For Frank this week – a hiking trail in Switzerland
Cooling Here in Scandinavia – and several other European countries – we have endured a more than two months’ long heat wave, with temperatures exceeding everything since measurements started in Sweden hundreds of years ago.

For Cee this week – Rain or Rainbows – luckily I found both! And I could not resist my pretty little Swiss girls either – surely they are little rainbows both of them?
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter X – X needs to be anywhere in the word or shaped like the letter X For Cee’s challenge this week – I go for shape. A mountain meadow in Switzerland – flowers and steep hills. There is need for an X- fence.
Travel theme: Turquoise Those mountain lakes in Switzerland – they are my first thought when it comes to soft turquoise! Fresh and clear mountain water
