Ex-pat Years in Switzerland

Luck. Fortune. Fate. Call it what you want, but when the opportunity to spend a few years in Switzerland landed in our laps, we didn't say "no." I mean, we may be crazy here at Wild Dingo, but we're not exactly, crazy. It was everything you'd imagine and more. From transatlantically transporting two high-drive dogs to our foreign grocery store adventures, there wasn't a single moment of regret.

High Rollers

"Princess, gambling is a sure way of getting nothing for something."   "Big Boy, it's not gambling when you never lose!" We've had a strange week and lady luck has not been on our side.  The criminal tried to have herself a solo adventure (thankfully the cracker stuck to her like glue) and the cracker […]

The car dealer was open late on Saturday night […]

Not to mention food labels in English and not having to […]

Traitors!

Sometimes, we'll be hiking along, minding our own darn business when we spot two interlopers hanging out on our path. We do our best to be polite and ignore them, but they hiss and say nasty things to us.

I See London, I see France...

"Well, you're half right Big Boy. That would be France behind us. But if the next words out of your mouth are about my jodhpurs, you'll be seeing the moon---up close."
