going merry - dreamship

To the mountains

Tomorrow morning (at 6.50 AM, blah!) I'm off to Switzerland for a few days. Nothing like I usually do, but it's better than not going there at all. Me and my brother are going first, to spend a couple of days in our little home village (which has a big international conference center in it, which explains the Swiss mom + Swedish dad thing we've got going), before mom flies down from Sweden to join us for my grandfather's 90th birthday. My uncle and cousins are coming too, but it'll still be a tiny, informal gathering.

I'm really looking forward to all of it - my grandad's an awesome old guy, really spry for his age, and I only see my two cousins about once every two years, so that'll be good. And just being in Caux... I've missed it so much this summer. The mountains, the lake, the people - everything. It's a special place, and even if it's just for a few days, at least I'll have seen them again before I leave to go further away from them than ever before.

I'll be back in Sweden late Sunday evening, and I'll probably have access to wireless internet almost around the clock while I'm there... and since I got a digicam for my birthday last week, I'm afraid there might be some picspam coming this way soon. ^_^ (I can't help it! It's just so much fun!)
