Switzerland is one of those places that I have dreamed of visiting for years. Photos of the Swiss countryside are plastered all over my old vision board (probably still hanging in front of mom and dad’s treadmill). When it was -40 and I was plugging away on the treadmill, I’d put on my upbeat classical music and pretend I was running through the Swiss mountains (guys, I don’t even care how nerdy of an admission that is…it got me through the winter).
The 4 days we had in the country were nowhere near long enough to get my fill… if anything it just whet my whistle and made me want to book another trip ASAP! What a beautiful (and expensive) country.
Our friends have started a coffee van! How adorable is Archie!?One wee boy lost his ball in the frigid water so this kind soul waded out to help him…Reactions of the onlookers (guilty little boy on the left, laughing bros on the right)…It was quite foggy Friday and Saturday but even that couldn’t hide the beauty…I can only imagine how much more spectacular this would be when the terraced vineyards have all blossomed.Sunday laughs with a darling little lady…What dreams are made of. Stunning view.On Monday, we did a quick hike partway up the mountainside. The sun finally came out and we enjoyed a crisp, clear view of the scenery.A cute mountainside church’s interior.Love this little tour guide and her hospitable fam!Coffee in a nearby town after our hike.Paris airport…And soon we were home again home again. I didn’t do a very good job describing all of the lovely people that hosted and welcomed us but it sure makes a country even sweeter when that’s the case (as it was for us this trip).
Til next time Switzerland ❤ Hopefully next time I visit it’s on the back of my husband’s motorbike!
