« Part 6: Woodcarvings Part 7 of Swiss Trip series no next part

This trip was full of expected and unexpected things.
Oh yes, a Big Mac meal was $12.50!

We even saw aliens. The artist for the movie Aliens lives in one medieval town and displayed his work there.

You will never guess who this statue is of.

We went to a cheese factory and did I tell you we ate pretty food while there. LOL!

I got the Freddy Mercury statue…you can tell just by the stance, that and I have loved Queen’s music
The St Bernard pup was a nice touch. The cheese and food plates look wonderful as well

Lee, when I got of the plane here in Fort Wayne, IN I started saving for the next trip. :)

Roger, my wife and I honeymooned in Switzerland and visited the same little town (Gruyères I think) with the cheese factory and the Giger Museum. We sampled the cheeses at different the ages and found out we did not have the pallette for gruyere cheese, thereafter called “stinky cheese” in our household.
