The Post....




Hi there everyone....
Well, I survived the plane trip (35 hours from Byron Bay to Geneva!), have brushed off my jet lag - and I live to tell the tale as my journey begins. I love that I'm kicking off my time in Europe sharing a week in Switzerland with my true love... hubby! Hubby suggested that we meet in Geneva - as he was already traveling for work and I'd never been to Switzerland before. How lovely to be collected from the airport on the other side of the world - by my lovely man. So we've spent the last few days just kicking around the place, generally enjoying the beauty and the joie de vivre. Although we didn't have any particular agenda - we decided that a few days in Zermatt might be fun - and so we bought a ticket - hopped a train and found ourselves here - at the Hotel Post. This is the room that I'm writing from now - decorated in a modern chalet style with views over the town square. The weather is so gorgeous - with the sun peeping over the Matterhorn and the temperature warm and cosy. What a lovely way to begin my 40s....
