Joseph and I spent months planning our 10th anniversary trip. 7 cities, 7 plane rides, 8 hotels, and 18 days. There was a lot do work out. This quick trip to Switzerland was one of our last editions, and we really did it for one reason: we wanted a snowy winter wonderland.

Unfortunately, as happens in travel, our 24 hours in Switzerland were all rainy. Rainy and cold. We landed on a Sunday and left the next Monday. There wasn’t much for us to do, especially since the one place on our list (United Nations) had closed for the season three days earlier.

We stayed in just about the cutest hotel imaginable, Hotel Edelweiss. The whole place smelled like cinnamon – that’s basically a dream come true for me! A warm, welcoming refuge to the rainy days outside.
