Win A Trip For 2 To Switzerland

Switzerland Tourism is sponsoring the Sebi & Paul Sweepstakes, giving you a chance to win a trip for 2 to Switzerland.

Sebi & Paul are “legendary Swiss ambassadors” (can’t say that I’ve heard of them) that star in humorous videos about the country. To enter the sweepstakes, you have to watch their new video and fill out a form on Facebook. (You’ll also have to “like” MySwitzerland’s FB page to enter.)

Kim, Lucas and I spent a short amount of time in Switzerland earlier in the year. We drove through the Swiss Alps and also spent a day in a nice area which had some amazing castles during our Quick Euro-Roadtrip. I’d love to go back to see more of the country. Winning this prize would be a great way to get a chance to visit again! Continue reading Win A Trip For 2 To Switzerland

3 Countries In 4.5 Days, Our Quick Euro Roadtrip

We got back from our Quick Euro Roadtrip a couple of weeks ago and it’s time to share what we did. We had an awesome time, which had a lot to do with everything running smoothly especially after the weather at home almost made the trip not happen.

Our trip, which only came about due to an amazing airfare to Milan was saved thanks to Wideroe chat which helped us change our flight to leave a day earlier than originally planned.

The flight (in coach) was comfortable enough except for the feeling of knees in my back from the passenger behind me a bunch of times. Kim seemed to have the same problem too. Lucas did great. Other then getting a bit fidgety sitting in his seat  (in his CARES harness) while the plane was stuck at the gate for a bit longer than expected, he enjoyed the flight and slept most of the time. Otherwise, the flight wasn’t memorable besides catching an excellent movie- Captain Phillips

Trip Planning: A Quick Euro Roadtrip

Screen Shot 2014-02-13 at 4.42.21 PMLast month Kim, Lucas and I took a quick trip to Oslo, Norway thanks to an awesome mistake fare from Wideroe. While the fares were hot (low), I managed to book 3 trips for us at amazing prices.

I am writing this trip planning post from my room in Lake Como, Italy. I usually like to write about upcoming trips/ trip planning before we go away. However, due to an upcoming potential storm in the NY area, I was able to get my flight switched and we flew a day early.

We booked a really cheap, round trip flight to Milan with little intention to stay in the area. I started looking over a map of the area and came up with an ambitious (for traveling with a 2-year-old), Mini Euro-Roadtrip itinerary.

Swiss Airlines is giving away a “green” trip for 2 to Zurich which incudes airfare, hotel and many extras in a contest through Facebook.

This contest is of interest to me since we haven’t yet had the chance to visit Switzerland. We also have friends that live close to Zurich that we met on one of our trips to Africa and it would be nice to meet up!
