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. There had already two heat waves, when temperatures have reached 36ºC in Zurich. That is hot, very hot… scorching! There’s been also […]

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 […]

The three lakes of Vals

We took it easy on our first day in Vals, exploring the surroundings of the beautiful Zervreilasee (Zervreila lake). After the long rainy and lazy spring, I didn’t want to exhaust myself on the first day of our trip. But the second day we decided to make a bigger effort […]

Vals, the hidden valley

A few days ago was our wedding anniversary, and it has already become a tradition to make a trip to celebrate it. And I love it! A long weekend far from home, exploring a new place, eating great food and relaxing… Is there any better way to celebrate great occasions? […]

Lapland II. The Bear Trail

After a very nice first day exploring the area near Rovaniemi, in our second day we drove to the Southeast part of Lapland, to Oulanka National Park, close to the border with Russia. This part of the country was traditionally Sami, until it became part of Finland around the 17th […]

Lapland. A frozen world

I love the North. I don’t know why and I know it’s not very common, specially from someone who comes from Spain, specifically from the Canary Islands. People are always looking for warmer places and tropical beaches for their holidays. But I prefer colder destinations. And it’s not because I’m […]

Winter in Elm

March is here and with it, the first signs of spring. Here in Zurich there’s hardly any trace of winter. Maybe it’s still possible to find tiny patches of snow or ice in Uetliberg, but not in the city anymore. There are tiny flowers growing already. A lot of crocuses […]
