Northern Switzerland’s best kept secret is a charming medieval city nestled along the Upper Rhine River, home to the Munot Fortress and several baroque style buildings. The city of Schaffhausen is just as much captivating, as it is beautiful.
Sunsets here are rather amazing! If you ever get the chance, you should go. Until then, enjoy my sunset photo tour around Schaufhaussen. Take a deep breath now because these images are quite incredible.
We took to the city by foot. Found a familiar place for parking, as my friend had been here many times.
We walked along the Rhine river, watching geese and birds, as boats and bicycles pass us by.
After exploring the riverside, we went up! On our way to Munot Fortress, we passed homes and livestock grazing in the beautiful sunset. Huffing and puffing, almost there!
Curious where this ferry may take me? A joy ride on the Rhine River sounds mighty fine!
Made it to the top! Now looking over city, where we had already walked and spotting our next destination in the distance.
It took a bit longer than expected to find, so the sun had tucked away for the night before I could get a shot. The facade on the exterior of the Haus zum Ritter features one of the most important Renaissance frescoes north of the Alps.
Heading back to our vehicle. The Rhine River again, in all it’s glory. Twinkling and dancing in last little beams from the sun.
I was impressed with the floral around the city. For November, and rather cool weather, the flowers were abundant!
The herd of deer here were the highlight for the younger ones with us. Kept fenced in at Munot Fortress, it adds an element of natural preservation and honestly, felt a little like home!
I’m always looking for hidden gems, what other cities have you found to be breathtaking?
Timber framed homes scattered throughout the curving cobblestone streets and the River Ill is never too far away!
Strasbourg was one of those cities that came as a complete surprise. It turned out to be so much more incredible than I ever imagined and totally exceeded my expectations!
If all that hasn’t convinced you to visit this German border city, then these fabulous fall photos from Strasbourg, France definitely will!
When visiting another country, like UAE, it’s very important to consider the culture, religion, practices and rituals. Even more important is respecting those beliefs, even if they may differ from your own.

China has a very interesting culture and history. Just like anywhere in the world – there’s some things you absolutely love and some things you could really do without. So here’s what you can expect when heading to China!
Ancient cities are all throughout China! There are so many incredible buildings and monuments, many dating all the way back to 600AD, like the Tianning Tower. Today, it is still standing and functioning, and has been for over 1400 years. Just imagine if those walls could talk!
As soon as you arrive to Mackinac Island, a map will be your best friend. They’re easy to find at the Visitors Center, Tourism Bureau, your hotel front desk/concierge, stores and restaurants. Unless you’ve lived on the island your whole life, you’re going to be lost without a map. I highly recommend getting one before you head out.
