Dubai and Switzerland – last week of travels

Arrived safely in Zurich, Switzerland yesterday after a beyond frustrating experience the day before dealing with my airline and their staff. But that’s the whole experience with traveling.

I was given an extra day in Dubai, but not the way I wanted it. Without a doubt I would love to go back soon. My visit there was too short.

On Saturday, the Earps treated me to the view from the Burj Khalifa, which is the tallest building in the world. Amazing sight to see even with the fog! We also went walking around the Dubai Mall, the largest mall in the world. It had a nice skating rink and an aquarium.

I ended up leaving on Sunday morning due to overbooking of my Saturday flight. The plane from Dubai to Zurich was an A380. Absolutely huge! My row was 68A and I was on the bottom deck. The wing span of the plain was huge! I could not see any view whatsoever because the wing was that big.

Today, Monday, Ms. Franzi took me to the mountains. The drive was so beautiful. Along the road, we could see Lake Geneva! Breath taking!!! Then, we drove up to the Alps, where all the snow was. We passed by all these villages and traditional style homes. It looked like something out of a movie. The two of us went up the ski gondola towards the top and on the way up it stopped for about a minute. Longest minute of my life! However, the view was beyond words. God is an amazing creator! Such beauty!!! Up at the top, I took my barefoot photo in the snow (Cheyenne had dared me!) My toes went into shock ;)

I’m still trying to adjust to the time. Switzerland is three hours behind Dubai which isn’t so bad, but my tummy is a bit confused on what time to eat.

Bed time is calling me!
