Welcome to my Travel Journal.
The links below go directly to the blogs created before this one.
I am in the process of transferring my Travel Bye Design blog to here so that everything is in one place.
This documents my trip to Switzerland for a month in 2009. It is followed by my trip there in 2011 which was for 3 months. Although I took MANY photos, I have tried to choose those that would describe this journey from a photographic view, so it isn’t snapshots and pictures of people in a group that I met along the way. It truly is a travel journal.
If you are here just for a good read, here is one you don’t want to miss: Nazi Washing Machine
TRAVEL JOURNAL 2011
These may not be in chronological order but they did all occur between September and December 2011. It was a GLORIOUS trip and it’s a dream of a lifetime to be able to spend that much time being a “native.”
