on the trail // hiking hoch-ybrig

A few weeks ago, one of my sister’s best friend’s sister, Hannah, visited for the weekend during a summer trip to Europe. She took the opportunity for a little detour from a stay in Berlin and we made sure she had an adventure to remember in Switzerland. However, after the hike we took, I’m not […]

freitag favorites + resting up

Thank goodness for a free Friday (after working Tuesday) with nothing to do and some extra time to catch up on rest already before the weekend. Martin and I have both been feeling tired this week, probably mostly due to staying up late watching track and field over the last week, but then he woke […]

on the trail // rigi panorama trail

In early June we had another opportunity to share one of our favorite nearby mountains (and views) with friends visiting from Alaska. It was a beautiful early summer Saturday and we decided on the easy and scenic Rigi panorama trail followed by lunch and a stop at the Mineralbad. It was the perfect opportunity for […]

freitag favorites + hiking above the heat

The weekend is finally here and after another hot, muggy week I’m especially happy to be heading back up to the mountains tomorrow for our first mountain/lake hiking adventure tomorrow, where hopefully it will be at least a bit cooler than here at home. (Above is a photo from last weekend on Hoch Ybrig. It […]

wish-listed // 08.2017

on the trail // walensee waterfall walk

I’m happy to say that we’ve gotten an earlier start on our hiking season this year vs. last (though we’ve been stalled a bit in the last few weeks). Our first real hike this year was a beautiful, if a little steep, way to start the summer hiking season. It was the last few days […]

wish-listed // 07.2017

How can it already be July? I feel like the summer is already picking up speed and I’m not even ready for it yet. Today the weather is cooler and breezy and we’re excited to be celebrating a friend’s wedding this afternoon. Even Reese is excited about the “hochzeit,” primarily because she finally gets to […]

swiss summer hiking goals

I’ve mentioned in my last few posts that I’m really excited about this summer’s hiking season. I would love to be hiking every weekend, and though this hasn’t been the case so far as Martin has been gone the last few weekends on sporting-related trips, I’m ready to get going. So, let’s start by setting […]
