The Swiss schools have two weeks ‘Sport Ferien’ in February where most kids seem to go skiing or do something sporty in the mountains with their families. Pretty cool huh?! Since we have done our skiing /snow / sporty thing in the mountains already, we had two weeks hanging close to home with no Spielgruppe or Muki Treff or much else on. It has been pretty fun but I am glad everything is back to ‘normal’ this week.
Here are a few photos of what the boys and I have been up to. Including a lot of train riding, sliding down slides, a trip to Zurich zoo, a trip to children’s playland called ‘Trampolino‘ (thanks for the tip, Cornelia!). You wouldn’t believe that there were probably a hundred or more kids there by the photos, it was CRAZY fun. We also made homemade pizza – Italian styles with the thin base and, man, it was the best pizza ever! At the zoo we saw a brand new baby hippo and a rhinosaur (Toby was sure it was a rhinosaur and not a rhinoceros!). Toby was really keen to meet a chameleon and we found one at the rainforest enclosure at the zoo. We didn’t manage a photo though, cos my camera fogged up in the damp air. The rainforest reminded me much of what the Neuseeland summer is like – sticky and humid! And with all the beautiful fern trees and palms – I felt right at home!
