Switzerland

It’s already summer half-time (or is it early late end already?) and all I can think of is what kind of trips I’d like to squeeze into the remaining weeks of this always too short season. I’m thinking white sandy beaches on Greek islands, bustling seaside cities like Barcelona and endless party nights spent in romantic rooftop-bars in Istanbul. The invitation for a getaway to the Engadin valley in the …

“I can see snooooow!!!”
- Every year I am looking forward to this day. When suddenly huge snowy mountains appear in front of me. When the landscape slowly turns from looking grey and dusty into a white magic winter wonderland.  That’s the time for the first shred, the first ride down a snowy piste and that first true winter feeling.

Arrival in Laax, Switzerland
When researching for a perfect snow resort a couple of …

While wrapping myself in a thick blanket with a hot water bottle and drinking tea my mind always drifts away to the snow and I can literally see myself shredding down some wicked slopes in the sunshine and finally make use of this icy weather.

I am a thrill seeker on snow, searching high and low for the perfect powder, pushing my limits so I am faster, stronger, better. Sometimes I fall, sometimes I hurt but always there are the mountains that I love and can’t resist and for ten years one mountain range in particular …

I am always amazed with the beautiful view above the clouds, be it while sitting on an airplane, climbing up a volcano or going on a ski trip. There is always a certain calmness, which makes you feel free and happy. As I have recently been on a ski holiday …

Among insiders the small village of Zermatt in Switzerland has long been one of the top destinations for a picture-perfect winter holiday. Nestled into a group of surrounding mountains, one of which being the infamous Matterhorn, Zermatt is home to around 6000 inhabitants, attracting thousands of visitors each year looking for relaxation, sports and fun. Going there for the first time I was not sure what I was in for, …

Imagine you’re on a road trip through Switzerland. It’s constantly snowing (good) but the roads you’re driving on are often slippery (bad). You’re with a friend (good) but your GPS is playing tricks on you, you spend much longer on the (slippery) road than you are meant to and you’re starving (bad). In your ideal case scenario you then arrive at a beautiful hotel in the midst of an idyllic …

A couple of weeks ago, me and my friend Rabea went on a very special road trip. Through a country that is not exactly legendary for doing road trips in – Switzerland. We flew into Zurich and from there got a rental car which we drove to ski paradise Laax, then self-proclaimed city of lights Lucerne, then on to a small but wonderful place called Adelboden and eventually to the …
