We left Belgium on Thursday with Annelies and Yves for a drive to Switzerland. Our mutual friends Tammi and Martin, who we hadn’t seen for two years, live in Ecublens, a small village outside of Lausanne near Rue.
Ecublens is about an 8-hour drive from Zaffelare, Annelies and Yves’ hometown. Another mutual friend, Heather, with her husband, Timo, had arrived in Ecublens on Thursday morning. We were headed for a fun reunion.
Heather and Timo had been visiting Timo’s family in Sweden and Finland. Ecublens was a brief stopover on their way home. We knew we wouldn’t make it all the way to Switzerland on Thursday night, but wanted to arrive reasonably early on Friday.
We had a very late dinner at a Burger King in Luxembourg and then stopped for the night in Metz, France. I spotted the Amish Minion at a service area off the highway. He makes me smile.
As usual, I don’t have time for a full-blown post, but wanted to share a few pics and let y’all know that all is well.
We’ve had a fabulous visit. I know this is getting repetitive, but I’ll share details and more pics later. We leave here in a bit to head back north. First stop, Sinsheim, Germany.
We’ve enjoyed Switzerland even more than I thought we would. And that says a lot. Tammi and Martin are fabulous hosts with a beautiful home and two cute dogs. Martin is a wonderful cook, too. We’ve eaten well, laughed A LOT, and shared lots of stories. I’m already looking forward to our next gathering.
