This week’s feature is a beautiful Switzerland travel story from film photographer Marley Bosshardt. Captured on 35mm film, Marley explored the Switzerland countryside with its incredible mountaintops and charming towns. Here is more from Marley about her time in Switzerland…

I took my daughter Abigail, age 13, to travel around Switzerland. We had stayed with extended family as a home base in Geneva. We were able to travel on a Swiss Pass which covered all forms of transport (trust me there are a lot) for the price of just one adult (children under 16 were free).

The wonderful thing about Switzerland is that you are able to travel to a city and back by train in the span of less than one day. We found this to save on lodging expenses. We did spend a few overnights in Murren in the Berner Oberland Region.

Murren is the most magnificent place I have ever been. I felt as if I had been transported to the Heavenlies. The mountains are larger than life, and all you can see are the snow-capped tops! We changed transport 12 different times on our way to Murren and then farther up the mountain to the Pitz Gloria. We lived on Lipton Peach Iced Tea and turkey sandwiches.

Later in our trip, we traveled to the Graubunden region of Switzerland where they speak Romansh, which is similar to original Latin. We hiked into the mountains and rented Trotinettes (scooters) from a remote hut and held on for dear life as we scooted at terrifying speeds around the mountain trails! I will never forget Switzerland.
