I've got the key to my castle in the air, but whether I can unlock the door remains to be seen. — Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

Goodness gracious...isn't Switzerland beautiful? On the way back home from the Matterhorn, we took a quick detour in Montreux to visit the Chateau de Chillon. Unfortunately we arrived too late to go inside, but just exploring the grounds felt like a dreamy/fairy tale adventure.

PS. Thanks iGNANT for the feature!

  6. I hope I get more time in Switzerland someday. I was only able to visit the very southern, Italian area (which was also beautiful) but this just looks like a dream.

  8. I toured the chateau with my mom a few years ago! It was amazing. The dungeons were horrifying. You should definitely go back if you can.

  13. no wonder my dad loves switzerland so much. he talks about it very often and hopes to live there one day.
    i've been admiring your blog for a while and i'm always so fascinated by the simplicity of your photography. it conveys so much without being loud and in your face.

    best wishes!

  19. Oh, I was wondering if you'd made it to the Chateau Chillon! My grandparents lived near Geneva for a year when I was in high school, and visiting this castle was one of the highlights of my visit to them. (2 others: Annecy and Appenzell). And today is the first day in several months where I feel like I can breathe a little work-wise. So I'll finally be able to think about and schedule a little photo shoot. I haven't forgotten! xo
