    Great St Bernard Pass

    September 19, 2018 in Switzerland ⋅ ☀️ 46 °F

    Dean drove us to the top of the Great St Bernard Pass, which is 8100 ft elevation. It was originally used as a Roman trade route between Italy and Gaul (France and much of mid-Europe). It was crossed by Napoleon and his troops in 1800 as it was the easiest way across the Alps. The pass is also famous for the hospice (refuge) at the top, built by St Bernard in 1049, to provide hospitality to travelers on the very difficult route. The statue of St Bernard shows him slaying the devil (representing the hazards of the trip).

    St. Bernard dogs were bred by the monks in the 1800s to help them find lost travelers. There are some St Bernards at the top of the mountain but of course, they are not used for rescue anymore. They are for photo ops.

    Verbier, Switzerland

    February 3, 2018 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ -2 °C

    Friends we made in Vietnam, Eddy and Inga, work at the famous Swiss ski resort, Verbier. They invited us to come stay in the lodging above the bar they are working at so we jumped at the offer. Our Australian friend Adam is working in England so he joined us for a weekend of snowboarding and fun. When we arrived, Andreas and I were both blown away by the quaint beauty of this snowy village among the Swiss alps. The first night we went out to ‘Apre Ski,’ basically drinks after a hard day of skiing. We danced the night away to a band in a packed bar and were glad to have our snow jackets as the done thing is to spray your beer over the crowd (no idea why).

    We woke up to a snow storm so we decided to go sledding. Now this isn’t ordinary sledding. You take the gondola up and sled down a 40 min run similar to a ski slope. It gets wild! This is unfortunately why I had my accident and hurt my knee. However, I think it was worth it because the run before I injured myself I told Andreas “my happiness levels are maxed out!” On the positive, I got to ride down in a medic toboggan and on a snow mobile. Diagnosis: partially torn MCL, stretched ACL, and bruised bone. I have to wear a hinged brace for a while and then it should be ok.

    Andreas, Adam, and Eddy went up snowboarding the next two days. I was jealous as it was blue bird skies with perfect powder. Needless to say, they had an awesome time. I still rode the gondola all the way to the top, drank hot chocolate, and threw a few snowballs. Verbier kicked my butt physically but it was still a weekend we will always remember. We will be back for you Verbier!!

    À la Fouly !

    On se souviendra :
    Des retrouvailles à Arp Nouvaz Cap après 30 minutes de retard.
    De la première montée au grand col Ferret qui était magnifique mais s'est fini sous la brume.
    De l'atmosphere embrumée au niveau du col.
    Du déjeuner "Montgolfière" au refuge de la Peule.
    De la fin de marche vers la Fouly en suivant les indications de l'Ultra Trail Mont-Blanc.
    Du camping de la Fouly et du dîner pattes pesto dans le réfectoire.
