In today’s Blast from the Past post I’m taking you to Trieste, a city in northeastern Italy by the Adriatic sea. Because it is very close to the Slovenian border, it was an ideal place to visit on a day trip back in autumn of 2008 when I still lived in Slovenia. Here are some photographs I took on this trip. I hope you’ll enjoy them!
Few weekends ago, my husband and I took advantage of the sunny weather and went cycling. We cycled 30 km long section of the national cycling route number 9 from Luzern to Zug.
The cycling route number 9 is a 497 km long route between Montreux and Rorschah. Because it passes many beautiful Swiss lakes, including Lac Léman (Lake Geneva), Bodensee, and Lake Lucerne (Vierwalstättersee), it is also known as “the Lakes route”. Continue reading
The spring is in its full bloom, and I finally managed to complete the video of my February ski trip to Melchsee Frutt, a small ski resort in Central Switzerland. I hope you all enjoyed this trip down memory lane.
Despite I live in Luzern for some time now, I still haven’t explored all of its corners. Previous weekend my husband and I went to one of the parts of Luzern we’ve never been to – to Bireggwald, a peaceful forrest in the midst of Luzern with a lovely walking trails and plentiful of stunning panoramic views of the Lake Luzern (Vierwaldstättersee) and Mt. Pilatus.
Switzerland is a landlocked country. It has no access to coastline, but it that doesn’t really matter because it is a home to countless number of lakes which are just as good as any sea. My husband and I visited one of those lakes few weeks ago. We went to Lake Arni (Arnisee), small artificial lake located in the mountains of canton Uri at the altitude of 1370 meters.
Despite it doesn’t seems winter has come to an – it snowed in Luzern yesterday, my skis and ski equipment are already safely stored in our storage room. Looking back, this ski season wasn’t as plentiful as the previous ones (2015/16, 2014/15), but I still manage to spent some great time at the slopes.
- Grindelwald (January & March 2017)
- Melchsee Frutt (February 2017)
- Klewenalp-Stockhütte (March 2017)
- Sankt Moritz – Corviglia (March 2017)
Total: 5 days of skiing
Klewenalp-Stockhütte is small ski resort in Central Switzerland I have visited in mid-March with my husband. This ski resort consist of two areas: Klewenalp, which is accessible by aerial gondola from the village of Beckenried and Stockhütte , which is accessible by cable car from the village of Emmeten.
Sankt Moritz is a well known ski resort in the Upper Engadine (Oberengadin) region, in the canton Graubünden. It lies at the 1856 m altitude and has a reputation of being the birthplace of Alpine winter tourism. One of the first ski lifts in Switzeland began running in there in 1935. The town has hosted the Winter Olympics twice: in 1928 and 1948. In February it had also hosted the 2017 FIS Ski World Championship. As such, it was a clear choice for this year’s annual ski trip with my father, brother and husband.
