It’s Sunday so it’s must be time for our weekly trip to beautiful Switzerland. A country which we haven’t been able to visit in a few years but which still holds a special place in our hearts.

Someone asked why we love this country so much. Well the first thing is that is has so many links to our Hawklad. His mum’s family have had links to the country for nearly 80 years now. That’s so important to our son.

Another reason is how the Swiss villages just look so perfect in the alpine landscape.

Another reason is the country’s beautiful lakes. They have a magical quality.

Another reason is those walks through the wooded mountain valleys. They are simply breathtaking.

We hardly get much snow these days where we live. The excitement of coming to land where the snow is always there. Even in summer.

The mountains are nothing short of epic.

Finally its not a bad place for an 8 year old to have breakfast.

  1. I’ve only ever lived in the Alps for a short time, but the impression it gave me of the true sense of smallness will never leave me. The most memorable for the sheer size, was the day I took a walk from a friends flat in Rue Paul Valรฉry, Grenoble, France, turning left and looking up at the mountain took my breath away. The other was looking across the valley from one mountain to t’other, with the mist in between making both sides look like islands. Humans really are like ants when in the presence of mountains, aren’t they.

  2. I love your photographs! I especially like the one with the cows in the meadow at the base of the mountain. And that pic of Hawklad is gorgeous – such a handsome little dude! Thank you for taking me along to beautiful Switzerland once again. x

  3. Hi. Another great set of images. I seem to have been unfollowing you for a while; must have clicked something incorrectly; though there have been WP glitches with my site; thanks to Carol’s blog, I’ve found you again; and, now following once more. Have a wonderful day. Best Regards.
