It’s Sunday so it must be time for our weekly trip to beautiful Switzerland. We haven’t been able to go back there recently but it’s still a country which means so much to our family.

As a child I would visit the local library most Saturday mornings. I would spend a couple of hours reading books while sat next to the libraries little goldfish pond. One of my favourite books was an old book on climbing. Lots of pictures of a dreamlike country called Switzerland. It just seemed like a different world to a young lad from a grey and rundown Yorkshire seaside town. I so wanted to go there. Many years later I got my wish. See dreams can come true.

Flying towards Geneva and seeing The Alps for the first time was awe inspiring. Then the next seven days confirmed just how special this country.

It’s that good that photographs just can’t come close to capturing how beautiful and epic it is. Simply breathtaking.

So I will keep dreaming that soon our family can return there. Because dreams can come true.

  2. Oh how I needed this Swiss visit tonight! Would that I had the money to buy a small chalet on a mountainside, far from the madding crowd, and just bask in the beauty of the mountains, the countryside. I will cross my fingers that you and your son get back there soon! Hugs!

      1. If only I could, I would be gone in a heartbeat. I am looking into it, but nothing is ever simple, is it? Money, of course, is one BIG hurdle, and many borders are closed to us because of the pandemic. And … it seems most countries want refugees who can contribute something … I have little to contribute. Sigh.

      2. You can be like the rest of, start formulating your exit plan now!! I have no intention of watching this country continue it’s slide to being the 2nd “Hitler’s Germany”, nor sticking around for a civil war.

      3. Sad, isn’t it? Those fears are very real and very strong for me. I’d say the Hitler one is more likely as younger generations have little understanding if it and, like me, no visible interest in going to war the current issues… no attachment to any idea of what a country should stand for. It seems easier to simply flee to one that seems less insane.

      4. I’ve been pondering that exit plan for 4 years now, but … there are so many obstacles, money being the primary one. I don’t see a civil war happening, for there are no lines of demarcation, no Mason-Dixon line. I do, however, see increased violence and I definitely see Trump declaring himself a dictator if he actually wins another term in office.
