Happy Monday and probably happy National day?!
1st of August is the national day in Switzerland what again means Helvetia celebrates its 725 birthday today. Therefore happy birthday my little Switzerland! I am proud to have my roots here in the middle of Europe (patriotic little girl!), surrounded by all the beauty of nature. I learned to appreciate the endless grass fields and mystical forests, the snowy mountains and crystal clear lakes. Yes, I am glad and lucky to be born here in the high prosperity located in the heart of Europe. We have a big and political and religious freedom that Switzerland serves to all its habitants (and will hopefully in the future). Whenever I wish to escape to somewhere else in the world (once thinking about a house right by the sea, once dreaming about the big city life) each time I am away, I am happy to return back home after certain time. Nothing brings me more happiness than the quiet forests surrounded by mountains and the company of my close friends and family.
Usually we celebrate this special day in the mountains at home but this time we took the extended weekend as a chance to explore the mountains close-by (more on Instagram). Are you back at work or taking a day off?
