We had a long day today. Driving to a destination we haven’t been yet. A little getaway for a long weekend kind of thing.What a great trip it was so far.
And this is a big shout out to my family! My mother-in-law for being the beautiful person she is (Oh yes! She is amazing and I love her to bits!), my husband for driving all the way (and because I love him) and my kids for traveling so well and having so much fun, although we’ve spent almost 10 hours driving (and because I never ever want to miss them in my life).
Well, we made it. A great road trip, some stops in between, a nice dinner and 1 1/2 bottles of wine between my MIL and me later and I am finally here typing this.
I am tired but there is something I want to mention: This country takes my breath away! It amazes me! I don’t know if you can relate to this, but the fact that you can drive for hours without seeing a house is just mind bugling for me. Depending on where you come from you might not understand. But growing up in Switzerland this is a big deal!
See, as beautiful as Switzerland is (as clean and green and just awesome…), it is overpopulated. There are too many people! I mean, you try hard to get to a five hour drive and not cross a border somewhere in Switzerland. But there is no way you can drive for more than say 30min without seeing a house… (And if you manage, you are probably in a tunnel…)
So driving here is different to me. I find it almost magical. Time sort of stops, or slows down… And it already starts half an hour outside a major city! And there is nothing but nature… And we only drove from one State’s capital to another on a major highway! I can’t imagine what else is out there! And I mean far out there. Outback out there!
But I guess this will be an other road trip in our future. I am sure looking forward to it 🙂
