Summer in Alpstein

Against the prediction of the Böögg (this year the snowman’s head exploted after 17min and 44sec… not a very good forecast!), this summer is being hot in Switzerland.

Alpabfahrt, the Swiss end of Summer

If there is a Swiss tradition that I was looking forward to seeing that is the Alpabfarht. What is the Alpabfarht? The Alpabfarht (from German, means the drive from the mountain pastures) takes place when the farmers take their cows (or goats or sheep) back to their sheds after they […]

Meeting the Matterhorn

Last week it was our fifth wedding anniversary and we decided to make something truly special to celebrate it. We spent the weekend in one of the most beautiful areas of Switzerland: Zermatt, a little town in the valley of Matter, in Canton Valais, surrounded by some of the highest […]
