Switzerland in iPhone Photos

Switzerland in iPhone photosLast week Trey and I went to Switzerland on our honeymoon! I think it was the farthest away from home that either of us has ever been. And I think that was part of the appeal. Plus we wanted to hike in the Swiss Alps, eat some good food and just enjoy a little corner of Europe together. We both LOVED Switzerland and had the best time!Switzerland honeymoon photosWe spent the first couple of days in Zurich. Such a beautiful city full of really kind people. We loved walking around Old Town, relaxing at the thermal bath & spa house and having the best meal of our lives at Wystube Isebähnli. Look them up if you're in the area. 🙂Emma and trey go to switzerlandWe spent most of our time in Engelberg, a small ski town. It was the last stop on our train ride. We stayed at the Ski Lodge. This was one of our very favorite hotels we've ever stayed in, so fantastic! The staff was super friendly, everything was decorated SO cool, breakfast was fantastic and the bar was super good with a really cool atmosphere. I really can't recommend it enough. Not to mention Engelberg was so cute, lots of breath-taking views with so many different areas to hike. The mountain hikes were absolutely unforgettable.A beautiful mess appBetween the two of us I think we took a little over 600 photos. I took my Canon 60D and Trey took his Canon Rebel t2i. We also snapped lots of photos with our iPhones. I will TRY not to over share on the photos but we probably will have to post at least a few more… It was such an amazing trip, one that I will never forget. I really can't express enough how lucky I have felt during this season of my life. I'm one lucky lady. xo. Emma (and Trey)

  • I was positively flabbergasted to read about your recent honey moon trip as I live in Zurich, but I am originally from Engelberg (my great grand mother’s house is just a few meters from the Ski Lodge you mentioned)!! I follow your inspiring and heart-warming blog for a long time now and think it’s very peculiar that you chose to visit all the places I know so well 🙂
    Keep ut the good work!

  • It ia amazing to discover that you were in my city! 🙂 I wish I crossed you! Next time You or Emma come by, let me invite you in my place! Xo ale

  • Before this post, I can honestly say that I never would have thought that Switzerland was a place I should put on my “travel to” list. Now it definitely is! Simple, beautiful photos. I’m in love.

  • How fun! I loved Switzerland, but forgot how much!! I definitely need to go back.

  • Hello! I love the app but the latest update free have some products that I had bought earlier. Does not seem right to pay before and now come standard free. I feel cheated

  • Oh my goodness, I can’t believe it…I live in Engelberg!! What a shame that I didn’t spot you two anywhere 🙁 boo! But yes, Switzerland is gorgeous and I would recommend Engelberg to anyone. I’m so glad you liked your trip!! xoxo

  • cute pictures..can’t wait to see more! So happy for you guys :9 <3


  • Wow! Stunning! Thank you for sharing these lovely photos from such an intimate time in your life. Cherish these times and be as present as possible – this is a season of your life that you’ll quite have again. And congrats to you and Trey! xx

    Hugs from LA,

  • Awesome photos! I love how they’re all edited with your app… It suits them so well! I love the one with the mountains. So perfect, and such a beautiful place! And I remember that spot where you have all the swans… When I was there in 2010, we sat there feeding them 🙂

  • Congratulations! And glad you had a fabulous time on your honeymoon.

  • Nice !

    Check out my new outfit post :

  • Scheisse!! You have been in my city and you didn’t tell me!! I was ready to cook Italian food for you! Remember for the next time, 😉 Ale from Zürich

  • So beautiful! You two are so lucky to be able to go to Switzerland for your honeymoon! Congrats!

  • it’s so weird to think you were in my country only a few days ago! Engelberg is really beautiful, it looks (and sounds) like you had a great time 🙂 Next time you stop by, you should visit my home town Lucerne, it’s a little smaller than Zürich and right on the edge of the alps, with a beautiful lake and old wooden bridges.

  • Looks beautiful! I was the same way on our honeymoon, I took wayyyy too many photos and really had to pick my favorites to share! Glad you had a great time 🙂

  • Looks like such a fun time!

