  • Leukerbad (1/2) – Gemmi Pass & Leukerbad Therme

    Since I came to Switzerland two and half years ago, I have visited the Canton of Valais a few times. However, it wasn’t until recently that I discovered a gem in the Alps, Leukerbad.

    Le Moléson is a mountain of the Swiss Prealps, overlooking the region of Gruyères in the canton of Fribourg. In fact, the first time that I heard about it was when I was on Rochers de Naye, the parent peak of  Le Moléson. This time, when I was planning my trip to the demonstration cheese dairy […]

  • Monte San Giorgio and the Fossil museum – A sea of memories

    If you think fossils are just stones, then I’m afraid you have made a huge mistake. Fossils are books which tell us what happened millions of years ago. I guess through nothing else could people know what happened such  long time ago. Thanks to all the geologists and paleontologist who bring the past to the […]

Anymore, having one more way of traveling in Switzerland […]
