Only in Switzerland...

I thought about blogging about the royal wedding today but decided it would result in a too-emotionally charged post.

Not that I would look twice at the soon-to-be-bald prince nowadays (or at Leonardo DiCaprio or any other boys I had a crush on 15 years ago for that matter), but still...

Anyhow, I will be blogging instead about a "sport" I hope will soon be recognised as an Olympic discipline, giving the Swiss a chance to win a gold medal during the 2016 Summer Olympics. Yes, ladies, I am talking about cow jumping, a discipline that should be for the masses what horse jumping is for the elite. Only in Switzerland will you find a cow riding school!

Just like this 16-years old girl who dreamt of having a horse but had to make do with a cow...

 

Thank you to Newly Swissed for bringing this udderly (is it appropriate to laugh at your own joke?) amazing video to my attention. I shall spend the rest of the day tuned in to watch the wedding online surrounded by a box of tissues, some cake and a fizzy drink ;-)
