Day 22 to 28 we spent at my parents’ place. My niece came with us and we spent the next 6 nights sharing my childhood bedroom.
We went for a hike with my parents. The beauty of the mountains is absolutely breathtaking. It seriously almost hurts that’s how beautiful it is. There were so many cows and I can still hear the so familiar sound of the cow bells. The mountains are so inspirational to me and I wished that I had my paints with me. Black ink just didn’t do the beauty justice. I decided that day that I am going to create a series of paintings of mountains. I will make sure to post some of them once I start the series. Make sure to come back to check them out!
We went to Zurich to go to the art museum “Kunsthaus Zürich” for the day. We took an early train so that we would have all day in Zürich. It was another beautiful day. We went for a walk along the lake, strolled around the old part of the city and visited some churches before making it to the gallery. It’s such an amazing museum and it was nice to be there with my niece and to have the opportunity to explain art to her. We saw everything from Rembrandt to Monet to Picasso to Warhol to Paul Klee. I really enjoyed the visit.
On the way back we stopped in at an amazing book store. The store only carries books on art, architecture, design, fashion and photography. I could have stayed there for days.
My entire family took a drive over the Nufenenpass to the Italian speaking canton “Ticino”. The drive was amazing and the views just breathtaking. We went to a mountain crystal mine and got some beautiful mountain crystals.
A. spent the day with one of her girlfriend, so my parents, K. and I spent to morning at my dads shooting club. It was great to see K. shoot a handgun for the first time. He was a pretty good at it. It was nice to show him the club as I had spent so much of my childhood there. We used to have family gatherings here and I spent countless hours running around in the woods, looking for snakes and playing with my brother.
Day 26 and 27
We spent the last couple of days just enjoying spending time with my family. A. and I made a guitar out of clay for her dad. I forgot to take a picture of it, which is too bad because it turned out amazing. We even used small pieces of thin metal wire for the guitar strings.
My parents took the train to Zürich Airport with us. It was nice to spend a few more hours with them before leaving. It’s always so hard for me to good-bye to my family. I hope to see them again soon!
Ich hae ew alli ganz fescht gaeru!
