A toast to one hundred

Here comes my 100th story – hooray – and I would like to take you to the mountains to cheer.

Shortly after the lockdown was lifted here, my hubby and I were ready to go exploring again (<— click for some awesome Swiss landscapes we saw). Travelling to a region in the Bernese Alps where we have not spent that much time yet, the weather and the time was perfect for hiking.

So we went. Starting in one small village up through forest, wildflower meadows, along a mountain stream, at some point sharing the path with cows munching on rich pasture, and then reaching the height overviewing the whole Alpine valley and spotting a house…

Maybe because it had to be that I entered this passage to the platforms early… For what I got presented with was simply mind-boggling and not something I had ever seen before.

Two years of blogging

Two years ago, we would never have thought, let alone dared to imagine, that something like what we see and experience in the world right now would ever be possible.

The coronavirus made the human madness stop in the blink of an eye. While I truly hope you are all safe and sound, coping reasonably well with this new and remarkable situation, I trust that the coronavirus is here for a very good reason. It not only stops us from craziness for example but also makes very clear that we are all equal and interconnected. Read more
