Sunday Walk to Bireggwald

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.

Blast from the Past: Bosa, Sardinia

While I’m packing and preparing for my trip to Seychelles, I’m remembering my past travels in yet another post from the Blast from the Past series. This time I would like to take you back to warmer days of June 2013 when I travelled to beautiful Sardinia in Italy. My husband and I spent our holidays touring the island, enjoying its beautiful beaches and exploring lovely towns and villages. This particular set of photos was taken in Bosa – one of most picturesque, but also most quiet and boring towns we’ve visited in Sardinia.

Iceland. Day 4: The Golden Circle

On our fourth day in Iceland, my husband and I took a tour almost every tourist in Iceland does – the Golden Circle, a circle route comprising Iceland’s natural wonders: Þingvellir National ParkGeysir & Gulfoss waterfall. As those three sights were not enough for us, we’ve added Kerið Crater and Brúarfoss waterfall as additional stops on our tour.

Meggenhorn Castle

Meggenhorn Castle is a lovely 17th century castle located on the peninsula of Meggen on the northern shore of the Vierwaldstättersee (Lake Lucerne). It is one of my favourite places in Luzern area. The estate has been open for public since 1974 and has no entrance fee. It’s scenic and peaceful spot, popular with the locals, but not yet discovered by the masses of tourists.

Trip to Stanserhorn

Since my husband and I moved to Lucerne, we’ve visited most of the popular mountains in central Switzerland. 1898 meters high Stanserhorn is the latest summit of this area we’ve conquered few weeks ago.

Views from Stanserhorn

Stanserhorn can be found in the canton Nidwalden and is one of many Swiss mountains that can be reached by public transport. A funicular railway and cable car from the town of Stans can take you all the way to the top. There is also plenty of hiking trails, but as I suffered from minor knee injury, we opted for easier option – public transport. Continue reading

Skiing in Flumserberg

One of the perks of living in Lucerne in Switzerland is the proximity of many great Alpine ski resorts. Previous Sunday I went to explore the slopes of one of those resorts Flumserberg.
