Aaaah. Who would have thought that you can get immediate holiday feeling by only going 3 hours away? Rainy weekend in Zurich? HA! Not with us! How do sunshine, red wine, open fire, local cheese, glittering water, italian ice-cream, roman bridges, picturesque stone cottages, high mountains and dinner in the evening sun sound?
Much better, I agree. Just one weekend, yet the feeling of leaving the daily routine far, far behind. I would have never expected it, but as soon as you cross the Gotthard, you enter a completely different world. The architecture changes, the language changes, the food and the way of living changes…yet it’s still Switzerland.
For now just a few pictures, and more about Ticino during the next days.
Gotthard Pass…the gate to the south 🙂
welcome aperitif – cheese from the village nearby (that’s how cheese should look like!!)
dinner on the terrace
….and a good glass of wine while enjoying the evening sun and the view over the valley…that’s life!
Familial entropy - that's an insight into our current life which has been fundamentally changed last summer when our daughter was born. Having studied in Cottbus, Germany, and worked/studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, we momentarily live in a small town in Switzerland where Karsten is trying to save the environment and Freddie is trying to save our sanity. Since there is not much time for elaborate, long emails while doing that, we thought a blog might be a good option to smuggle ourselves into the lifes of our friends.
