Welcome to TipTopSwiss366

Welcome to my new 366 project - TipTopSwiss366.

This year I will be taking inspiration from my new surroundings and posting a picture of something Swiss each day. I see new things all the time so I'll be sharing some of those with you as well as some of the typically Swiss things that amuse annoy and baffle me.

Why TipTopSwiss? Well, I soon learned that there were a few words that I would hear - and understand! - every day, and 'tip top' is one of them. It's a commonly used phrase of agreement and approval in Swiss German, and I thought it was a good choice for the title of this blog.

As an added bonus, each day I shall be posting a 'word of the day' in one of the official languages of Switzerland - Swiss German, French, Italian and Romansch. (Thanks to Mark Pentleton for this great idea!)
So to start us off, here's a little 'welcoming' word cloud!


You'll have to wait until tomorrow for the first post, but in the meantime, you can check out my last few posts on 2011's project Window on my world 365, or look back to 2010 and Trees365.
