In case you haven’t guessed yet, I spent last weekend in Switzerland, more specifically in a town called Vevey. The weather was glorious. Each night, I sat on the balcony of our friend’s gorgeous lakeside apartment. Let me set the scene: white swans gliding over the black waters of Lake Geneva (in French, Lac Léman), me sipping a chilled local wine and tick-tacking away on my computer as sheet lightning illuminates the snow capped mountains. Bliss, I tell you, pure and simple.

I visited this town last year, known as a pearl of the Swiss Riveria, and ever since I’ve been captivated by its beauty and vibe. So much so that I am actually considering moving there. More on that line of thinking later, but for now let me show you a brief glimpse of one of my favourite places I’ve ever been.

Now I ask you, wouldn’t you want to walk here …

on your way to this …

where you can load up your basket here …

and here …

Then, after the market you can meander back through streets that look like this …

and this …

And then walk off into the sunset with your favourite person in the world …

Looks pretty good doesn’t it? To me it’s paradise and I’m fixin’ to see if I’ll be finding me in Vevey soon. Much thinking and drinking must be undertaken to deal with this dilemma. Next time I’ll think out loud and you can all try and talk me out of this madness. But first, tell me, if you had the chance to live here, would you take it?
