Trip to Tessin with Grandma

Hey, my loves!<3 I made a one day trip with my grandma – or as I call her Grosi, which is the typically swiss word for grandma – to Tessin and even Italy by train.

Tessin is a canton of Switzerland which is in the south and borders on Italy. It’s so beautiful there and it actually looks like you are somewhere in Italy or Spain. The architecture is very Mediterranean and you see palm trees everywhere.

I haven’t been there for a while actually. We always drive through the Tessin when we go to Italy tho. When I was younger I used to live there on the weekends. Because my dad had to work there so my mom and I would visit him on the weekends.

We drove from Zurich to Chiasso, from Chiasso to Lugano, from Lugano to Bellinzona, from Bellinzona to Locarno, from Locarno to Dal Domodossola in Italy with the panorama train, from there to Brig then to Bern and back to Zurich.

In Lugano, we had a little stay, walked along the lake and ate lunch.<3

It was such a great time we had. It was just me and my grandma. We just felt like doing something together since my Mom and my youngest brother left to Malaga in Spain and my other brother and Dad flew to Mykonos.

Also, it was super beautiful to just watch out of the train window all day long, looking at the wonderful nature and especially lakes and mountains of Switzerland.<3 And as always my grandma and I had great talks together!<3
