Today the weather has been lovely. So we took a drive Neuchatel, a beautiful chocolate box town that resides by Switzerland’s third largest lake. We were equipped in walking clothes and meant business…
The language here is predominantly French so it is hard to remember that we are not in France. Especially when surrounded by boulangeries, patisseries and so on.
The day started with tea and a croissant and we headed up to the local church. Everywhere here is hilly and by the time we ‘climbed’ to the church which has a beautiful view of Neuchatel both of our lungs and hearts were bursting out of our chests. We had to laugh when an old Swiss lady met us near to the top of the steps and said in French, ‘Don’t worry you will get to the top soon!’ Ha ha! We must’ve looked awful.
All I think is its fresh air, great exercise and I get to see the world and spend it with the man of my dreams.
After 2 hours walking by the lake we drove to Morat, an equally divine town bathed in history. Here they had a town oompah band really going for it! I had a little wiggle to it before we left to go ‘home’.
This evening we decided to eat in Lausanne again- boy walking to the Cathedral was such a challenge- my little legs.
Everything is expensive here. Time for bed…
