I can't believe that we have already been home over almost 3 weeks...the jetlag is gone (even though I didn't really have any) and summer is in full swing...too bad there's still that little thing called work we have to tend to! We planned this Baltic cruise back in March of 2012 so it's hard to believe that it has come and gone. We had a fantastic time and I'm going to split up each location into separate blog posts because I have entirely too many pictures...but I wouldn't have it any other way!
We started our journey from ATX on Friday morning and flew to Atlanta. We had a quick lunch in Atlanta and then boarded our flight to Zurich. It was about a 10 hour flight and after dinner and 2 glasses of wine (Justin had 2 beers) we took a unisom and ended up sleeping most of the flight - it was great!! I'm never able to sleep so this flight didn't seem any worse than the flight to NY!

I love all these European cities because they are so walkable.
|Swiss National Museum|
|Adorable little Swiss street - I didn't notice all the Swiss flags until I saw the pictures!|
|St. Peter's Church - the oldest church in Zurich...said to have largest clock face in continental Europe|
|Mom & Dad|
|Fancy sports car...which had a carseat in the passenger seat! NBD|
|Pretty view of the Swiss Alps!|
|Lake Zurich runs through the city|
|Grossmunster Church...built in the 12th Century|
|Texas BBQ Sauce Pringles...do we even have these here??|
When we got back to the hotel Justin, mom & dad were all ready to pass out and our rooms still weren't ready (2:30pm-ish). They told us we could wait in the internet room so as I'm on the computer I look over and find this!
Seriously?! I'm not even tired...something isn't right here! Our rooms were ready about 15 minutes later and since the ones we booked were full we were upgraded to suites! They were so nice...on the top floor, 2 rooms, and what a view!
