The beautiful lakes of Flims

One of the things that I love about Switzerland is its weather. It may sound like a weird thing to say for a Spaniard. But it is true. I love that Switzerland has four very distinct seasons, that it is cold in winter and hot in summer, and the seasons […]

Sometimes plans don’t go the way you imagine. This isn’t necessarily bad… You plan to go somewhere just to make a photo and, eventually, you end up doing something entirely different from what you had in mind. This happened to me a few days ago. Like last year, we went […]

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 […]

White Sunday

A few weeks ago I went to the mountains with some friends. We chose Mt. Rigi, which is very close to Zurich and has a lot of winter hiking trails well maintained during all seasons (I have already shown you photos from Rigi here). When I was planning this trip, […]
