Jack and I lived in Moscow and Northern Ireland in the 90's. When he retired we came home to Illinois and were happy to be here but missed all of Europe. That was the beginning of 12 great years of travel together. We saw a lot of the US, had a home on the beach in Florida for some winter visits and got to Europe almost every year for a few weeks. We liked to travel by train and a little apartment in Interlaken Switzerland was our favorite. The lady that rented it to us has become a wonderful friend. With most trips we would manage to tack on a few days in Interlaken even if the trip hadn't otherwise included Switzerland.
It was a wonderful time and we never regretted a single trip.
