Mr. Owl’s Switzerland Journey Comes to an End – Part 4

We have been participating in the Around the Worldpress Amazing Race with some fellow bloggers. The race began from the genius idea over at Cyranny’s Cove. So far, Mr. Owl has traveled from Montreal, Canada to Michigan, USA to Xitang, China, and to my dear childhood friend in Lugano, Switzerland. My friend Shawna, and her daughter Sylvia, have written some lovely letters to share with us along with some fascinating photos! There are four parts to Mr. Owl’s journey in Switzerland. You can view Part One here, Part Two here, Part Three here, and today we enjoy the final, Part Four. ENJOY!

Hello again!!
It has been super fun to have Mr. Owl hang out with us, but he had to go on to the next place on his itinerary! I am going to miss this little owl, so I gave him a kiss goodbye. 🙂

He has travelled from Montreal, Canada to Michigan, USA; from Michigan, USA to Xitang, China; from Xitang, China to Lugano Switzerland; from Lugano, Switzerland to Campione, Como, and Varese Italy and then back to Lugano, Switzerland. This adds up to a whopping total of 12,177 miles/19,597 kilometers. His next destination is Tokyo, Japan where he will visit a fellow blogger at Wrestling with Faith – Dancing with Jesus. We will see what Mr. Owl is up to in Tokyo in the next post. 🙂

The money here is called Swiss francs and is abbreviated chf. One, two, and five francs are coins.

Paper francs start at ten; they are all colorful and pretty.
