Postcard from the Swiss Alps. 03/12/2017 Schilthorn
Don’t make the mountain your enemy – get out, get up there instead

It’s the last weekend of summer time and UBS mountain offer, and what a weather to take full advantage of! Though today I kind of needed to sleep long and therefore in the end took the right turn, opposite to the initial plan to reach Schilthorn on time for the last cable car down (left turn, and then from the “back side” to the summit).
But like the mountain rule goes, rather turn back in the last minute, than not come back at all. So there I was, enjoying views, the work out, the sun, the inversion(it’s been extremely warm & sunny these days, for October at least), the silence (though Florence jukebox inside my head) and cheap cable cars down to save my knees.
It’s about a time to earn my next winter turns and work my body these weekends, though I have to say that if the weather wouldn’t have been this great, I’d kick started the downdays of November in Berner Weinmesse or in Helsinki. But luckily the weather offered something even better. Have to earn that wine too, you see.
And November will come, no matter what.
Hei kävin taas vuorilla. Viimeinen viikonloppu, jolloin voi hyödyntää pankin 10€ tarjouslippuja “cable car”eihin (ei muuten enää hajuakaan mitä nämä ovat suomeksi; ei gondoleita mutta… Auttakaa!). Ja sopivasti viikonloppu tarjoaa myös pilvettömän taivaan, auringon ja lähes 20°C lämpötilan ja inversion. T-paidalla olisi pärjännyt, jos olisi muistanut aurinkorasvan.
There are these days. Perfect days. Details of which I’d like to keep to myself. But then I think how happiness is only real when shared. And even though already shared with a good friend, let’s share this here too.
This is what happens when Scandinavian Blondes® go high. Not bad views, not at all.
