Iceland to Turkey, Spain to Estonia

I’ve been busy, in Oct I started with Iceland, went on to England, France, Germany , Netherlands , Switzerland , with a two month stay in Turkey.

Then I flew back north and decided to go to Baltic states in the middle of winter , yes it cold but beautiful.

so I drove from Cologne Germany via the autobahn, to Leipzig , then thru Poland, Lithuania  , Latvia and I am now in Estonia, heading back south.

The Matterhorn

Nur at the top of the alps

If you don’t know Matterhorn I’m not sure what you have been doing.  It is a large, near-symmetrical pyramidal peak in the extended Monte Rosa area of the Pennine Alps, whose summit is 4,478 metres (14,692 ft) high, making it one of the highest summits in the Alps and Europe.[note 3] The four steep faces, rising above the surrounding glaciers, face the four compass points and are split by the Hörnli, Furggen, Leone, and Zmutt ridges. The mountain overlooks the Swiss town of Zermatt.  I’m staying in Zermatt.
