  • Wil 6/3/16 Today is our first full day in Switzerland and we went to a museum in Sissach (pronounced SEE-sac) near where we are staying. It was called the Heimatmuseum, meaning folk museum. In the museum there where rifles, pistols, swords, knifes, Posted by in | Mar 9, 2016

  • Lucerne, Paris, and the End of ContikiHello! I am surprisingly sad to say that my Contiki tour has ended, and basically everyone has gone home.

  • Geneva Lake Geneva has got to be one of the most happy places in all of Europe. The Jet d'Eau is the focal point of the lake but the setting of the lake flanked by picturesque hills makes the entire scene breathtaking. Posted by Ceej in Around the world .... | Sep 28, 2015

  • Day 24: I'm on top of the world... or er... an Alp!We had to wake up early today. Like early, early. Like the bus LEFT at 6:30. My body was not made for this.
