Thank you so much for reading another of my travel posts✈️🌍. I have been wandering around a lot recently and I can’t wait to share my thoughts about the place I visited last week. Without any further delay, let’s get into it!5/10/19 Saturday, Lausanne: National park- Parc Gruyére had been on my bucket list for a while but I wasn´t sure where exactly to go… And then my other half came and decided instead of me so we just put the name Chateau d´Oex in the GPS and hit the road… It took us less than 2 hours to get there from Lausanne and the landscapes we saw on the way were simply breathtaking. As soon as we reached the park, the air changed, cows appeared and that moment, I knew I saw the real Switzerland:)…We stopped to see this little waterfalls and an amazing turqouise lake on the way. Look at that colour of the lake! Maldives can be really ashamed!A bit personal but cute smiley pic of me and my love/ travel buddy… We just loved this trip from the beginning to an end.One thing I always notice when travelling is the architecture and these wooden cottages really got under my skin. I just wanted to photograph them and admire.So pretty, isn´t it?For those of you who didn´t know, the first hot-air balloon flight around the world started its journey in this village and took 20 days. They flew almost 43,000 km. Absolutely marvellous!Back to our trip… In the middle of the village, there is a small church on a hill with a fountain and a cute squirrel sculpture.And a clock tower of course.This is a view from the area around the church.So picturesque, you want to stay there and live!Fog in the back but smile on a face…The weather was not the best, it was raining almost every 10 minutes but we wanted to go up up up up…Except the many cows we saw, there were also huge grasslands. I guess I am not the only one who compares the shade of green anywhere I go, but this green was just (OH MY) sooo pretty green! Does that sound weird? Anyway, we walked for an hour or so and admired the surrounding.Another traditional wooden cottage.Due to the windy and rainy weather, we couldn´t get to the peak of the mountain but we did lovely 15km which was accurate for a 1 day trip. Later, we had a lunch in one of the local restaurants, visited the tourist centre/ souvenir shop and went back home in the afternoon. I honestly loved all about this place, so calm, peaceful and pretty… I cannot wait to go hiking this weekend as well. There is so much to see here…
I hope you have a chance to visit Switzerland one day because it really is a magical place… Two months here and I am in love… I say it often right? Well, that is a destiny of a travel addict, I guess😃.
Take care, enjoy your life and until next time
