We’ve been in Davos, Switzerland for almost a week. I’ve been attending the Research in Engineering Education Symposium, and my husband has been hiking his little feet off. Before the conference, we had a gorgeous day of hiking, including past this meadow. The flowers are spectacular, as are the rest of the mountain views. At the end of this hike was a little restaurant, along with a bunch of cheerful Bavarians who bought us local beer and taught us the prost song.

I’ll blog about the conference (along with the NWSA conference from mid-June) once I get back to the States. Tomorrow we’re off to Paris then England for a few days. Ciao for now!

    Where is Julie Andrews when you need her for a photo?

    (Yes I realize it’s Switzerland, not Austria, but the meadow reminds me of the movie scene.)

    Wish I was there! Two of my bestest mates live in Davos and were likely at said conference…
