Goooooooooooooooooood morning SWITZERLAND!!!!!!!!!
An opportunity came up a few months back for D to go to a conference in Barcelona, which we planned to go on together and turn into a vacation (because, we are really really good at that). Before heading to Spain, D was going to go work in the Zurich office for a week before I met up with him in Spain thinking that I wouldn't be able to swing the first part of the trip. Somehow, I managed to get permission to work from Zurich for a week (?!?!?!) and so here we are, again. This week will not be as exciting as previous trips, because, poor me, I will actually be working. Although, I am going to be on an east coast schedule and be working from 12 - 9pm, leaving my mornings open for adventure in the crisp fall air. I really do love this time of year.

After a much needed shower and snack, we head out into the city! First stop was the wine bar one block from our house (trouble). Second stop, and to start the trip off right, (/make my German heart even more happy/keep me awake to a decent hour) we walked downtown to get my first traditional meal of the trip, wurst, at Zeughauskeller, a traditional Swiss German restaurant in old town. Lastly, to warm our souls via spiked hot coco and extra thick homemade whipped cream, we hung out at my favorite Conditorei, Cafe Schober, in old downtown all to prepare us for our leisurely walk back to our apartment in the chilly fall night air.
Oh Europe, I love you.
