This video embodies what I love about the Swiss

Despite everyone joking about their OTT organisation etc, I love the way the Swiss just get on with things and yes, have a great time in the process.


In my view, this particular event in September is a reflection of the organisation, solidarity and sense of community my family and I have been able to enjoy in our part of Switzerland for the last 5 years, and yes, a reason why we decided to stay.

Obviously, even the Swiss can make fun about it themselves! And use it to their advantage for tourism!

Some years back we went to a similar event, "La Balade Gourmande" around mont Vully in Fribourg. Was a great day out and I think I got quite drunk.
