Europe in the winter – a photo journey of Germany, Austria and Switzerland

Hi Frugalistas!

The final in my winter in Europe series – this time a journey through Germany, Austria and Switzerland.  We were fortunate enough to spend December traveling through these countries in 2009.

      Thank you, I’m glad you enjoyed them. It was a wonderful trip (my husband was chief photographer on that trip)

    Wonderful photo montage! I’ve always taught that a winter sojourn in Europe is magical. Some of the places here were those I visited in February 2010. This series reminded of that fabulous trip. Thanks! 🙂

      Glad you enjoyed it. I must say it was pretty close to being my favourite trip of all time – just magical!
