Blue skies and green meadows – Switzerland at it’s best.
Thought for the day….” When you fish for love, bait with your heart”. ” You cannot cross the sea by merely standing and gazing at the water”.
A classic photo from Switzerland for the photo today. The photo was taken in the village of Kandersteg, near the centre of Switzerland. Located at about 1200m altitude, it is surrounded by the Bernese Alps which rise to over 3600m. Tourism is highly important here, and it is both a winter (skiing) and summer (hiking & climbing) destination. It is also the home of the international Scout centre, with over 11 000 Scouts visiting each year. Despite having 4 official languages, Swiss-German is the most prevalent, with around 65% of the 7.3 million residents speaking it. One piece of trivia….there are now more Starbucks coffee houses in Switzerland than banks. And Switzzerland has the highest consumption of chocolate per capita in the world…..11.6 kg/capita a year. As the saying goes…9 out of 10 people like chocolate, the 10th person was lying.
And a photo out of the archives….soldiers on parade in Copenhagen, Denmark.
