I just came back from a week of mountaineering in Switzerland. The score – 4 broken nails, 3 blisters, countless cuts and bruises, 2 mountains climbed (the Allalinhorn and the Weisshorn). My original plan was to write an extensive trip report. Then I had a look at the pictures and realised words are completely unnecessary here.
Of course, Switzerland is not only mountaineering. On the last day, as I was returning the rented boots and crampons to the store in Zermatt, I got swarmed by what appeared to be a folklore festival. Unexpectedly, I got an express dose of culture into the bargain.
I can warmly recommend the Attermenzen camping in Randa. Hottest showers ever, and if you outwalk the landlady on the climb to the Weisshorn hut with a 20 kg backpack, you’ll earn her respect and free schnapps at the camping restaurant.
As anyone who’s seen an episode of Top Gear knows, one must exit on a bombshell. Here it comes:
