You can see all of Switzerland from one place - in miniature! situated just outskirts of Lugano, this is like an open-air museum with winding pathways and more than 120 models of famous landmakrs of Switzerland. from castles, cathedrals and other notable swiss buildings.
There are lots to see, lots of activities for the kids, a cafe to rest your legs, and facilities are good, and clean. beautiful painted buildings, trains and all other swiss transportation will leave you amazed. the landscape is trully something.
Tiny model trains, hellicopters, busses and cars with all its buzzing sounds makes this place a little bit more real for the kids!
Aidan's turn on the train around the village grounds!
We had a fantastic time here, (although i was rather grumpy at first for being hungry). but it turned out to be fun! kan Aidan?
After almost 3 hours later at the swiss miniature, we then pushed off to Munich on the most beautiful strech of road i've ever been on. and this was the view..
As i was snapping away, admiring the view from the car, little did we know that we're going to travel up the mountains, and the road will lead us right to the top. we got closer and closer to the hills and honestly, i didnt know where to turn! i was practically stunned, and at last, i just gave up on taking photos, and decided to just take them all in, and embrace the moment. i strongly recommend you to take that that stretch of road, if you're travelling by car. (remember i mentioned in my mother's day post about that feeling i have when i see my mum with my son, just like i'm on top of those snow-capped swiss mountains? well.. this is what i'm talking about!)
It was simply breathtakingly gorgeous, the view was just simply spactacular. out of this world! these pictures dont do justice at all but this is my best fair of sharing my experience with you guys! My family and i toured parts of Switzerland in the 80s, but that was in winter. i was way too cold (and young) to witness such beauty. second time was last summer last year, but we only visited Zurich. but this time, it was spring. and to have the sun shining, the blue skies, the green grass and snow on the mountains... you cant help it but to feel very, very small and humbled.
Having passed through probably close to a hundred of tunnels, i am totally in love with this country. i certainly dont mind going again. somehow i cant help it but to think - what have i done do deserve all this. trully am thankful to be witnessing all God's beauty. in those period of hardship, you often hear people say, there's a light at the end of the tunnel. but in Switzerland's case, not only there's a light at the end of the tunnel, but you will come out of the dark to a spactacular view where the grass is always greener on the other side! (how's that for combining the two together?! haha). surely applies in my case!
Have a fantastic weekend everybody! enjoy it!
