As most of you probably know, I live in Switzerland. My boyfriend and I moved here in January and until now we’ve been living in a small temporary apartment. The search for a real permanent apartment hasn’t been easy, but after two months of literally daily searching (and visiting, and comparing, and applying, and competing, and being rejected) we finally managed to find a place. Today is our last day here in Lutry, and then we’re moving to our new apartment in Épalinges. And we’re so excited! Finally we’ll have more space again! No more working and eating at the same tiny table, no more sleeping on a bed in the living room, no more miniature kitchen with only two cooking plates, no more fridge that can barely hold a cup of yoghurt and a bottle of water,… Woohoo! Not only will our new apartment be bigger, but it’s also brand new. I already look forward to decorating the place and I can feel the design desire starting to itch!
But (of course there has to be a but to the story) we will definitely miss the beautiful location here in Lutry. We live at less than 300 metres from Lake Geneva here, and the French Alps are literally right in front of our nose. It’s just incredible. It’s like a little piece of heaven. Our little apartment here is small, but it is located in an amazing environment and we’ve really enjoyed living here. The place we’re moving to now sits on the mountain and is 800 metres higher than Lutry, and so the environment is a lot different. No more lake and no more beach, but forests and a lot more snow in winter instead. Different, but also really nice, especially for snow lovers and hikers like us. And if we hop in the car we’ll be at Lake Geneva in no time, so the water will never be far away.
Anyway, time to stop talking, to get back to packing, and to say goodbye. I am taking a little blog break during the move. I don’t know when I’ll be back exactly, and it all depends on how easily we get settled and how soon our internet will be up. But I hope to keep the break down to a week and to be back in the week of July 8. I will keep you updated. In the meantime, stay gorgeous, and enjoy a few pictures of beautiful Lutry with me!
