Parco Nationale Gran Paradiso – Valnontey

We wanted to use the last day without snow for a long hike in the national park Gran Paradiso which is known for its wildlife with ibex, marmot and eagles. We parked the camper van on the public parking space in Valnontey where we slept 2 nights. The campsite was already closed when we arrived,…

A hike on Hintere Schöntaufspitze (3325m)

After a peaceful night we got ready for the planned hike to the summit of the Hintere Schöntaufspitze. We decided to make use of the cable car to climb the first meters of height, still around 700 meters of height left. If the weather would have been good the place is perfect for a mountain…

On our way to Sulden or how to survive narrow pass roads

The weather starts to change and rain is forecasted almost all over Europe. We were looking for the next place to stop by and decided to head to Sulden to conquer an easy 3000+ summit. The weather forecast was not great but okay. We decided to take scenic routes to reach Sulden from Levico Terme…

Enjoying a week at Lago di Levico

2020 has been a different year for everybody so far. While we took social distancing very serious we also did not go on vacation, even not on road trips, whilst this would have been a safe thing to do. Thus we decided to start our 3 weeks roadtrip at the end of the summer holidays…

How to fall in love with Zermatt

We planned to stay 2 nights in Zermatt, while I am writing this post we are spending our forth one in Täsch, Camping Alphubel, close to Zermatt. Zermatt and the surrounding mountains are simply so beautiful and fascinating that we had to stay longer to explore more of this special location. A mecca for MTB…

Quick stop at Interlaken

The weather in Zermatt was not optimal so we decided to take an interim break at Interlaken to have a rest day. We stayed one night at TCS Camping Interlaken directly next to the river Aare. And once more directly next to the railway and in addition to that next to the mooring point for…

A weekend at Riederalp

Getting there … I really feel blessed having made such good relationships with so many colleagues during my career. It is always nice to keep in touch – even if it is not on a regular basis. I spent quite some time working for an account located in Switzerland, this is where I met the…

The last night on the Flüela pass

We left Finale Ligure on 13th September 2018 with the fabulous plan to drive to Livigno, sleep there, do another day riding the fancy bikepark there and then head home. Unfortunately the weather in the alps started to change from sunny to rainy on our way back, so we just had a quick stop in…
