Rigi

Rigi is still one of my favourite mountains and it’s been a wonderful day!
It’s quite warm for this time of year, so there isn’t as much snow as one would expect. The landscape is spotted green and white and the view is incredible as always.
In one picture you can see the giant antenna from the top of the mountain looking as if it would stand next to a slope post in a green field.
Have a great next week everyone and keep looking around for the beauty of the nature.
In Zurich (and pretty sure in other places as well) you can see crocuses and snowdrops sprouting.

St. Peter’s Island

After a nice thermal bath in Yverdon-les-bains, where even a raven took a bath, we walked around St. Peter’s Island (St. Petersinsel), which is a peninsula in Lake Biel in the canton of Bern. It has ancient birch trees and the walk was wonderfully peaceful, not only because we hardly met any people, but also because the way is straight and mostly flat.

 

Creux du Van

“Creux du Van is a Swiss Jura carving on the border between the cantons of Neuch√Ętel and Vaud. It is about 1200 meters wide and 500 meters deep. The total length of the rock faces, which drop about 160 meters vertically, is about four kilometers. The area lies at the Mont Soliat at 1200 to 1450 m above sea level.” (Wikipedia)

We drove a lovely drive towards Creux du Van and wandered through such a beautiful landscape with fantastic view and even saw some chamois! See yourself:

Alp Flix

This weekend we’ve spent at Alp Flix, which is a high plateau with a large moor in the Grisons Alps in Switzerland. We slept in a lovely yurt-hotel with a wood stove. Its lovingly furnished restaurant is in the former stable and warmly served with delicious food. Today we discovered the beautiful surroundings by foot. It’s stunning!

Have a good new week everyone and thanks to my work colleagues who made this experience possible for me.

Ticino

Last weekend we went camping in Ticino. It was wonderful! The weather was perfect, the forest lovely and the canoe trip on the lake just great.
I really love camping and I’m glad for so many great impressions!
Here are some pictures and I’ll take some more of the magical bridge without people on it another time.
