If this is any indication for 2016…

To get to Grotto Monte Creda...
Via Monte Creda in Villa Luganese, Switzerland

…then we all better buckle up. Tight. Driving on this narrow road on a foggy afternoon, who knows what’s waiting around the corner?

I woke up this fine Wednesday morning with a feeling of relief that finally, gone is the stupor from holiday overload and gone is the xmas express train of last month. The decorations and lights are back in storage, getting back into shape is well under way, and the best part (for me anyway), is anticipating spring and a new season of gardening. So far we’ve had more cloudy days than sunny ones which only served as a catalyst for going where (we thought) the sun might be. Okay, so it wasn’t blue sky in Switzerland earlier this month, but sit next to a warm cozy fire, cin-cin to the first restaurant meal of the year in another country, and all is forgotten after the wine does its thing.

    That is so cool that you went to Switzerland! I too need to get my tush in gear and start getting into shape again. I want to lose about 50 pounds! Can’t wait for spring and summer too! Hugz my friend, Lisa and Bear

      It was a spur-of-the-moment thing, as we wanted to be able to take advantage of the swiss roadway pass that is valid up until the last day of January. Maybe we’ll head there again before the end of the month!
