Switzerland

My brother and sister-in-law, Tim and Lois, have recently been to Switzerland.  I have inserted a small selection of their photos below (they took about 500!), with comments by Tim.

NB Clicking on the photos will enlarge them and bring up a slideshow.

Edelweiss flowers, Switzerland's most famous flower (despite originally coming from the Himalayas!)
Paragliding - happens a lot in Switzerland, for those not content to see the mountains while standing on other mountains!

The hundred year old railway on Schynige Platte that takes you up to the hotel/restaurant and alpine botanic garden. The little station at the end is 1970 metres up
