It is the 60th birthday of a Swiss native and this is where she wants to go. A place where water can be drunk straight from the stream. A place where her family came every summer, to a small cottage across the double arched bridge, to live the definition of a simple life. The Verzasca River is in the top five most beautiful places I have ever laid my eyes on. While there, I had a soothing calm come over me and once leaving I got a burst of energy that refreshed my soul. The 60th birthday celebration ended with an early dinner of wild mountain goat at a family owned restaurant down the road. It was her perfect day and a day we would all never forget spent in a true oasis.