  • Oh, what a special idea to come to Switzerland for honeymoon! I would never have thought about it… I’m swiss, living in Zürich and coming from Engelberg… I spend many holidays and weekends in Engelberg. So this post was very special fro me to read and it made me happy to hear that you liked it. Did you go to the “Härzlisee” at Brunni? The heart-shaped lake where you can walk around with naked feet and explore many different sensual adventures? Did you go to the “Rugghubel” mountain hut and had a sleepover there? This is magical… – And of course you went to Titlis and saw other Chinese couples in wedding dresses, yes? I’m eager to here more!

  • Haha I’m doing an internship here in Switzerland close to Zurich and I love it so much, my time here is almost over but I don’t want to leave and plan on living here in the future.

  • Happy to hear that you had a great trip! I love Switzerland, I went there a couple of years ago, since I have a friend who lives in Zürich. It’s not that far from Denmark though 🙂

  • OMG, I can’t believe you were here, in Switzerland !!

    You might be the first blogger who came to visit our country, it’s so funny to see your pictures, I can’t believe it 😀

    I really hope you enjoyed our mountains, that you tried the fondue and had some chocolate.

    If I had meet you in the streets, I think I wouldn’t have believed it 😉

    Cheers from Switzerland then !

  • Oh my, what a wonderful place for a honeymoon! I went to Switzerland about 8 years ago… I’m definitely due to go back. It’s such a breathtaking place…

  • Beautiful photos, sounds like you two had an amazing time, can’t wait to see more!


  • Beautiful pictures! I especially love the one of Trey with the camera in front of him. Breathtaking view!!

  • Switzerland has always been a place i would like to visit. You look like you had such a wonderful time!!! x


  • Congratulations on your wedding and what a fabulous place to honeymoon!

  • Wow, sounds like you had a fantastic time. Love that you chose to go somewhere that wasn’t a typical tropical island destination for your honeymoon. Switzerland is gorgeous, isn’t it? All that fresh air. Will definitely check out those places you recommended.

  • Such lovely photos! Switzerland is a beautiful place – we’ve often gone skiing there 🙂 What a great idea for a honeymoon.


  • We recently went there and hiked along the wine trail- stunning country.

  • Feel free to “over share”! Those photos are great! Looks like y’all had a fantastic time.

  • Hey! what a surprise to know you went to my country for honeymoon!!! 😉
    Glad you had a great time!

    P.S. I love your smartphone app! ^_^

  • The swans look so cute! I really wish I was there

    Seaside Beauty

  • I’ve never thought about traveling to Switzerland, probably because it’s not too far away for me (I’m from Germany). But your snapshots look so amazing!

  • That looks like a beautiful vacation indeed!
    And it’s actually really funny to see such photos on your blog, because usually most of the photos show rather typical american places and stuff, while I’m quite used to the Switzerland scenery as I live in Germany and go there mostly at least once a year (or travel at least through in a southward direction) 🙂 It must have been as special for you as the US was for me when I traveled there (only once until now, sadly) or when I see your usual pictures!
    You look so happy, keep it that way – I wish you all the best!

  • Oh, how I love “Schweiz”. I was there several times, but hey: easy for me as I live in Europe. 😉

  • watching your honeymoon pictures makes me realize how much i miss my home country! i’m looking forward to going back home soon :-)!

  • So glad you had a nice time. I am frm switzerland (living in England) and reading this made me homesick. Xxx

  • Can’t wait to see more pictures! love to hear how you experienced Switzerland and what you liked/disliked/found fascinating/or strange 🙂

    best wishes from Switzerland.

    (this post was really a reminder to myself, how blessed and lucky I am to be Swiss and live in such a beautiful scenery)

  • so beautiful! i’ve been to the zurich airport! ha. the closest i’ve been to switzerland. we were on our way to italy. looks like i should have stopped for a couple days!

  • Oh looked like a wonderful trip and seriously loved that you used your own App to do editing on these photos!! 🙂

  • Your honeymoon adventure looks fantastic, Emma! Thanks for sharing some snapshots, I enjoyed the vicarious vacation while sipping some coffee this morning. Congratulations to you and Trey on your marriage! 🙂

  • Movenpick ice cream, so beautiful it makes your heart hurt, and cows with pink bells….. My favorite.
