My birthday present

My birthday is here again… oh, time flies!!! I’ve been thinking about what I should post for this week and it wasn’t easy to choose a theme or a series of photos. The fact that we haven’t been hiking that much lately doesn’t help either… But I was having a […]

Lapland V. A day with the Huskies

When I started planing this trip to Lapland, I was sure I wanted to do one special activity there. For a region where snow covers everything for most part of the year, there are so many things to do there… Cross country ski, snowshoeing, ice fishing… I can do a […]

Lapland III. Above the Arctic Circle

It wasn’t until our third day in Lapland that we actually went above the Arctic Circle. The first two days (you can find the photos from those days here and here), we just explored forested areas that were located under the Napapiiri (the Finnish word for Arctic Circle). But it […]

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 […]

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 […]

A day in Engelberg

The weather has been great lately here in Switzerland. Blue sky, shiny sun, warm temperatures… It has made me forget about the last snowfall we had a few weeks ago! I was trying to take some photos in the forest near home, but I only got poor photos, a wet […]

Arnisee

Winter. Before we moved to Switzerland, this season always meant staying at home on weekends… Coffee, blanket and good movies. Ok, it sounds like a great plan for these cold and dark days. But after we arrived in Switzerland we changed our routines. Now, weekends mean mountains. And winter doesn’t […]
