The highways were busier than normal this past weekend, as everyone is headed up to the mountains for the week long school holiday. Are you one of them? We are staying put because 1) we aren’t organized enough to plan ahead and 2) we’re tired and everyone knows that the word “holiday” with kids is a misnomer 😉 If you’re like us and staying local this week, don’t fret–Lausanne has some pretty cool events to make everyone else have FOMO…kind of.
Ok fine, skiing would be pretty amazing this week too. Have a great week, wherever you are!
