Oh my goodness, I could not get these pictures and this blog post uploaded + edited quick enough!
So by bumping my Italy trip up, it overlapped with my parents visit! Having this time with them has been so much fun + so incredibly special. Over the weekend, we all took a trip to Switzerland to see the alps, and WOW. It was hands down, the most beautiful place I have ever been…honestly, ever. The whole day from start to finish was basically magical.
Today, I wanted to share a few of the pictures I snapped + a quick video I threw together from the trip! Take a peek! –>
FYI: To chronicle the images, we began in Tirano, Italy where we took a scenic train through the alps. We were dropped off in St. Moritz, spent some time there, and then returned to Tirano via bus. 🙂
- I still cannot get over it. You were just surrounded by these incredibly humongous, majestic mountains! And I am so not one to use the word “majestic”, but they really were…they just swallowed you up.
- You were allowed to open the windows on the train for better pictures. I took way too many — trying to decide which to post was so difficult!
- My Dad did *not* fall asleep on the way up, despite my picture. Though it wouldn’t have surprised me. #ManCanSleepAnywhere #HeDidGetUpToYodel #WishIHadTHATOnVideo
- Yes. I wore double buns. Hot tools in Europe = not the best, so I’ve been having some fun with different hats + hairstyles! 😉
- This was a place I’d never really think or wish to go [I’m usually drawn towards beaches], but holy-moly am I so glad I did. If you’ve never been – you MUST try + take a trip in this lifetime, it was something that I’ll never, ever forget.
We really had the most wonderful day, we were all so slap happy + just having the best time. The only thing missing was my brother 🙁 — but I know that little jet-setter will make his way there at some point! 😉
Have you ever been to Switzerland?
I know exactly what you mean about the mountains being huge and amazing – I agree it is just stunning in Switzerland although I have only been around Geneva! xx
Right?! They’re SO BIG! They’re really so gorgeous from any view. I’ve never seen anything like it! It’s been like 5 days and I’m still so blown away by them haha.
That is breathtaking! 😍

Wow!!! Beautiful! You can tell how much fun you & your family are having!!! And being a car fanatic, those windy roads look like SO much fun to drive on!!! Have a blast!!! 🙂
Oh my goodness, you would have died! There were so many fun cars in St. Moritz…and those roads were insane, the bus had to back up a few times to get around the corners haha! And thank you, we’ve all been having such a great time together 🙂
Thank you! It really was stunning!
I would love to go to Switzerland! I think most of my travel pins on Pinterest are of Switzerland!
YES! Do it, do it, do it!! :):)

Soooooo beautiful! I have to admit, I’m a bit jealous… ok super jealous lol 🙂 I have never been to Switzerland, or anywhere in Europe, but my husband traveled to all of those countries when he was in the Army and lived in Germany. He promises that he will take me there soon. I’m so happy that you got to experience all of that. What a wonderful beginning to YOUR year 🙂
Aw, thanks Angie! It’s been so wonderful thus far, such a nice trip! I know you’ll get to all of these places …+ you’ll have your own personal tour guide! Which is even better! XO 😉
