I’ve been doing nothing and it feels great.
We’ve been spoiling the children and really just hanging out. We did take a daytrip to Switzerland for Mother’s Day and our 5 year anniversary. It’s a little over a two hour drive to Lucerne. We wanted to see the Kapellbrücke (chapel bridge) which is Europe’s oldest wooden bridge. It was built in 1333 and is one of Switzerland’s main tourist attractions.
Lucerne is beautiful. There is much to see and do there. We had a wonderful and relaxing day walking around the city. We did get stuck in the rain for the last part of the visit around Lucerne but it was just part of the fun.
We didn’t spend alot of money on food. We bought bread and ham to eat on the way. In Lucerne, we ate a yummy bratwurst with mustard and a hard bread roll. It just goes to show you that it’s not money that makes a trip. It’s discovery and adventure.
Switzerland is just charming and modern in one beautiful package. My husband and I have fallen in love with Switzerland. We are thinking of looking for jobs in Switzerland (the French speaking part) while still living in France. With my banking background I think I could find a job in Switzerland once my French is stronger. Switzerland pays about the double of what you can earn in France. It’s a thought.
It’s our dream to live in France near the Switzerland border. We would have France and Switzerland with Italy only a few hours away. It just can’t get much better than that!
