Umm.. Grumpygrapefruit..

Maybe you might want to lose the cow on the left of your picture. It might just be me, but I swear it looks like it's missed a few meals, or there is some kind of alien inside of it....
more likely just one of my neighbours. Oh no, that would be with goats.

That's what I can see. All 180 Glorious Degrees of it. And I wouldn't swap for anything
Here's our view from our balcony and when I saw it I jokingly told my hubby we'll stay here forever

Re: Room with a View - Swiss Reality

Nothing dramatic like the Alps here - just our 'cottage style' garden, surrounded by huge ancient trees, fields, a few horses and cows and our little medieval Church, with the Jura as backdrop- very peaceful.

Re: Room with a View - Swiss Reality

My Room view was my butts naked neighbours. Was quite entertaining when not simply disturbing or just plain wrong!

I don't have a picture, I would never dare...
