Outskirts of Zurich – Switzerland Holidays
Wednesday, 7th June, 2018
I thought I would read about it only in Enid Blyton books. But wanted to live it. The kids heard about it and were really excited. So “Stay in the Hay” it was! We made friends with Barny the farm hand, and the two sheep sucklings Luisa and Suzy. We felt like the Famous Five rolling in the meadows, swimming in the lake, riding little ponies and relaxing in the hammocks. Almost felt like a nice pirate adventure was just around the corner! Thank you Vibrant Holidays for giving back part of my childhood. Ginger ale and fresh strawberries, anyone?
