      St. Moritz

      January 12 in Switzerland ⋅ ☀️ -5 °C

      The got off the Bernina Express at the famous ski town of St. Moritz. This is where all the glamorous people come to be seen, so the perfect place for us.

      And it's the perfect place to be if you like really cold weather... like -13° cold weather. The sun was out and the sky was blue, but it was bloody cold.Read more

      Hotel Hauser

      September 21, 2023 in Switzerland ⋅ ☁️ 48 °F

      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.

      Embracing the Rain in St. Moritz

      October 24, 2023 in Switzerland ⋅ 🌧 5 °C

      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

      November 18, 2023 in Switzerland ⋅ 🌫 -4 °C

      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. 🌲Read more

      St. Moritz ici St. Moritz. Le lac entouré de montagnes est magnifique, mais on ne vit définitivement pas dans le même monde que la bourgeoisie qui côtoie cette ville.
      Ici la langue parlée change d'un village à un autre. Exemple à St.Moritz, la langue officielle est l'allemand, au village d'à côté (5km), la langue officielle est le romanche et à côté à Pontresina (7,8km) la langue officielle est l'italien. On comprend mieux l'expression : "Si les Suisses s'entendent si bien, c'est parce qu'ils ne se comprennent pas."

      Glacier Express: Zermatt to St. Moritz

      September 21, 2023 in Switzerland ⋅ ☁️ 48 °F

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

      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. ❤️

      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.

      Heidi, Bob und Moritz

      May 29, 2023 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

      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...

      St Moritz

      January 13 in Switzerland ⋅ ☀️ -4 °C

      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

      הרכבת אל החופש

      July 4, 2023 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

      סיפור שהיה, כך היה:
      ביום ששי שעבר עלתה בנו המחשבה שממש יהיה נחמד לתת לעבודה קצת לנוח ולנסוע לאיזה טיול אופניים במקום קריר ונעים.
      ביום שבת כבר היו כרטיסי טיסה, עד ראשון בצהריים כל המלונות הוזמנו ושבוע לאחר מכן אנחנו כבר כאן!
      נחתנו במילאנו אתמול בלילה והיום נסענו ברכבת למרכז מילאנו, משם ברכבת אחרת דרך אגם קומו, אוטובוס לטיראנו, מסעדת גורמה בטיראנו ו..הרכבת עם הנוף היפה בארופה - קו ברנינה שמתחיל באיטליה ועובד לשווייץ. הרכבת עולה מ 420מ ל 2300 מטר, תוך שהיא מתעקלת בספירלות בהרים, עולה על גשרים, מתפתלת ליד אגמים וקרחונים עד לסנט מוריץ. סנט מוריץ היא עיירת סקי יפיפיה ופלצנית במיוחד.
      חנויות ארמאני וחבריו, מכוניות פרארי ורולס רויס עם נהג ו..אנחנו.
      מיד אכלנו גלידה יוקרתית וטעימה כדי להתרגל לאווירה.
      הגענו למלון המדהים שלנו, קיבלנו חדר עם נוף לאגם.
      אפילו השמש לא רוצה פה ללכת לישון. טיילנו באור ליד האגם ב 21 בערב והתיידדנו עם הברווזים.
      לכל הדעות -הספק נאה ליום אחד
