The honeymoon is over... ;)

To somewhat continue from my previous post about moving to Switzerland...

We actually were back in Switzerland this past Summer (we had previously been there three years prior for our honeymoon). This trip was to see if we had rose coloured glasses on before....we wanted to see the actual reality of living day to day there....with a toddler....ahem. 

We definitely got a reality check....it rained 10 out of the 14 days we were there. BUT! lo' and behold...we still want to move there....even after a not so relaxing "vacation".

Gone were the days of drinking wine at every meal....quiet conversation meals that lasted hours...warm meals....relaxing meals that you ate too much at and then had a leisurely stroll after or nap.....afternoon naps were the best.....sighhhhh.... ;) 

You know what though? We still did a lot. We traveled all over the place and had fun. We did stop at every f%$k*ng playground in existence along the way...but we had fun. And it definitely gave us a good perspective on living abroad with a child. 

I shall now overload you with photos of our last trip there.... :) 

*Another bonus about Switzerland? The amazing beautiful playgrounds they have, the great parks, zoos, & badis (swimming areas)....very kid friendly. The Zurich airport also has an AMAZING baby/kid area....if you are ever stuck there for long periods of time....find it and go there! It was a life saver!

Zurich zoo...


Awesomeness found at a playground...it was BIG hit!

Switzerland...cows included.

Waiting patiently for the train...

At the Badi (kid's area)

Not a fan of the big noisy trains....

  1. I am in love with their play grounds. That swing is amazing. I'm saving that pic in hopes of recreating it under a big tree someday! Just found your blog - excited to follow it!
