A weekend jaunt over to Locarno in Ticino, the southern / Italian part of Switzerland calls for some amazing Italian food for dinner. After wandering town and popping by a guitar festival, we trekked up the hill to a place called @grottolauro Grotto Lauro in Arcegno. We started with the insalata mista and tomato buffalo mozzarella salads. I got the Osso Buco and Jeff got the slow cooked beef special whose gravy tasted like the liquid gold of boeuf bourguignon. We shared a chocolate torte for dessert. Oh, and of course I ate the bone marrow slathered on some bread with a dash of salt. Can’t let that go to waste. #grottolauro#asconalocarno#locarnoswitzerland#travelswitzerland#ticinoswitzerland#ticino 🇨🇭 #ticinofood#exploreswitzerland

Finally testing my 50mm on this trip. 📷💓 #sonya6000
Seealpsee - это одно из немногих небольших, но очень красивых горных озер в Швейцарии, до которого очень легко добраться.
Оно находиься в регионе Аппенцель, и от деревеньки Wasserauen с конечной железнодорожной станцией идти постепенно в гору около 40-50 минут по хорошей дороге... 🏔
Seealpsee - one of the small, but very beautiful lakes in Switzerland, which you can easily reach without long hiking..
It is located in famous Appenzel region and from small willage Wasserauen with railway station you need just 40-50 minutes along the good road..
Paraglider over Lake Brienz
On my second day hiking the picturesque Schynige Platte, I made my way to this amazing vista point overlooking Lake Brienz. However when photographing it, it was missing something - some kind of visual anchor which I always look for in my compositions. I was resigned to the fact that it one of those scenes that I just experienced with no compelling image to capture. Then suddenly, this paraglider appeared in the distance, as if from heaven to punctuate this epic view.

The perfect pedicure can make a flip flop look like a stiletto👡
If you've seen me and asked about my trip, you probably know that Switzerland was overall my favorite country. The biggest reason? Hiking views! . . . .
I probably saw somewhere around 30-40 waterfalls within a week. In some places in the alps, the only noise you can hear for miles is the distant crashing of water onto the rocks below a fall. The bigger ones get rather loud when you get near them!
