Swanning through Switzerland
We raced down to Switzerland after spending a few weeks with family in order to get there for Stacey’s birthday. We found a spot in a local park in the forest, with a restaurant that does cheese fondue. The whole reason why we came to Switzerland for Stacey’s birthday!
Sadly the weather wasn’t our friend for the actual day, lots of heavy rain, but we still made the most of the day. Popped into the local town Neuchâte, had a wonder round and did a bit of shopping just to keep us out of the torrential downpour! Then in the evening we popped to the restaurant on our doorstep and enjoyed a cheese fondue amongst locals while gazing over at the alps.
When in Switzerland it’s all about cheese and chocolate, and of course the scenery. So we therefore had to visit Gruyeres and buy some Gruyère cheese, and go for a lovely walk around the picturesque old town.

We chose to take the Sustenpass out of Switzerland heading towards Italy, and it was the perfect choice. We even spent the night along it, parked up basking in the stunning scenery.

So far Switzerland has been Staceys favourite country. Not only is it gorgeous and the chocolate and cheese divine, but we were also so impressed by it’s cleanliness and accommodating nature towards van lifers. We stayed at a couple of places where a fire pit was built and there were stacks of logs with an axe to borrow!
We only stayed a week in Switzerland, mainly because of cost, but I’m sure we shall return one day. And we made sure to pass a supermarket on the way out to buy a cheese fondue to make in Luna of course!
