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 […]

Golden Obersee

It’s been a bit over two and a half years since I moved to Switzerland. Since the very first moment, and every time the weather has allowed us, we’ve been busy exploring this great little country, mostly hiking and wandering in the beautiful Swiss Alps. It has been a delightful […]

When seasons meet

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 […]

The Ridgeline hike in Stoos

Last year we tried to do one of the hikes with best views in Switzerland: the ridgeline hike in Stoos (you can see the photos from that day here). But poor planing and a bad choice of date made the hike a little bit of an odyssey. We went in […]

We saw the Great Alescht Glacier and walked inside the carved ice cave inside the Rhône Glacier… All of these […]

The fairy tale valley

There are magical places. No matter how many times you’ve been there, you can’t get enough of them. Switzerland has a lot of those places. I’ve been living here for two years and I’ve discovered some of these places… And I keep discovering them! But I also like to revisit […]

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 […]
