Missing the Swiss


we went from Basel to Bradenton.
though i love being home, here are some things i've been missing from life in Switzerland.
cheese plates, fresh hydrangeas and lavender, from our backyard, and nights on our little make shift patio.
bike rides to merian park
those gorgeous swiss summertime sunflowers
The front doors in Basel
sneaking in a view of the elephants through a hole almost every day
spray roses grown right outside our apartment
Vespas galore
shutters
daily trips to the fresh markets

Mostly we miss the friends we made and all of those late night dinners together.

  19. yay elephants! the zoo in basel was one of the coolest I had been too and it was insane how it is placed smack dab in the middle of the city. I'd love to see (but not smell) elephants from my balcony ;)

  25. It looks stunning and I am such a sucker for shutters and individual front doors.

    But now you have littlest Tucker which you could never had had in Switzerland and I'm sure her cuddles make up for everything.

  26. well then you should probably come visit me when i'm in spain so you don't miss europe too much :)

  27. Switzerland to date is my favorite place on EARTH. I just got back from Greece too, but nothing beats the beauty in Switzerland. We were in Bern, Zurich, Geneva, Thun, Luzerne, and Grinderwald.
    I just found your blog and am in love!

  29. Just wanted to leave a note and say how much i love reading your blog (i chanced upon it a few months ago). Love hearing about your adventures-probably because we share the same first name and i am always dreaming about moving to europe, especially switzerland since i studied abroad there for a short time. your life truly sounds like a fairy tale! :)
