So, as promised on Instagram earlier, I went out for dinner last night with my father and sister. We went to a swiss restaurant nearby, which I really wanted to go to. It makes awesome Fondues!

So we come to my mother:
She is french, which I love, and her entire family is, too. Okay, fine, her younger sister moved to switzerland some day and still lives there, but she is still french at heart. ;)
They were a typical family of 5 children, lived in/near the alps; a working father, housemother, obedient children; a lot of mountains, a lot of hiking and skiing, a lot of baguette and cheese! Throughout the years they moved from their hometown to another one, called "Annecy", built a house there (they built it themselves!) and my grandmother still lives there. - That is where I have always gone to on holiday.
