To dream & see the world : Switzerland

Tuesday, August 9, 2016



Life is full of (unpredictable) surprises when you least expect about things to happen. And as cliche as it may sound, when it happens to you, that phrase actually make a lot of sense. For those who have been following this blog, I started this virtual journal of mine with only two simple reasons: to share things that captured my eyes and hopefully inspire others with my stories.

And for that reason, I chose the title, "My Unpredictable" for this blog simply because I often feel that life's experiences and the opportunities that came along my way to be quite unpredictable. Every journey, people, story that I had encountered always greet me with different purposes which happened to be great most of the time.



This mid year, I've been given a wonderful opportunity to travel and see the other side of the world I've never dreamt of visiting with my big family. We went for a three weeks trip with 15 family members in total, being a globetrotter across Europe. I'm already back in Jakarta and have been dealing with my post-vacation-blues for almost two weeks already! I decided to make a series called "To dream & see the world" out of my long trip where I'll be highlighting some places that has won my heart.

Our first stop was Switzerland, where I had witnessed such a breathtaking view of Mt. Titlis and visiting a dreamy small city called Luzern. It was a bit chilly in the morning as we leave for Mt. Titlis and I still clearly remember the excitement during my early days of arriving in Switzerland and when I just simply being mesmerised by my window seat view. Every sight was totally new to me. I was loving every second of it and feeling grateful for what mother nature has to offer.



We took a cable car ride and continued our journey going to the top of Mt. Titlis. As soon as we arrived, it was cloudy so we can barely see anything. Although I was feeling a bit disappointed at first, despite the fog, me and my cousins spent an hour or so playing snowball fight together.


As the time goes by, the road get more slippery and when I realised that my oxford shoes get super wet, finally the sun's out! Just the right time before we leave, a beautiful array of sunlight came towards the mountain and we spend more time enjoying it. It was breathtaking and for a brief moment I couldn't really believe what I saw. There are so many things in life to be thankful for, and being able to witness such a heavenly view is on top of my list. I've always said this, but whenever I travel to new places, especially when mother nature is right in front of you, I feel more grounded.






Tune in next week to read more stories from my trip to Europe! 
If you're still reading this, thank you for dropping by and have a lovely week :D
