Göscheneralp hike has a really local vibe if you are looking for a quiet day in the mountains.  As you make your way around the glacier lake, babbling water running into the lake adds to the serenity of it all. The hike itself is not overly strenuous, but takes about 4 hrs. But if your little one gets tired along the way, it’s still worth while to do a partial hike, getting close-up views of the glacier.

Aus Feuerfluss,
Aus Sturz und Faltung,
Aus Gischterguss
Und Steinerkaltung,
Aus dem Gewirr des Aufbruchs zur Gestalt,
Erwuchs mein Bau durch ordnende Gewalt. •
Tief in des Berges geheimen Gelass,
Jählings gefügt in das gültige Mass,
Ist mir gegeben, in Schönheit zu künden,
Dass sich die Teile zum Ganzen finden:
Flut bleibt nicht Wasser und Erde nicht Stein,
Allem ist eigen, Gebilde zu sein,
Nie wird die Kraft zur Verschmelzung erliegen
Ewig das eine ins andere sich fügen.
•
Der Glut enttaucht, die schaffend waltet
Emporgehaucht, ins Licht gestaltet,
Besteh’ ich leuchtend meine Zeit,
Zum Sturz ins neue Mass bereit.

#Ad CAMPING! ⛺️⛺️⛺️ We’ve learnt a few things in the past 24 hours as first time campers. Firstly, never presume the people who pitched before you put their tent up in the best position! 🤓 We were so thrilled we got our @vango_outdoor tent up in just over 15 minutes yesterday but realised this morning it wasn’t 100% straight. We’d not really considered which way our door should face either (rookie error! 😂). We had our first outdoor breakfast this morning, 🍳 taking in the most spectacular views, before re-pitching our tent. Same location just straight with our door facing a felled tree trunk - in effect creating a homely dining space outside the tent! It was super easy to do, we didn’t even have to dismantle this Winslow 600, just take up the tent pegs, move it and secure! If we got a couple of extra tent poles, we could even turn part of our door into an awning. We still have great views too - swipe to see. Our first night on a campsite in the Swiss Alps also taught us it gets cold 🥶 in the night. POD was snug as a bug in a rug in her sleeping bag 😃 Ours are borrowed from my lovely in-laws and while superb, they’re older so don’t provide as much warmth for sleeping in the Alps - we’re cosy and layered up though! I’m not sure I like sleeping on an air bed but mine did partially deflate in the night - we did have POD in charge of those! 😍 We don’t know if we’ve just struck lucky but this campsite is awesome! Not only is the scenery spectacular, the showers and toilet blocks are just a couple of minutes walk away and squeaky clean! We’ve had a brilliant day today cooking our own meals, exploring the campsite (POD has been in the pool twice!) and discovering what the local area has to offer. We’ve met some great people opposite us from the Netherlands who pointed out eagles circling above the mountains earlier. Here’s to a great nights sleep tonight and more wandering tomorrow! #forwhereveryougo #vango #ukftb

A year ago we were in Switzerland preparing for our trip to Nepal.  Hiking to the top is often hard, but once you reach the top the reward is so high I would do it again. In real life it isn't any different. Always go for what you believe in. The road is not always going to be easy, but the reward for sure will be 😘

This natural balcony overlooking Lake Lugano is called "Sasso delle parole" (~Stone of Words) because generations of lovers have etched their thoughts and wishes on the rocks...⁠

Climbing the Col de la Croix de Coeur at the recent @tourdesstations reminded me how beautiful and quiet this pass is. We went back with @saaal74 yesterday to catch the morning light. Another early wake up but we’ll have all winter to sleep in, right?
