A tiny part of Switzerland

St. Gallen is situated in the northeastern part of Switzerland in a valley about 700 meters (2,300 ft) above sea level. It is one of the highest cities in Switzerland and it often receives a lot of snow in winter. The city is pleasantly situated between Lake Constance and the mountains of the Appenzell Alps.

No I didn’t go to Switzerland but yes the gf did. Wy was on a working trip to a town that is now known as a service sector for it’s economic base according to wikipedia.I was urging her to send me photos of the place (because she is so not used to be the one having the thought of picking up the phone and taking a picture), I googled the place before she did.

Knowing that her pictures will never come to light, and it wouldn’t be a place we plan to visit in the near future or perhaps never, I’ve decided to share it here so you, my friends can see wtf she saw lol. The reason why the picture will never come to light is because she is definitely not a social media person. No twitter, dead instagram acct, no pinterest, no tumblr, no blog and an almost dead facebook account.

To be very frank, I was very pleased with the number of photos she came back with but since her old samsung wasn’t fantastic? Out of her 195 pictures, I only manage to pull 38 out which was decent. So here goes…

The pantry at her workplace has a really awesome salad corner.

Her one day trip to Munich. The New Town Hall. She caught the puppets moving at 12pm at a tiny view and wasn’t impressed haha.

She came back with pictures but no names because she forgot. -_- So I’m “visiting” this places with the help of Google. This is

She visited the very awesome looking Cuvilliés Theatre which unfortunately turned out really bad on her phone. Didn’t do justice to the place so here’s a picture of it from the web.

The Treasury in Munich Residenz looks really interesting with all the intricate gold pieces some with jewel embellishments. Too bad most of the phone pictures turned out blurry so visit this for more and be in awe like how I did.

Rounding off the post, I think I actually enjoyed doing up this post and googling around. It was still quite an eye opener even though I wasn’t physically present. Hopefully next time I or we (travel mates) get to tag along. Hehe.
