Whew! Sorry for not writing sooner. We’ve been on the go in 2019! More about that later. This postcard comes from high in the hills of Liechtenstein.
This little country is phenomenally beautiful, nestled as it is in the Alps. Not only is the country tiny geographically, it is only home to about 38,000 people. We both liked it immediately. “Do you think they need English teachers?” Jenia asked me. Triesenberg is outside the capital city of Vaduz, up hill via narrow, winding roads, and as far as we could tell, there might be as many cows in pastoral Triesenberg as people. We hiked one of the numerous trails in the morning, and not only did we get to admire the scenery, we also got a chance to hear the sounds of the outdoors–that is, the usual outdoor sounds, plus the gentle ringing of cowbells from thither and yon, all around, on the green hillsides and in the valley below. For us, it was a magical and unique Europe moment.
As we were settling into our room at the Berggasthaus Sucka, we opened the shutters and found that the sky was clouding over. Or rather, the fog was rolling in through mountains, and the stunning view was on its way to being obscured. We grabbed the camera and shot this photo while the blue sky was still visible.
Sorry for writing so much on a meager little Wednesday Postcard–but we really did find the mountain beauty of Liechtenstein enchanting and think it’s worth writing about!
