It’s early Sunday here in Yorkshire yet my thoughts are drifting to a country a 1000 miles away. A country which I haven’t managed to visit for nearly 6 years now. But it’s still very much on my heart. On our little families heart. A place with so many happy times for my son. One of the most stunning lands on our wonderful planet. Time for a bit of Alpine Heaven. Time for Switzerland.

I’m now seeing those mountains and those lakes. The mesmerising landscapes. I’m hearing the peaceful sounds of this land. Relaxing running water. Often the only other sound is the distinctive ringing of cow and church bells. Other than that it’s the sound of silence.

One day I will hopefully return. I hope you will join me as well.

  1. A million times THANK YOU!! I do so look forward to Swiss Sunday on Saturday Night! I somehow always forget it’s Saturday night until I see your post too🤪 I really shouldn’t be left unsupervised 😉

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen real grass so green. Houses in my neighborhood are opting for astroturf, and it can be that color, but real grass?? Never seen that color.

    Water and mountains and even a rainbow🌈 and beautiful flowers too. I can see why you love it so much… absolutely awe inspiring landscape. I’m soooo looking forward to seeing NEW pictures from your next trip!💌💌💌💌

  2. Cow bells! I actually remember them. Ah to lie in the lovely green grass looking up into the blue and just hear those sounds. I can smell the fresh mountain air too and feel the slight chill in the wind blowing off the snow-clad mountains. Wonderful!

      1. We flew into Zurich. We used public transport. The first full day we took a bus tour that took us through the mountains, we stopped at a chocolate factory and went to the mountain that has Heidi’s house (we didn’t walk to the house). The next full day we took the train to Lucerne-it was Easter Sunday and most shops were closed. But we watched the swans on the lake, crossed the museum bridge, and walked up the stone staircase to a fort/lookout. Even though cloudy we got a good view. Just after we got down it started to rain just a bit and the clouds covered the mountains. We left the next morning.
