My little trip around the world continues...
Switzerland, my dear Home. This is where I live since 2013 in the city of Basel.
I love the beauty of each parts of this country whatever the weather, you can do something.
Go skiing in the mountains, visiting other cities and lakes, so much things to go and so beautiful natural landscape and nature to see.
It is clean, safe and people are open. Lot's of rules but I like that! Everything is mostly well organized and people show respect.
With my car whenever I have some free time I travel around, so convenient !
- In few words: calm, clean, cozy, beautiful nature and amazing views... -

Places to Visit
#5seewanderung Pizol 5 lakes hike :11 km - 4/5 hours on a great sunday.
Longest and "dangerous" hike ever in some parts (!) First the sun, then cold, ice, snow, mud, stepping up and more up feeling like i am doing squatts and lunges for hours... and then the wind which almost tries to push you to the edge! Ice melting making the way slippery but when you get to one lake bright turquoise colour you are more than happy ! A crazy adventure :) All this for fascinating views!
One of Switzerland’s most gorgeous hikes The Five Lakes Hike in Pizol among alp walks. The Pizol Glacier and a prevalent mountain path featured with five crystal turquoise clear lakes and spectacular views over outstanding landscapes.

This is the most renowned mountain lakes in Switzerland above the town of Kandersteg. The area around the lake is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Jungfrau Aletsch. Impressive natural features, many hikes with amazing views, super clean water, and countless waterfalls… Unique!
