In 2016 we shared many travel photos.  Here are the top 10 travel images from destinations around the world.  These photos were featured on our social channels that started before our official launch of SomedayTrips.com this year.  Deciding on the top 10 is sort of a crowd-sourced exercise using Instagram, which somewhat skews the results as the account grows, so we are also going to share some honorable mentions.

Here are twenty reasons why you should travel to Blausee Nature Park. Nestled in the Swiss Alps this park is a remarkable sight and easily accessible by those on a road trip through Switzerland. We have seen beautiful pictures of Lake Moraine in Canada and other famous lakes around the world but there is something very special about how this lake exists and the clarity of its water.

In our Five day dream trip to Switzerland we included Blausee as one of our destinations.  We had previously been in Bern Switzerland and were making our way to Brig which required us taking a car train through the Alps.  Blausee is on the road from the Interlaken region to this train and therefore easy to add to your intinerary.  

Here are the twenty reasons why Blausee should be a travel destination you consider for Switzerland.  It was raining when we capturing many of these photos unfortunately, but the park still provided plenty of beauty despite the weather.

Transport yourself to beautiful Blausee, the Blue Lake, an unbelievably stunning emerald blue lake in the Kander Valley of Switzerland.  It's a popular tourist destination for those traveling in the Bernese Oberland region of Switzerland. 

On our recent road trip through the Swiss Alps from Bern to Brig on a very rainy day, we almost didn't visit this lake because of the weather, but we decided to make the stop anyway, and we were very glad we did.  When we arrived at the park, the large Blausee sign and small building belied the beauty of what was there.  Umbrella, raincoat and camera in hand, I quickly took a walk down the path ahead of my husband, who was hauling all the camera gear, to make sure there was something worth seeing. 

What is the best 5-day trip to see the beautiful country of Switzerland?  It depends on what you want to see but this itinerary will give you a start on our trip through central Switzerland.  Our goals were to see a few UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the beautiful Alps, and both city and rural life.  For many we would highly recommend that you travel through Switzerland on their train system.  Many would say it is the best in Europe with second class being close to first class in other European countries.  The Swiss Travel Pass and the beautiful panoramic views you can get by traveling by train make the decision even easier.  For our travels we blended train and automobile so that we had the flexibility to get where we needed to for our photography and video.
