Bern, Switzerland: The Temple

This is such a welcoming sight, no matter where you are in the world:
Immediately after landing in Germany, we skipped lunch, picked up our rental car and began to make the 5-hour drive to the Bern Switzerland Temple.
We were supposed to make it with an hour to spare but got stuck in crazy rush hour traffic in the French countryside. Who would've thought?
By the time we finally made it to the Temple, we were fifteen minutes too late. We'd tried SO hard to make it and were a little disappointed at first, before realizing that visiting the Temple was still the perfect way to start our European honeymoon. The grounds were so beautiful and peaceful, and it was nice to be on the opposite side of the world and still feel at home.

(Plus, it was only Day 1 and we already had an excuse to go back!)


  1. Those temple grounds are BEAUTIFUL. Ash I stalk your blog. You guys are adorable. I was just telling Nicole how excited I am when you post.

  2. What a fabulous way to start your honeymoon. Kenneth and I always go to the temple on our anniversary to help us remember what it's all about. What a great reason to go back someday!

  3. I have been waiting for these pics! Graf Land, oh it is a beautiful and welcome sight. We need to take Grandpa over there and let him climb into some of those Mtns. He well be amazed!

  4. ok, what camera do you guys have? those pictures are so awesome and the colors are so vibrant! maybe it's just the shock from the dull colors in utah...but seriously, beautiful!

  5. Thanks for all the great advice! He is looking into both the reserves and active duty air force. I think he wants to get a pilot spot but he would be open to a few other things. He just got ahold of the recruier today for the air force and they wont be doing any hiring until March. He is still trying to get a hold of the reserves guy. (he is out of town until Nov 12th) Yes, he is planning on going in as an officer for sure! I might give you a call once he talks to the reserves guy if we need more info.
    Thanks again!!
    ps-Love the new pics of the temple, it looks like fairy tale! :)

  6. Em-We just have a little Canon point-and-shoot (SD870 IS--like an 1100), and we have a bit of a love-hate relationship with it! Sometimes, when the lighting is perfect--like that gorgeous sunny day in France/Switzerland--it does a great job. But other times it struggles in darker situations and puts random white spots in the pictures. We keep meaning to get it fixed but the repair would take 3 weeks, and who can go that long without a camera??

    Someday when we either 1-have a baby or 2-go back to Europe (whichever happens first), we're going to upgrade :-)
