Winter in Switzerland is snowy meadows, forests,
Switzerland in winter is frost in your hair.
It's learning to snowshoe,
and falling down sometimes.
It's unbelievably blue skies,
sledding on wooden sleds you can't steer,
wearing hand knit hats,
and walking somewhere which feels like the middle of the wilderness,
even though it is just steps away from a restaurant.
Switzerland winter is snow-covered chalets,
throwing snowballs at your big brother,
throwing snow boulders at your little brother,
having a frosty drink from a fountain,
and understanding why The Matterhorn is so special to the Swiss.
Winter in Switzerland is beautiful, and I love it.
