Each Sunday we go on an adventure as a family – usually somewhere in nature. In the winter you can find us sledding or skiing and in summer we typically spend Sundays swimming at the lake. But in spring and fall we like to explore and Switzerland does not disappoint in the abundance of opportunities to get out and enjoy nature. Last weekend we made a short 30 minute drive to the Gruyere region to the Gorge of the Jogne – a lovely walk that took us along the Jogne River, through stone tunnels, across suspension bridges, past waterfalls and up, up, up to a beautiful dam or barrage as it is called in French. There is something special about the light in Gruyere, probably because the area opens up a bit and the mountains are softer and less dramatic. We spent three hours hiking and exploring and returned to the river for a campfire and cookout into the evening.
Even after living here for almost two years, I am still in awe of my new home country. I take hundreds and hundreds of photos each week because I am hungry to capture every moment of our life here and the opportunities we have to travel in Europe. I hope you enjoy these little travelogs and feel like you are having an adventure too. xxoo Kate.
