Tanya's Daily Scoop Covering the West Coast & the World NEXT TRIP DEPARTS IN: 9 DAYS
Spotlight on Switzerland
I'm glad to announce that yesterday was quite productive - just the way I like it! With having a lousy sinus infection that had me bed ridden for a few day, that really put me behind and each day that I felt ick made me think about how much I appreciate feeling awesome!!
I'm someone who hardly ever gets sick or under the weather - I honestly cannot tell you the last time I even had the sniffles. So with a sinus infection completely taking me out and putting me in bed that was quite horrendous for me.
I have a hearty soul as well as quite a high threshold for pain tolerance, just because I don't get ill, doesn't mean I don't get banged up...
There are times when I can certainly be a rather rough and tumble sort of gal.
I'm definitely more familiar with limping around than laying around!
But enough about that. The main point I was making was to appreciate appreciate appreciate!
So anyhow let's chat about travel and today I wanted to focus on one of my very favorite countries - SWITZERLAND
While I don't currently have a trip going to Switzerland on the calendar (unless we are counting my 2021 trip - in that case, than I actually do!)
So of course I had to peak inside and see just what these 25 things were. Not being all that surprised when I realized that we have already experienced 13 of them!
Keep in mind that out of the 12 we haven't done, this gal right here is really only interested in 5 (maaaaaybe 6) of what's left on the list.
Being that posting all 25 would take up much of the page and give you quite a long read. So rather, I've compiled all 25 in the Travel Article SPOTLIGHT ON SWITZERLAND
And for here and now let's just take a looksie at the first 5 on this list - 1. Ski in the Shadow of the Matterhorn
2. Stroll Through Lucerne
3. Go to the Top of Europe
4. Listen to Music I've not gone to any music festivals in Switzerland
5. Eat Cheese Being a vegan - this one can not be on my list
Well this stroll down memory lane has been quite fun for me, check out my Spotlight on Switzerland to see all 25 on the list and my other experiences in Switzerland.
I'll sign out for now. Wish you a great day and invite you to come back and see what we're up to tomorrow!
Ciao 4 now, -Travelin Tanya
Elisa's Daily Scoop Covering Long Island & NYC Boroughs NEXT TRIP DEPARTS IN: 17 DAYS
Elisa's Overnight to Stony Brook Countdown
Hey there, The beginning of this week is freed up now that we are postponing our Hudson, NY trip. Heard from a few of you who were disappointed in the cancellation as you were looking forward to hearing all the details. Don't worry - we'll be getting it back on the calendar again.
As you might have noticed, I put a "new" trip on my departure countdown above. It's a simple overnight to Stony Brook in 17 days, which I think will be a nice little break and full of my two favorite pastimes: Historical Sites and Eating!!
CLICK HERE for my brief overview about this Long Island hamlet and the 8 Places located in Stony Brook that are on the National Historic Register.
My plan is to pick up the kids from school that day and immediately head east on our 50 minute drive.
After a quick hotel check-in and bag drop off, we will make our way towards the village center and hopefully take in two national historic landmarks before having dinner.
These include William Sidney Mount House and the St. James Chapel.
The next morning, I'm planning an early start (not on the hit parade of my Gianna), grabbing a quick breakfast and then a visit to the Long Island Museum of Art, History & Carriages, which will be followed by a guided tour at The Stony Brook Grist Mill.

The Long Island Museum of Art, History & Carriages, established in 1939, preserves and displays its extensive collection of art, historical artifacts, and carriages. Stoked for this, which should be totally fun and charming!!

The Stony Brook Grist Mill, Long Island’s most completely equipped working mill, is listed on the National and New York State Register of Historic Places.
As recently as the 1950s, farmers still brought their wheat and corn to be ground at the mill. Miller Schaefer ground natural wheat at the mill and shipped his “health food” to customers in 42 states. Today, it is open to the public for guided tours, to which I'm thoroughly looking forward!
With all that history, I'm pretty sure that my girls will be good and ready for the Afternoon Tea I have planned at Robinson's Tea Room!
My visit to Robinson's Tea Room will be right on schedule for my upcoming story later this month: Afternoon Tea on Long Island!!
I'm still battling this cold, but I'm feeling much better than the past few days, thank goodness, and certainly well enough to make a trip with my girls to Trader Joe's for some healthy goodies!
