Did you know that we live in one of the top ten happiest countries in the world?

Yes! This is Switzerland! Our current homeland…

For whatever reasons we have picked up to be here, we can definitely enjoy hiking or skiing in the beautiful mountains, swimming in the refreshing lakes, relax with the idyllic Alpine landscapes and of course eating delicious cheese and chocolate!

Regardless whether you are here longer or moved in just recently, I’m sure you have a lot to say about this amazing country.

So take your camera and show us your Switzerland! Switzerland through your viewfinder…
