  • In my last story, I shared my adventure about my train rides to the top of Europe, which is in Switzerland. This photo is my favorite shot from that magical train ride. Every time I see this picture I am back on that train with my family enjoying the shear beauty of this valley.

    Switzerland is one of those countries where you feel like you have literally stepped into a fairly tale land. Can you find the waterfall in this picture? At the bottom of this waterfall is where we spent the night in a youth hostel. We cuddled up in bunk beds and craved our names in the wooden slants. My husband and older son climbed up to a cave inside of the waterfall while my younger son and I watched from the hostel balcony.

    The gift of a family vacation is something that I will never return.
