Snapshots of Engelberg

Well, my month of posting about Switzerland has come to an end, and next week I will be turning the page on the summer and begin sharing all the fun from my latest adventure of walking Wainwright’s Coast to Coast Trail with my friend, Diane. But my memories of Switzerland would not be complete without …

A Walk in Engelberg {Switzerland} (34/48)

I mentioned yesterday that we walked to and from the village of Engelberg several times every day. Sometimes we went for groceries and other times to the visitor center to use the WiFi. Most days we walked through on our way to another hike in the area or to reach the local abbey to buy …

Walk to Fluhmatt

A Walk to Fluhmatt {Switzerland} (33/48)

Because this hike was the closest one to our house in Engelberg, we did the walk to Fluhmatt several times, and often as the beginning or ending portion of another hike. For that reason I almost did not do a blog post about it as its own walk. But then I decided to go ahead, …

A Walk to Ristis {Switzerland} (31/48)

After hiking so many trails right from our front door, you would think we would have run out of walks to do in Engelberg, but Taido always managed to find us another one. Sometimes they would begin the same way, with a steep hike up the town stairs and a view overlooking the village, but …

Here’s the thing about choosing a favorite walk in Switzerland. It’s kind of hard because the whole month of walking the Swiss Alps is my favorite. But this walk to Stefali. Well, it was very special. Maybe it was the bright blue sky, or the crazy rushing waterfalls after several days of rain. Maybe it …

A Walk to Trubsee, Engelberg, Switzerland

A Walk to Trubsee {Switzerland} (29/48)

One of the most difficult hikes we did from the village of Engelberg was a climb up to this gorgeous alpine lake. Trubsee. It had rained the day after Peter and Whitney and our cousins went home, so we sat around the house and moped. They left from the train station in Engelberg with all …

Snapshots of Lucerne

Snapshots of Lucerne {Switzerland}

We spent one lovely day in Lucerne while Peter and Whitney were still with us in Switzerland. It is truly one of the most beautiful cities I have ever seen in my life. I mean come on! If it’s not enough that it has mountain views and is situated on a gorgeous lake, but hello …

A Story about Switzerland

As I have been recapping my summer travels, you might have noticed that I skipped something when I went from Paris to our trip home through the Lake District. I skipped about four weeks that we spent in Switzerland. I have been saving it, holding it in my hands and heart like a precious gem, …
