During my last few days in Switzerland, snow started to fall closer to Zurich and my sister and I took a drive into the hills in search of photo opportunities. Living in South Africa, we are not exposed to a whole lot of snow and I have never walked in, touched or played in proper snow. I was in such awe! It was the highlight of my trip and a supreme delight to experience real snow for the first time in my life. The stunning beauty and silence of it on the one hand and the uncomplicated fun on the other hand - nature truly is wonderful. Now for the first time do I understand the obsession people have with skiing and snowboarding - it must be absolutely awesome!
