Wengen – Leiterhorn Scenic Loop Hike

Wengen – Leiterhorn Scenic Loop Hike

Leiterhorn trail is a popular choice in winter for a scenic snowshoe tour from Wengen, however, it’s just as good and stunning in the summer. It’s a relatively short hike, but will make you break a sweat on some steep ascents. It’s become one of my favourites around Jungfrau Region as it offers some of the best views of Lauterbrunnen valley and is easy and budget-friendly to access, but most importantly – it offers a great escape as the trail is never busy.

How I Faced My Fear And Jumped Out Of An Aeroplane

A skydiving tandem has been an old and dear dream of mine, and years ago I was even considering getting a license of my own one day.

So I went out today and made it happen. But it wasn’t an easy journey… Continue reading “How I Faced My Fear And Jumped Out Of An Aeroplane”

From Marketing Life To Ski Rentals, T-Shirt Folding and Video Editing

I might not have the best track record with staying at jobs for longer than a year or two, but for about 10 years they all have been, more or less, related to marketing and communications. Moving to Switzerland, however, put an end to my marketing career, and allowed me to experience working at a ski rental shop, outdoor clothing store and, now, a skydiving company. Read on if you want to hear how I’ve been doing in the Swiss seasonal job market for the past year. Continue reading “From Marketing Life To Ski Rentals, T-Shirt Folding and Video Editing”

Day Trip to Zermatt

Day Trip to Zermatt

To ever see Matterhorn with my own eyes seemed quite unreal. But, to be fair, living in the Swiss Alps – even more so. That would have been something unthinkable years ago. But hey, I’m here now. Therefore, living less than a 3-hour drive away from Zermatt was a reason good enough to finally go visit Zermatt and see the beast that Matterhorn is. And so we did!
