Travel, Weekends

Weekend Break

I waited for our eldest to get home from school and my man to tie up his work for the weekend. We packed, bundled the kids and dog in to the car and headed for the “Ticino” (the canton in the south of Switzerland). A Weekend glamping (glamour camping).Our bungalow was on a campsite with it’s own beach on the lake Maggiore. Perfekt.

Back at home now. The bags unpacked, the washing machine going and I’m enjoying creating this post with pictures to last me through the week. Well at least until Monday evening.
