The ascent to Augstmatthorn

Summer has arrived and, with it, restrictions have ended in Switzerland. Little by little we are returning to normality. The only reminder of the epidemic is the few people that wear masks on the streets of Zurich and the hand sanitizer at the door of every shop and restaurant… These […]

Hiking in green Appenzell

Mountain trains and cable cars are open again here in Switzerland. Another step to normality and, officially, the beginning of the hiking season. Yeeeiiii!!!!

Snowshoeing in Melchsee-Frutt

My 2020 has begun very quietly. Like every year, I spent Christmas holidays in Spain, enjoying the festive days with my family, eating a lot, shopping for presents, meeting our best friends… and not so much more! Even if I brought my camera (I always do), it has been in […]

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 […]
