we took the train to château-d'oex for the balloon festival. when checking the weather we neglected to take into account that we would be much higher in the mountains and therefore surrounded by snow. i brilliantly wore moccasins because they're so snow appropriate and within a few feet they were already soaked through to my socks. a sky full of hot air balloons in the mountains of switzerland was reason enough to press on and endure. unfortunately there was too much wind for the balloons to go up so after some oysters and champagne in the sun we went into the village and went bowling. i am a terrible bowler yet it remains one of my favorite things to do with a group of people. between the terribly attractive shoes and the endless opportunities to laugh at myself it's always a great time.
