      Embracing the Rain in St. Moritz

      October 24, 2023 in Switzerland โ‹… ๐ŸŒง 5 ยฐC

      Mother Nature had a different plan for today - a day filled with relentless rain. While photography proved to be quite a challenge in these conditions, we were determined to make the most of the day.

      Undeterred by the weather, we embarked on a two-hour walk through the forest and around the picturesque lake in St. Moritz. The raindrops fell gently around us, creating a serene ambiance as we meandered along the forest paths and embraced the tranquil beauty of the lake. The mist shrouded the landscape, adding an air of mystery to our journey.

      Despite the wet weather, our Border Collies, Awen and Nessy, were as enthusiastic as ever, their tails wagging and their spirits undampened. It was a reminder that nature's beauty isn't confined to sunny days; even in the rain, St. Moritz had a unique charm.

      Upon returning to our cozy haven, we decided to warm up with a steaming cup of tea. The comforting embrace of hot tea was the perfect remedy for the chills we had acquired during our wet adventure.

      Lago di St. Moritz

      Giro intorno al lago di St. Moritz. Giornata piacevole, fresca (-4), cielo velato. Ha nevicato i giorni precedenti. Il lago non sta ancora ghiacciando. Stanno preparando le piste. Gli abeti verdi con la lèggerà spolverata di neve bianca sono sublimi. ๐ŸŒฒRead more

    • Day 1


      September 24, 2023 in Switzerland โ‹… โ˜€๏ธ 8 ยฐC

      Umbrail war gesperrt und die Umleitung durch einen Tunnel auch! Musst also sehr viel weiter durch die Schweiz als geplant.
      Also Ofenpass dann Bernina. War aber auch richtig geil. Direkt am Gletscher vorbei.
      Schweiz ist halt Hammer weil immer schöne Gipfel zu sehen sind.
      Habe einen netten BMW Fahrer getroffen. Wollte auch Umbrail. Haben uns dann mehrmals am Straßenrand getroffen auf der Suche nach der besten Route. Jetzt ärgere ich mich dass ich nicht nach seinen Kontaktdaten gefragt habe. War vom Fahrstil her gut passend.

      Bernina Express

      April 9, 2023 in Switzerland โ‹… โ˜€๏ธ -2 ยฐC

      Am nächsten Tag folgt gleich die nächste Panoramastrecke: Der Bernina-Express.
      Laut Durchsage führt die Strecke auf 122 km über 196 Brücken und durch 55 Tunnels. Da hat man aber wirklich jede kleine Brücke und jede Unterführung mitgezählt. Während der Fahrt kommt es mir jedenfalls nicht so viel vor.
      Die Route führt von Chur über St. Moritz nach Tirano in Italien.
      Meiner Meinung nach ist Bernina noch besser als Glacier. Abwechslungsreicher und einen Pass überquert man hier auch. Leider kann man das vom Zug nicht so gut einfangen, weil man immer nur zur Seite rausschauen kann. Zu Fuß oder mit Fahrrad ist doch besser ๐Ÿ˜†

      Glacier Express: Zermatt to St. Moritz

      September 21, 2023 in Switzerland โ‹… โ˜๏ธ 48 ยฐF

      We boarded the 8:52 train in Zermatt for our all day ride on this iconic, panoramic train. ๐Ÿš‚.

      The railway runs through green alpine valleys , hillsides of farmland and larch trees, alongside glacial rivers, in the shadow of mountain peaks. The landscape is dotted with chalets, cows, and sheep. The Swiss could have invented the word “pastoral.”

      The train ride invites you to relax and immerse yourself in the countryside. There’s even a channel on the entertainment system that plays endless Swiss folk tunes!

      An onboard restaurant serves passengers drinks and meals cooked from scratch on board. They offer a selection of Swiss traditional foods and some international dishes.

