I was away for the most part of last week as I went by myself on a trip to visit friends and family in Switzerland. It had been almost 4 years since I saw some of my close friends... every year we say we will go and then life happens and we keep postponing the trip.
It is always bittersweet to visit places where you used to live. They mostly look the same, but they are not your city anymore (except for certain places... Barcelona will always feel like home). It is different with people. No matter how long we've been apart, catching up over a cup of tea is so easy and it feels like we never stopped seeing each other. I came back with a big chunk of cheese and of course, the obligatory bars of chocolate. The weather was truly glorious... it felt like summer all over again, except as a result I am now recovering from a cold (must have been the drastic change of temperatures, as the chilly weather starts to settle in The Netherlands).
I love how much Switzerland looks like a postcard, and cows are my friends. Walking alongside the large ruminants was such a fun thing to do.
