About us

Welcome to Switzerland Travel Family! (EN)

We are a multicultural family living in Lucerne, Switzerland. I’m Aline, Brazilian born, lived in Vancouver and London before I came to Switzerland in 2008. My dream is taking my family for an adventure in the Amazon and do volunteer work, what is being possibly thought our Blog! My husband Andreas is swiss, loves Scuba Diving and martial arts, and is a volunteer at the Fire Department in Lucerne. Our son Matteo, born in Lucerne in 2016, is trilingual (GE, SP, PT) and visit so far six countries. Martin and Alex are my stepchildren (-Andreas kids), and on weekends are taking part as well of our adventures.

Switzerland Travel Family was born to register our travels and places that we explore around Switzerland, and share how amazing this country is! To inspire Family travelers like us and give some useful tips about our experience.

An essential part of our mission and our family philosophy are social projects. We are interested in discovering education, social, and volunteer projects in Switzerland and abroad. We thing that donating our time and spreading attention to who’s need is the best way to give a better world to our kids. Some of the projects that we took part as a volunteer are:

-Project 2x Weinachten (Swiss Post, Coop, and Rotes Kreuz) spend food and hygiene items for unprivileged people in Switzerland.
-Dance afternoon at Nursery Home “Urtenen Schönbühl” In Bern, bringing joy, dancing, spending time with seniors.
-Theater Gala Charity Night (Caritas Luzern, CSS Insurance) Total donations destinated to families with lower incomes in Switzerland. (2015/2016/2019)
-Donation of Pampers and baby items of clothing to families in Havana, Cuba.
-We are supporting the Swiss Children Cancer Association (Kinder-Krebs Liga) in Switzerland.
-Support the Association Stiftung Familie Luzern, disclosing and taking part in the Project «Familien Kochen», Family cooking lessons for single-parent families.

Our Blog is a proud member of the “Schweizer Familienblogs” or Swiss family blogs 🙂
