Exactly one month ago I went on a 3-day hike adventure as I never did before.
Usually when I go hiking it’s either a 1-day trip, or if we go away for a few days what we do is stay in mountain hostels/hotels. We also normally hike in circles so we can come back to the same place every night. That way we can leave our stuff in the room and carry just the essential in our backpacks.
This time a couple of friends challenged us to a 3-day hike, going from one place to another and sleeping in cabins – which meant having to carry one big backpack with everything in it (including a sleeping bag). I was a bit apprehensive to be honest, as it was so much heavier than what I am used to… but my body quickly adapted.
I didn’t take any photos on the first day because we hiked for 8 hours with a lot of steep climbs, it was quite an effort! And it rained a bit towards the end, so I just took a couple of pics with my phone. With that said, this photo diary starts on the second day at the cabin where we spent the first night.
I know some people who read my blog don’t enjoy hiking or don’t particularly love mountains – you know who you are 😉 But I hope you can still appreciate the beauty of the landscape through my photos. This region of Switzerland is very picturesque!
