It’s Sunday – I think….
It’s May – I think….
But it definitely feels like it’s time for a trip back down memory lane to a visit to stunning Switzerland.
That building below The Matterhorn has always been a place of my dreams. Since I came across it, I have always thought that would be my dream location for my home. Maybe one day.
May 1st is a public holiday in some parts of Switzerland. On this memory journey we had headed off on the 1st to a Canton which celebrates the holiday. It’s a day for celebrating worker rights. In the town we visited all the shops had closed for the day. We watched a workers march. A very Swiss march. As they walked they picked up any litter and a few started weeding flower beds. After the march the celebrations continued with a super friendly music festival. While watching the music I sampled my first ever roesti (potato cake). What had I been missing all those years.
Sadly no photos of that day as I had run out of film for my camera (remember those days?). I’m sure if I had asked the nearest Swiss person in the crowd that they would have quickly found me a new film – it’s that sort of place.
Fortunately I eventually fed the camera and I still have photos from that holiday. Stunning walks through ancients forests set amongst the might Alps.
Leisurely boat trips across the stunning lakes.
The ever changing colours.
Glimpses of some of the worlds most iconic mountains.
The staggering water colours.
Sights and sounds which are so Swiss.
And of a toddler having the best ever time. Thank you Switzerland.
