiful..Snow hanging from the roofs and trees. windows of the homes were decorated with Christmas greenery and ornaments. At the brewery we got to taste the local golden and dark brews as well as some schnapps. By the time the tour was over, Judy and I were laughing uncontrollably...too much fun. When we returned to town, Marilyn and I...

Dec 20, 2011 - Davos TB Museum and Winter Sports Museum

We were off today with a local guide who lives in Davos. We headed to the medicine museum where a history of the treatment for TB was presented by a doctor. The old respiratory equipment and pneuothorax and leg extension machines were innovative and state of the art back in the early 1900's. We enjoyed lunch a local pizzera. Afterwards we did some shopping a souvenir store and department store and then headed for the winter sports museum where we saw first generation snowshoes, skiis, tobagans and sleds.

Dec 19, 2011 - Davos, Switzerland

Well we made to Davos and it is beautiful here..About 2 ft of fresh snow and the mountain peaks are beckoning us. Today we had short tour of the town, converted our US dollars to Swiss francs, tried some of the local hot chocolate and ate meals fit for kings and queens..Even though we spent most of the day airborne, we walked enough to accumulate over 10,000 steps. Marilyn and I are considering a day downhill skiing...and the slopes look quite intimidating from our hotel's balcony...so we'll have to see about that. We'll try checking in...
