Ten years ago this month, my husband and I took a spontaneous trip to Switzerland.
I was utterly enchanted by this exquisite country. So clean, so orderly, such reliable public transportation! I was sad to leave such a beautiful place and we both vowed to return the following summer.
It’s been a decade and I still ache to visit Switzerland. The air smells sweet – like grass and flowers and…well, oxygen I guess. It’s delightful even if you don’t think much about oxygen. The people are pleasant (how could they not be, living where they do?) and the homes in the village where we stayed were kept lovingly with gardens overflowing with flowers. A rafting trip was my one credit to not being a wuss for a change and the river emptied into a lake so clear and blue it felt like…what can I say without being cheesy…it was heavenly. Truly, it was. But cold!
It’s a destination I’d feel comfortable taking my kids and beside just soaking up the culture, there are endless excursions for the whole family.
