Saturday; the eve of the big ‘do.’

Slightly cool, rather cloudy but we were in fine spirits as we headed off to Romont to pick up the giggling duo; fully recovered from the terror of drinking, two nights before, in the Giger bar, which is opposite the Giger museum dedicated to the chap who designed the Alien, in the Alien films.

It’s actually a bit like drinking inside the Alien itself, well I imagine that’s what it would be like! We arrived to find Zach and Safi playing in the garden with Jean-Denis and Liliane. Off to the co-op for a quick shop, not having to park underground as we did  yesterday to avoid the rain. Back to the farm to unload and then off to one of Malcolm’s favourite restaurants, where they do a mean chicken in the basket.

Safi laughed at videos various on Mary’s phone while we waited for our order to be taken (a joint cloak of invisibility was obviously dropped over us) and Zach ordered salad when the waitress finally arrived. How grown up is this seven year old?

The hotel view had changed a bit this morning but the snow was still up there and the one thing that always startles us (there is a small airfield nearby) is when the small planes fly past our balcony like some clip from an Indiana Jones film!

Because it’s Saturday and I guess because the Zmoos men were not working today, the deer that normally inhabit the field below the hotel but hadn’t this week; were back and happily in situ.

There was one dreadful moment where we contemplated that they had all gone off to be made into venison sausages but happily not the case.

Laura and Hannah have both arrived safely and Laura has taken the cake, which was cut in half and filled in a very delicate and tense procedure this afternoon, back to her flat to be decorated! We arrived back at the hotel to the sound of an alpine horn echoing across the valley. A marriage in the church with a horn accompaning the happy couple; don’t think it was Pippa!


Thanks for reading. Fingers crossed for the weather tomorrow.

Malcolm and Mary

Malcolm worked for LWT. Mary worked for TRL. They live near Camberley in Surrey and did achieve their life long ambition to visit New Zealand. They have two daughters Laura and Hannah and two grandchildren Zach & Safi. Having done the big trip they then went to Canada, which was amazing. Scroll down it’s all here. They have visited Venice that they both so fell in love with in 2009 again. And recently returned to Lefkada for one week in glorious sunshine. Where next? Well, Canada is calling again in 2019; this time including Alaska. So stay tuned if you enjoy the ups and downs of travelling.
