One of the most famous book-spots in Switzerland

Last weekend my family and I went for a long dog walk starting in Bad Ragaz and ending up in the fields of Maienfeld. These names won’t mean much to most people.

But what if I told you that this is the spot where one of the best-ever selling books was written (no, not mine ;-)) and all the events in the book happened exactly here?

Any ideas?

Take a walk with me :)

I know many of you can’t leave your homes. In Switzerland, we still can (provided we keep distance). So I hope that by taking this virtual walk with me today, you get to enjoy the nature at least a little bit 🙂

Take a good care of yourselves, stay healthy and be optimistic!

We will get through this!

What’s a good book?

A good book is when I can’t wait for my next available free time to sit and read the next few pages. When I read the page on the left and my eyes keep jumping to the page on the right, desperate to find out what will happen. A book that I often rewind: I go back to read a paragraph again and again, because I really liked it. A story where I identify with a character: someone who is good, brave, but still has some minor faults I can relate to.

Cat with a big heart

I bring muddy pawprints on dark wooden floor,

Get two yummy bellyfulls but I meow for one more.

I jump up high, pressing fly under my right paw,

Snatch it, crunch it in two bites, delicious though it‘s raw.

 

I wake up from my midday sleep, I strech, yawn, then sit,

I look around for cuddly place. See Mom. Mmm. Good fit.

Then I snuggle on her laptop, pressing shift, delete, ignore,

She smiles, gives me best of cuddles while I purr and snore.

 

Evening is all quiet, boys asleep in bed,

I jump onto the sofa next to Mommy‘s head,

We touch foreheads, once or twice, my favorite part of day,

I lie for hours on her lap, existance in best way.

 

Rainy morning, something‘s wrong, my heart is very sore,

Next moment all is gone – and I am no more
