If it is Tuesday, it must be Switzerland!

Today wasn’t quite as busy as yesterday, but it was still enjoyable with lots more spectacular scenery. We left at about 10:00 after a wonderful breakfast that included homemade jams and breads and drove through the Black Forest, this is where you find the old Hansel and Gretel type houses nestled in the hillsides. There was time for a brief photo stop and then we continued on to the Rhine Falls. These are waterfalls coming from the Rhine River.
The remainder of our afternoon was spent making our way to the ski town of Engelberg in Switzerland. We had incredible views of the Alps and the beautiful villages hanging on the mountainsides. Upon arrival at our hotel and check-in, we were thrilled to find our room has a balcony overlooking the town and ski slopes – again…incredibly beautiful!
Tomorrow looks to be another busy day as we remain at this hotel but travel to the nearby town of Lucerne for sightseeing and a lake cruise.
