My equally ex-pat German friend, equally married to an equally tall Swiss man, lives in the picturesque region of Morat... and it was time for a drive south to compare notes. :)



Charm is an understatement on the Swiss plateau.



Where tractors just mosey along...



And fields of colza spread out like a patchwork quilt.



Tiny winding streets...




Out here under a bigger sky than ours up in the Jura mountains, sunsets par excellence.



And ... well ... yes ... I was going 80 km an hour when I took this picture. (Don't tell hubby).

It looks like a pretty and very quite region

Si j'ai bien compris, tu deviens réellement un danger publique quand tu roule. J'espère que tu n'as pas la voiture pleine d'enfants lors de tes exercices :(
Je devine : tu n'avais pas envie de t'arrêter une 100ème fois, alors tu photographie en conduisant. C'est ça ?
Mais finalement, si tu sortais de route ce ne serait pas grave, tout est tellement plat dans le Seeland.
Ton amie de Germany va bien?
Bisous

I'm glad you have an ex-pat soul sister to share 'notes' with. :) And what a gorgeous drive (except for the snapping photos while behind the wheel thing!)
