Today GLH and I hopped on a train and traveled to the Swiss city of Basel. The trip from Zürich took approximately an hour.
The primary purpose of our trip was to join up with a bunch of other Swiss bloggers for lunch. Organized by The Big Finn, Sara from Life Is Nicht So Mal and Jul from This Non-American Life, the event was attended by approximately 20-25 bloggers, spouses and friends from around Switzerland.
Other bloggers who attended include the Expatters, Risse's in Switzerland, Swiss Job and Tales of an Expat Hausfrau. And a bunch more, but I'm not sure where their blogs are! I'd give ya imbedded links to the blogs I know, but I'm feeling lazy and still getting accustomed to my new German language keyboard. So look to your right and hit the links yerself!
We stayed at the restaurant for a couple of hours and then left as it was our first time in Basel and we wanted time for a walk-about to explore the city.
Below are some photos I took with my brand-new camera. It was my first time using it. The quality of the photos is nowhere near what I get from my Nikon D70, but it can fit easily into my purse and doesn't weigh a ton. Therefore, it will become my "carry with me just in case" camera.
Enjoy the photos! I'd tell you what they are, but I don't actually know. Uncharacteristically for me, I did absolutely no research before going, did not have a guidebook and we just rambled aimlessly about enjoying the weather and the whole experience. And learning how to use the new camera.
We'll have to go back another time for an official "Discover Basel" trip!
