From Vals to Patnaulpass

Our first two days hiking in Vals were amazing (you can see the photos here and here). Beautiful views, lakes, farms, marmots… It was a very nice return to the mountains after the long rainy spring. As the previous days left us with a very good feeling, we decided to […]

Lapland IV. The Land of the Sami

Our first days in Lapland were a great adventure. Driving close to the Arctic circle on frozen roads, hiking and snowshoeing in forests out of a winter fairy tale… (you can see photos from these previous days here, here and here) But as the end of the trip was coming […]

Paris, the City of Light

I missed last week’s post, I know. But there’s a good reason for that. March has been a busy month with a few trips within Switzerland and to other locations… I haven’t published anything but I’ve been very busy exploring new places and taking a lot of photos! It’s been […]

Looking for the glacier

The last weekend of February a Siberian storm called Emma, a.k.a. “the Beast from the East”, visited Europe and, of course, Switzerland. While the storm brought very low temperatures and beautiful and rare snowy postcards to some European capitals like Dublin or Rome, here in Switzerland it brought freezing temperatures […]

Flying over the Alps

When I was offered the opportunity I couldn’t say no. How could I resist to fly over the Alps? Sure, I don’t like airplanes so much, despite having to endure several flights every year… And yes, this time it was a very small airplane… But then again, who could say […]
