    Valle Verzasca

    August 1, 2019 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    I'm now adding a few more places to this album, despite not having done the trip this time, but in previous weekends.
    The first was the weekend in Valle Verzasca, where we spent a weekend exploring the little streams and valleys at the end of Valle Verzasca.Read more

    After visiting Aisha, Awen's sister, in Wallis and going for a small walk, we took our final trip home crossing the Nufenenpass. A last hike up the mountain and searching some cristals before heading back home.Read more

    3 passes in 1 day

    July 31, 2019 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    We spent the night on the Glaubenbühlpass, the connection between Entlebuch/Sörenberg and Brünig/Lungern. As some thunderstorms were predicted, I used the cover for the van, which non only kept me try, but also warm. The following morning we did a nice little walk on the shoulder of the hill before heading for our second pass, the Brünig. As the weather still was very cloudy, we did a small walk on the Aare canyon in Meiringen. Unfortunately, on the 3rd pass, the Grimselpass, which I had planned to spend the night, the weather was so bad (8C and thick fog prevented us from going on a nice walk), we just spent an hour on the top so Awen could run around the snow.
    Down in Wallis, we decided to stay on a small camping place. Very basic and quite, with a lot of nature and water around. Perfect for us and great for doing a little walk in the forest.

    An afternoon on the beach

    July 30, 2019 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    This afternoon I was visiting Awen's parents and sister and enjoyed a beautiful afternoon on a little private beach on the shores of lake Thun. Four Border Collies swimming, running, playing for hours, none was tired. (Except Pelé, who is now 11 years old and needs a few minutes break after an hour playing).Read more

    Our morning walk took us to the cute Justital, a small valley near Sigriswil. At the end of the valley, there's a small farm that serves local cheese and milk. The perfect place to enjoy local breakfast.Read more

    Oberer Gurnigel

    July 29, 2019 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Since we could not do any SUP, we decided to move on to our next destination, the Gantrisch Nature Park. We parked the car at an amazing location with a beautiful view over Thun and the lake of Thun. But first, it was time for our second hike of the day, up to the Oberer Gurnigel, a little hill with a fantastic view over the region.Read more

    After we were chased away by a farmer and his goats at the Gantrisch Lake, we decided to go to the near place of Schwarzsee. A nice little tour around the lake made a nice morning walk and gave Awen the chance to swim. Since the weather did not get better and the sun kept hiding behind clouds, the SUP had to remain in the car for once.Read more
