Postcard from Federerland.


I never get any mail except for bills these days. It makes me a little nostalgic, so when I travel, I like to send postcards and imagine how nice it’ll be when friends and family get them. Since I can’t send postcards to all of you, I thought I’d pop in here to see how y’all going in your post-Wimbledon/World Cup blues. Has Poojay flooded this place with Lleyton Porn yet?

Traveling is usually a great break from tennis, unless you’re travelling from Wimbledon to Federerland in some sort of failed pilgrimage. Luckily for me, I’ve met some amazing international civil servants in Geneva over the last week (where I’m studying law at the moment) and saw a bit more of Heidiland over the weekends. We climbed Mount Pilates. We hunted for Heidi. We drooled over the Swiss military uniforms, (and, yer know – what was in them, returning home for the weekend). We pretended to be investment bankers. We saw 50,000 franc watches and wondered how many livers we’d have to sell to own one. We ate cheese, chocolate and … ostrich meat (all the rage in Zurich). It’s been a blast so far.

Two weeks til it’s back to business as usual on Picket Fence, until then, enjoy your time with Poojay.

Hope you appreciate this photo, because I looked like a retard taking photos of a billboard at a train station.

THEY ACTUALLY EXIST.

Lucerne.

The freaktastically named town of “Rapperswil”. Near Zurich.

Until next time my lovelies!

    Thanks very much for this Doots and yes PJ has been keeping us happy.

    I have to now make a note that Switzerland is one of those countries I must see before I die. Absolutely lovely pictures.

  2. schnargle says :

    Switzerland looks gorgeous Doots, hope you’re having fun 🙂

    Can anyone translate the German text on the Roger/Rafa billboard?

  3. Ribbons says :

    Ostrich meat. Good heavens.

    Really enjoying your tweets – they feel like postcards too. As for non-Federer eye candy, I feel I can speak for LJology: Mousie’s gonna get badgered for Petzschey porn until it happens, oh very yes. =-)

    Yum Swiss chocolate! I’m glad you’re having a great time! And PJ has been awesome 😀

    I still wonder what became of Juliet! And I’d pay good money to have that billboard plastered onto my wall.

    Mucho enjoyed the photos. The food sounds marvey. Keep having fun, doots!

    I like the 1st picture! (No, you probably wouldn’t look like a retard taking a picture at the train station.. I saw many tourists do it all the time… I even took some photo at the subway when I went to Europe…) Poojay has been great.

    Hope you continue to have a great time in Federerland even though he seems to be somewhere quite far from you!!! 😉

    Thanks for the postcard, Doots, loved it.
    PJ has been really nice and she gave us FP twice this last week . Well, almost. I don’t remember you ever being so nice to us 😛 .
    Hope you have a great time in Federland. Too bad Federbond is out frolicking on some Mediterranean beach with his babes presumably on a secret mission (methinks ovary slaying :-D)
