Happy New Year 2014- Part 3 Uncle Mike and Aunt Marisa

One of the best parts of our holiday was that Marisa, Mike, Pooh Bah and Buddy were all here to celebrate. Marisa and Mike came on Christmas day which was the best Christmas gift ever. Marisa and Mike stayed with us a little over a week until they headed off to visit their old homeland of Hungary for a couple of days.  

While they were here, we did quite a lot- tromped around Bern, took a gondola up to a quaint old Swiss mountain town on a cliff (called Murren), took a trip to Luzern to eat some great Thai food, see the covered bridges and peruse some Picaso's. After a fun night at home on new years eve, we rang in the new year with a day trip to charming Fribourg, which is the little town Nat's office resides in. We loved exploring the ancient cobblestone walkways and buildings built on the cliffs of Fribourg, and ended the afternoon by enjoying a nice couple of beers on a deck in the middle of old town. It was a wonderful new year day, I hope it was an indication of a great year ahead. 

Marisa has always, and probably will always (unless I train Cora very,very well) be my best travel buddy in the world. I already miss tromping around with her so much but I'm already looking forward to our next adventure together!

Our newest travel buddy!
