See that room on the top left with the balcony? That was our room in this cute little hotel in Vitznau. I'm so glad we ended up staying in this darling little town instead of in the much larger Lucerne. The hotel was right across the street from the bus stop, the ferry dock and the cogwheel train that ascended Mt. Rigi.
|Seriously, why does my hair have to look so horrible on vacation?|
We stopped halfway up to do this:
Huayna Picchu in Peru. Literally being 'above it all' helps you keep perspective. And I'm tickled to have the bells to remember too. Like listening to the underwater whale song while snorkeling in Hawaii years ago, multisensory memories just stays richer and stronger in my head.
I love that line from Pride and Prejudice. What are any of us compared to the majesty and vast permanence of rocks and mountains?
Edited**** Today in Rothenburg I bought a bell that sounds just like the sheep bells on the mountain. I clanged every bell in the shop and only one had just the right sound. Can't wait to find the perfect place to hang it.
