The Principality of Liechtenstein (German: Fürstentum Liechtenstein) is a tiny, landlocked microstate in Western Europe, bordered by Switzerland to its west and by Austria to its east.
Mountainous, it is a winter sports resort, and is perhaps best-known as a tax haven.
It is also the only German-speaking country which does not share a border with Germany.

About Wikipedia

This information was correct in October 2005. E. & O.E.

Sarolta and I visited Liechtenstein and Vaduz in 1978 and I just could't lay my hands on the photos we have taken at the time.

At the time, in 1978 colour slides were very popular and usually were shown at the end of the trip at the family gatherings.

Technology have changed over the years and I have troubl;e finding a satisfactory way to scan slides to digital images.

Due to the difficulties to scanning slides, I don't even know whether I have slides of Liechtenstein.

So, for now I have to be - and also you - satisfied with my photos from our 2005 visit to Liechtenstein and Vaduz.

Hui Chin and I enjoyed ourselves in Vaduz in 2005, although we had to run for shelter a couple of times, because of the heavy rain.
