You might have realised by now. I’m kinda fond of Switzerland. Is started when I was young. As a teenager I was seemingly stuck in a North East English seaside town. Surrounded by pollution and poverty. The world seemed so far out of reach. Yet virtually every Saturday morning I spent so many hours looking at the photos in a battered old climbing book. One of the few interesting books in the town’s rundown library. The book was a gateway to a far off wonderland called Switzerland. Fast forward many years and regular family holidays confirming just how amazing this wonderland was in reality. The perfect location for adventures and living out big dreams.

It’s now been 6 years since my last visit. It does feel like a far off land these days. But I need to go back. I need to experience Switzerland again. I need to remind myself that this world is still a place of wonder.

      1. That’s the island I had my pony 🐴 and cart from, given to me (in the tradition of lend between islanders). For the man was going to learn how to make violins in London. The cart was a flat back, that tipped up while still attached, so as to collect seaweed 🌿 for his garden.

  1. For every day that passes by, you’ll be one day closer to visit Switzerland again! Thank you for (as always) stunning photos from this beautiful country.


  2. Do you have friends there or contact with anyone who has been more recently? I haven’t heard that anything has changed and I don’t see why it should, but sometimes we retain an image of a place we liked only to be crushed with disappointment. I don’t think that will be the case with you, but it is worth keeping in the back of your mind. It is certainly a place one could idealize. I hope you don’t mind my saying this?


  3. Ahhh… yes, much better!! It was 33C today and very humid! Yucky hot and those gorgeous views are exactly what I needed! Water, mountains and even a rainbow… three of my favorite things!

    Thanks for a Hat Trick of joy!💌💌💌💌

    P.S. if you don’t make it to Switzerland before I run away from home, be prepared to be kidnapped😉
