Did I ever tell you that Isaiah's work colleagues all pitched in to send us on a private flight over the Rhine Valley before we left Switzerland? It was so thoughtful of them and certainly a unique, memorable gift.
It was the perfect Saturday morning, just a week before our departure back to the States, when we met our pilot, a full-time commercial pilot and part-time recreational pilot, at the local airport (St. Gallen-Altenrhein). The flight lasted about an hour, and we flew over Säntis, near the pre-Alps of Graubünden, over our apartment, and past the Open-Air music festival in St. Gallen.
Isaiah even got to take control of the plane for a bit, though we had a close call with another prop plane. Yikes!

To this day, we feel so blessed to have met the people we met. We're so thankful for their kindness and look forward to returning to the Valley for a visit someday soon...
