Vacation Planning...

We have been putting the final touches on our next European vacation.  It took me a while to get everything situated, as I was unsure about what we would do for three days in the middle.  After a lot of thought and discussion, we have our plans set!

We will start off by visiting Lake Como, Italy.  This is an area that I have always wanted to visit and Ken was dead set on making sure I got to go there.  I am so excited about kayaking on the lake, going on a hike or two, and wandering around the promenade with gelato in tow.

After we leave Lake Como, we are headed to the Italian Riviera!  A lot of people visit Cinque Terre, but we have decided to visit a hidden gem on the riviera called Camogli.  We have a day of hiking planned which will take us to Portofino for lunch and a drink and hopefully we will find time to sit and relax on an Italian beach.

After Camogli, we are headed back to beautiful Lauterbrunnen for six nights!  I am so excited about our extended time here that I cannot stand it.  We have our fingers crossed that we will have a few clear days so that we can go on a few big hikes.  I can hardly wait to be back in what I think is the most beautiful place in the world.  Ken and I are so excited to celebrate his new decade of life in our favorite place!

The beautiful Lauterbrunnen Valley!

Here's hoping for a few days like this!

Keri, I somehow stumbled on your blog from doing a Google Search of Lauterbrunnen Valley. I too live in Kansas (Overland Park) and we are traveling this summer to Europe: Bacharach Germany, Riquewihr France, Lauterbrunnen Switz, Mittenwald Germany, Salzburg Aust, Prague Czechia.

This is our family blog: theconnellychronicles.blogspot.com

I would love to learn more from you about Lauterbrunnen. We're taking the kids and want to plan our time well. My email is wendyleia@yahoo.com (I don't check my gmail address). I'd love to connect and get your advice.

Thanks! Happy travels!
