Greetings from Weisstannen

Weisstannen is a pretty little Swiss village surrounded by mountains and boasting an arena you can see four spectacular waterfalls from. It is also an entry point to the UNESCO World Heritage Tectonic Arena Sardona.

Before or after you go on a hike, though, you can enjoy a refreshment in the almost 250 years old former post office. While you sip a homemade syrup and maybe indulge on a handmade meringue, you most probably can’t take your eyes off of all the charming items and details originating from days long gone.

What’s more, a witch lives here somewhere… While they were considered as bad back in the old days, they nowadays are kindly spoken of as hedge witches (German: Kräuterhexen). The one in Weisstannen is a very knowledgeable one, who produces lotions, salves, teas, and oils with local herbs, some of which grow in the garden around the old post office. Her name is Gafarra and who knows you may meet her while buying some of her produce in the shop you also find in this historic house.

Now that you are ready, a three-hour return mountain hike takes you to Batöni – the waterfall arena. Wear suitable hiking boots as there is no transportation on witches’ brooms (German: Hexenbesen)! :0)

      2. Oh, very cool! What was your favourite underwater sighting? A fish, nudibranch, turtle, shark, a type of coral?
        Yes, planet earth luckily still offers a lot of wonders and so much beauty ✨


      3. I spoke about this in my lastest posts. I would probably have to say is the nurse sharks. They are adorable when you see them in real life. They look scary at first but they are somewhat harmless

        Oh, wonderful choice. I find them very cute. I had the pleasure to observe them in the Dry Tartugas some years ago.
        I am a shark lover anyway 💝.

      How wonderful that you share so many years and memories with your love 💗. And you know what, Hawaii is a place I would love to explore one day, but it is such a long way from Switzerland.
      I look forward to hear how you like it.