      We were seated next to a multigenerational family of six who were visiting Switzerland from Singapore. Their little ones (ages 4 and 6) behaved beautifully for their 6 hour ride. We enjoy talking with the parents and grandparents. It was amazing how alike our families were, despite living at opposite sides of the planet. Travel is not just eye-opening, it can be heart-opening as we realize how alike we all are. โค๏ธ

      A highlight of the trip is the Landwasser Viaduct , a single-track six-arched curved limestone railway viaduct. Opened 1902, it has stood the test of time and is an engineering marvel.

      We cruised into a very quiet St. Moritz - asleep until the BIG winter ski season. We’re just here overnight. Tomorrow we head to Zurich.

      St Moritz

      January 13 in Switzerland โ‹… โ˜€๏ธ -4 ยฐC

      As we aren't the most avid skiiers, and St Mortiz is mostly a ski town, we kept our plans simple and tried to wander around the river and see what the town has to offer. What we found was that we do not have the gear capable of spending much time in the snow. We began our day with a quick body warming Gluhwein before cracking onto the river walk. Because the start of the walk is protected from the sun by the mountain, the icy path and the slight breeze was piercing through our many layers. It didn't take long until I had completely lost feeling in my toes and had to pick up the pace to try and find some sun again. About halfway through the walk, my toes began to seriously hurt, I simply didn't have the shoes capable of surviving in these alpine regions. Although I did thoroughly enjoy the walk, I enjoyed the second half more where I could soak up some rays and let myself thaw out. Luckily, the moment we began walking in the sun, my toes stopped hurting, regained feeling, and began functioning properly. Although quite weak at this time of the year, the difference the direct sunlight makes on your body is insane. As such, we completed our walk around the perimeter by ending where we started yesterday, at the train station. Here we found a cafe where we could stop for a Gluhwein and rest. After this, we began our tour of the town to see what might be on offer. Though the town centre was as small as the town itself, it had all the stores that you might expect from a luxury alpine ski town. Gucci, Prada, and all the rest lined the streets. This made our wander significantly quicker as we obviously saw no desire to pop in and have a look around. That being said, we could hardly complain as the town itself was beautiful and warranted exploring. The tiny houses with pointy rooves, unique architecture, and colours truly made the walk worth it on its own. We saw a few landmarks that the city has, mostly a couple tours, before continuing back down the hill toward our hostel. We stopped for some groceries again to keep us going as cheaply as possible before calling it a day.Read more

      Vielleicht liegt es daran, dass wir nur eine Nacht hier verbringen. Oder es liegt an unserem eingeschränkten Budget. St. Moritz überzeugt uns nicht wirklich. Dennoch... mit der Rolltreppe runter zum See. Im Yachtclub essen wir Burger.Read more

      Hotel Hauser

      September 21, 2023 in Switzerland โ‹… โ˜๏ธ 48 ยฐF

      Our overnight in St. Moritz is the Hotel Hauser.

      The hotel uses all natural, local materials in its construction- larch wood and pine, quartzite tile, and woolen textiles. On request, you can get a pillow filled with pine shavings! They recommend it highly, so we’re both sleeping with one tonight.

      We had dinner in the hotel restaurant, a Rick Steves recommended “good value.” It was excellent!

      They also have a bakery. Perhaps we’ll pick up some snacks tomorrow morning for our train ride to Zurich.

      Heidi, Bob und Moritz

      May 29, 2023 in Switzerland โ‹… โ›… 10 ยฐC

      Die Männer tragen Mütze heute Abend .... es ist frisch geworden, hier auf dem Berg.

      Unser heutiger Ausflug nach St. Moritz, wo wir einen kurzen Blick auf Gucci, Hermes, Breitling & co warfen, führte uns dann später zu viel interessanteren Orten.

      Uns gefiel die älteste (seit 1904) noch betriebene Bobbahn der Welt viel besser und nachdem wir noch mehrere 100 Höhenmeter bergauf radelten, zur Heidihütte mitten im Skigebiet von St. Moritz, waren wir vollends zufrieden.

      Zurück im Tal wehte eine recht frische Brise, sodass wir nun im Vorzelt bei Rotwein, Bier und Heizer den Abend gemütlich ausklingen lassen...
