Vacation in Bern & Laax (Part Two)

CaumaseeThis week was packed with action. In 7 days, we managed to organise the birthday party of Manon and the birtday party of Tim & Isa, swim in the beautiful Caumasee, attend to the wedding of  Isa’s twin brother, meet the parents, meet our former neighbours, watch the Tour de France (on TV)…and go every second day to therapy. But the best about this week was that the whole wedding crowd came already 6 days ahead of the wedding and stayed together for the entire week. From that angle, it has clearly been the most enjoyable wedding I ever attended. I had time to chat with all of guests and catch-up on stories and family events.

A personal highlight was of course to risk my first swim 5 weeks after the knee operation. And I did that in the most beautiful setting. The Caumasee is a mix a Yellowstone Pond, filled with Caribbean water surrounded by the Swiss Alps.


Tim & Lea married on July 25th in an old alpine  church in Falera (above Laax). I am usually not a big fan of churches but the walk amidst the fields to this isolated church was all worth it (even with crutches). I even enjoyed the way the married couple organised in a rather unorthodox way the ceremony.

The last highlight was of course the birthday party of Manon. Isa organised it all: a “Kasperlitheater”, a treasure hunt ending by the lake with large birthday cakes for kids and adults. It was a beautiful day and on that very day, I wished we could just stay in Laax for the rest of our lives. Manon's Birthday in LaaxUnfortunately, we had to pack the following day. A last swim in the lake of Laax and before jumping into the car. 700km and 9hours later we arrive in Vienna.
