Happy Swiss National Day

30 Jul


1st of August is the Swiss National Day. The whole country celebrates with big fireworks display, a lot of food and wine!

In Sierre they have the traditional Feu au Lac party on the 31st of July, a day before the big day. The party happens around Lake Geronde.The doors open at 11am and closes at 2am. During the day they have several activities for kids, food and drinks, around 19:00  they have live music and at 22:15 the firework celebration starts.To enter you have to pay CHF20 at the door. I always go to the Feu au Lac and I love it!

On the 1st, the celebration is closer to home. Crans Montana transforms itself in a open market. They have tends all over selling from hand made objects to food. During the day they have parades and traditional music playing live and at 22:00 is the firework display! This year theme is Western, that should be interesting! 

I love Swiss national day! Good excuse to drink wine, eat raclette and listening to live music!

01 de agosto é o Dia Nacional da Suíça. O país inteiro comemora com uma grande queima de fogos, muita comida e vinho!

Em Sierre eles têm o tradicional Feu au Lac festa no dia 31 de julho, um dia antes do grande dia. A festa acontece em torno do lago Geronde.As porta se abrem às 11h e fecha às 02:00. Durante o dia eles têm várias atividades para crianças, comida e bebidas, por volta de 19:00 eles têm música ao vivo e às 22:15 a queima de fogos começa.Para entrar você tem que pagar CHF20 na porta. Eu sempre vou para o au Feu Lac e amooo!

No dia primeiro, a celebração é mais perto de casa. Crans Montana transforma-se num mercado aberto. Tem tendas por toda a cidade vendendo desde objetos feitos à mão à comida. Durante o dia eles têm desfiles e música tradicional tocando ao vivo e às 22:00 é a queima de fogos! O tema desse ano é Western, o que deve ser interessante!

Eu amo dia nacional suíço! Boa desculpa para beber vinho, comer raclette e ouvir música ao vivo!

Playing golf!

9 Jul

Yesterday Alex came back from work and we had a wonderful Cheese Fondue, which was good since the weather wasn’t too warm! After feasting in a vast quantity of melted cheese and bread, he decided to go for a walk around the golf course and take the opportunity to hit some balls. Alex parents live literally in front of the golf course and from the 3rd hole you can see their house!

Crans- Montana

3 Jul

Alex and I moved to Switzerland June this year. Alex grew up in Switzerland, in fact the picture above was taken by me from his parents’ old house in a tiny village in the Swiss Alps. We now live just above this village, in a ski resort called Crans-Montana. I love it here! The weather is great during the summer and everything looks prettier during the winter!

Crans- Montana is fairly small, it is located in the french part of Switzerland in the canton of Valais. This beautiful ski resort lays on top of Sierre at an elevation of about 1500 m(4921 ft) and its year around population is 6.500 but during high season it can get to 50.000 people! Continue reading
