For the Shopaholics: Swiss Outlet Shopping

I just wanted to share two things with you today. One, here is what it looks like in Au since our first snowfall yesterday. Oh yeah, and remember how Hercules is my main mode of transportation? Well, that means I must ride through the slush you see in the photo. Don't worry though, I've got some warm waterproof winter boots and a giant yellow rain poncho to protect me!

The other thing is that I am happy to inform you, if you didn't already know, there is a new factory outlet shopping center that just recently opened! It's called Alpenrhein Outlet Village and it's located near Chur. The best part? It's open on SUNDAYS!!!

Also, please enjoy some video footage from Monday's snowfall, taken around noon!


  1. The snow is so beautiful! I read about that outlet village in the newspaper. I made a note of it to go check it out!

  2. Awh. Pretty Au! Makes me wish I was back in Switzerland . . . the sludge does not!

  3. I took lots of pictures off my balcony the other day too. Just can't resist the first snowfall. :)

  4. So pretty! I just wouldn't want to have to ride my bike in it!

  5. Anneliese - Yes, it can make an otherwise dreary place look lovely! Not that Au is dreary...

    Tina - Hey you! This is the only time of year you will see pretty and Au in the same sentence.

    Romy - Definitely feel like a kid again. The sweetest part is talking to the Swiss who have lived here forever and are still charmed by the first snowfall. :)

    Fly Girl - yeah, the bike thing is certainly not my favorite part of snowy weather...


Thanks for stopping by. Words cannot express how much I appreciate your comments!
