The Chocolate Factory (Old Town Bern Switzerland)

The featured image was taken in Old Town Bern, Switzerland during a trip in 2005 to visit our good friends at their Twann summer home.  Their summer home is in a small vineyard area nestled along the grape fields in historic Twann just a short drive from Bern.  The image of the house below below is from Twann while the featured image and other images below are from Bern.


Though, they had a city apartment in Bern, most of our trip was centered from Twann.   The two following picture came from the Old Town section of Bern where along the Aar River.   The Old Town was restored in the 18th century but thankfully kept it’s original old world charm.  This is one of my favorite images, The Chocolate Factory, and I’ve a framed one of it in my guest bathroom.   When looking back at this picture it’s hard to image that there is a large current day metropolitan city surrounding it.

From our home base in Twann we toured all over Switzerland, visited the Alps and a went Castle hopping throughout France.  I’ve been browsing through the pictures and hope to share others in the future.

Lets talk about the two sides of me. I am a Gemini just so you know. The first side of me is the cooking and entertaining part. This is a major part of my life and I wouldn't be fulfilled without it. Of course, we all have to eat, but the main part of cooking for me is entertaining and sharing fun and flavorful foods with great friends. Dinner parties, happy hours and well, most anything to do with food is where I begin to enjoy. My other side, the artsy side is a craving for art, painting and photography. Maybe this is my Gemini left side of the brain?? Since starting to write a Blog I've picked back up what hubby calls my big ass camera and started carting it around again. He’s always afraid I will ask him to carry it. I keep thinking that when I retire (?#&*!!!) that I will have time to read all the photography books in my library and become a superb photographer. Wishful thinking.

  1. Maui Shack | KC in AZ - November 11, 2013

    […] Upon returning home it was with at least 20 rolls of film in hand. I still have the negatives from that trip but the one for the Maui Shack was lost. This picture is a picture of a picture since I had the negative enlarged at print. Still, for some reason I loved it so much that after learning how to use Photoshop I went about recreating it to hang in the bathroom along with The Chocolate Factory. […]


I'm looking forward to hearing from you..
