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 […]

Griesslisee, the little glacier lake

It’s been more than two months since the last time I went to the mountains. At that time, landscapes were still white and pristine, lakes were frozen… Since then, spring has arrived, unusually dry and warm. The snow has melted almost everywhere and the green grass covers the idyllic Swiss […]

Hike to Steingletscher

I write this post from Spain. I’ve been here already for a few weeks, enjoying my time with family and friends. The weather is warm, the days are still long… I’ve been at the beach, I’ve explored a few new places and I’m having a great time just relaxing at […]

The Gauli Glacier

One of the best things of Swiss summer is the opportunity to see glaciers. During winter and spring, glaciers and the area around them are covered in thick snow and it’s not easy to appreciate them: you can only see white shapes, not much else, in case you’re lucky enough […]
