spring break 2011 has been awesome so far, and it is not over yet. BUT, if i were to sum up our adventures thus far in one word it would have to be this: conned.
if you want to know why, you can ask me later.
this vacation has been quite... ecclectic. we have stayed in a marriott, a random resort, a hostel, and now we are in a home. we have done everything from sightseeing, to beach bumming, to bike riding, to fondue, to sitting on a couch and watching pride and prejudice (love mr. darcy). we have been in the center of rome, the middle of nowhere, the vatican city, and now a little country cottage in a quaint little town in switzerland. after seeing a few geneva delights, we headed on the train to the town of mies where jamie's roommate's family lives. random, yes. perfect, absolutely.
they have been so kind to us and we have just had the most relaxing day. we even got to make PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY sandwiches for lunch. i could not have been happier! we sat on couches and went to the grocery store and sampled swiss chocolate and had a real family dinner. simple and sweet and just what we needed. everyday is an adventure. and now, for some PICTURES, in no particular order that are just a FEW of the highlights thus far...
