“One doesn’t have to travel far to make new discoveries, see the world anew and feel alive.” – M. Schoutens

One and a half hours away from Basel, in the French speaking part of Switzerland lies the crystal clear waters of lake Neuchatel and its’ quaint city.  Though the day was a bit overcast and cool, we spent time lazily picnicking by the lake, while our son enjoyed throwing stones and conversing with passerby swans.  The Alps were visible from the shores; kites flew high as the day marched on in a slow, meandering fashion.  Sometimes, one doesn’t have to go far in order to feel away from it all.
