Winter hike in Alpstein

Flying over the Alps

When I was offered the opportunity I couldn’t say no. How could I resist to fly over the Alps? Sure, I don’t like airplanes so much, despite having to endure several flights every year… And yes, this time it was a very small airplane… But then again, who could say […]
