This summer took the Halls back to the Alps riding trains, climbing mountains and swimming anywhere and everywhere.
Regular, punctual, clean trains criss-crossing the country. What more could you want, FFS? This one’s resting at Geneva.
Views from the First cable car
The ridiculously scenic and accessible walk from the First cable car in Grindelwald to Bachalpsee. Want to leave the crowds behind? Have a dip in the see when you get there!
On a cloudy, drizzly day we walked along the floor of the Lauterbrunnen Valley. I was very happy.
After blowing the budget on the Jungfraujoch it was initially dispiriting to find the view wasn’t there. Minutes, later, the above panorama was…
Extremely Swiss and extremely bonny cow above Kleine Scheidegg
Cog railway infrstructure somehow adding to the glories all around
‘There is a mountain. There is another. There is…’ (son listens politely)
Not a bad spot for a local pool. Grindelwald.
The fast-flowing Aare in Bern. An alternative means of transport for locals.
A signposted river for swimmers. How civilised!
