Dearest friends that i am sitting on the hill at my farm table with the sun shining through the windows is mind boggling hence i have not been at this position for almost a full month. I have been away for so long but as i have said such a large piece of my heart and mind has been here on the hill the whole time.
I have just spent one the most rewarding weeks in a long time with my dear friend kimberly and although what i want to do more than anything is tell you about it, i think it would be best to start of with other incredible moments from my work and holiday trip to europe. after looking through only half of photographs i have taken in the last month, it has become clear i must just jump right into. i do apologize for i might end up mixing a few images from on day to the next but i will keep them from the same country at least:)
the photographs above are from my time in switzerland with my friend Juliana. I have to say that i was so drawn to the rural part of switzerland. we walked along a path around a lake and on farm land. it rained, mist and fog made me feel at home oh and the cows ( more one them soon). Juliana was so welcoming, i was spoiled by home cooked meals and when you are on your own like i am and are the only cook in the family it is very rare to sit down at a table and eat something that was made by others. Juliana is a wonderful cook, while she cooked i highjacked her dinning table and opened so many of her cook books from her incredible collection and with pen and paper found myself writing recipes i wanted to try on the hill. Andi her husband would harvest a lettuce from their beautiful garden and prepare the most simple of salads dressed with a delicate and beautiful dressing. All of the things i ate, like the incredible lentil soup, walnut cake and tagine will be repeated here in my own kitchen and i am sure it will bring back such nice memories of my time with the lovely juliana & andy in their home.
More from switzerland soon, it is good to be back and be able to share with you moments from my travel.
