Last 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!We 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. 🙂We 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.Between 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
fun to watch this because i am from switzerland.
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
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 🙂
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,
Congratulations! And glad you had a fabulous time on your honeymoon.
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.
I am happy you enjoyed your honeymoon and I can’t wait to see more pics, feel free to overshare tbh
