Virtual Spring Break: Switzerland

Excited? Maybe. But--whatever the reality--I thought it'd be fun to hang a few photos (borrowed from Photobucket or elsewhere--we'll compare my photos once we return) re our 99% certain trip (got the flights, hotels, car; pretty much locked into the somewhat "literary" itinerary--e.g., hope to get to Frisch's Berzona) to Switzerland. Let's see what I can find.

We fly into Stuttgart, Germany, and I plan to make a little stop, heading south, near (and within view of) the Hohenzollern Castle:



Then we head to Zurich to see something of what Celan saw from the Hotel zum Storchen:

Then on to Locarno (see below) and Berzona (see earlier posts re this shier village and the Frisch connection):

Next stop: Montreux and Nabokov's grave (maybe I'll shoot Freddie Mercury if he's convenient):







After two days in Montreux we'll head back to Stuttgart, possibly making a detour through the Schwarzwald for fairy tales and Celan/Heidegger (Todtnauberg):
