When I come up for air from the bottom of all the Ikea boxes invading our home, I'll manage to post some more of the gorgeous sites we've explored around the surrounding towns. For now I hope these hold you over.
So far, Loki and Juno have only explored Switzerland on foot in a 1-hour radius around the house (a 2-hour round trip walk). But the beauty of our location is that any walk can take us anywhere from a farm busy with livestock to a wide open pastures of agriculture, a deserted country road to a forest hiking trail, a Swiss home suburb to a single chateau and from a quiet village to a bustling town.
Below we stumbled upon this vinyard behind our home.
"Princess, Mom said something about this being a perfect fruit."
"Fruit, schm-uit. I've got bigger plans."
I wonder if a bottle of pinot counts as a daily serving of fruit?
"Such as a daily serving of some of that cheval over there, baby."
Loki's doing much better these days and is settling into a routine. He's even much calmer around farm animals, cows, horses and pigs. We have some great photos of that to show you in the coming weeks of how he and Juno have progressed in becoming accustomed to livestock.
As I type this, the fence guys are here and installing the fence. They drove a tractor with a huge drill on it to our backyard. Now we understand why the fence is tres chere here! We fenced a four times larger area for half the cost and no big machine equipment at our home in the States. Switzerland just doesn't have the advantage of "cash-only" laborers.
