Today we are off to Switzerland! So excited to see the beautiful Swiss mountains. We got up early this morning and got ready, had a yummy breakfast in the hotel and got on our way to the train station.

We have tried so hard to save money, but it is impossible. It's no fun to skip eating at a restaurant and buying food at a grocery store, only to realize that we spent 80% of the restaurant cost.
