Swiss Dreams

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.

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!
