... my mum worked for 6 months when she was a little older than me. We went back to their house for a beautiful cooked lunch followed by dessert of cherries and cream! Afterwards Dario and Claudia took us up to our family house in the mountains- the equivalent of a Bach in NZ 'Cansume'. It was just as I remembered it- so beautiful. We walked around for a while and the view is just incredible! Ilaria picked us up in the afternoon and we went ...

If I can't handle it here... what will I do in Switzerland? I was told there's an RV campground up ahead. I figure I could go up there and see what my options are. I go inside and ask if they have any indoor places I could sleep. They take me to the basement ...
