It’s so big! (that’s what she said)

Last weekend, we travelled three hours via the “Glacier Express” train from Zurich to Zermatt, home of the famous Matterhorn. I know everyone alive has seen pictures of it but to see it in person is remarkable. We hiked, the long route to the base of the mountain. It was a beautiful, quiet, and a kick-your-ass hard hike up and up and up.  We rewarded ourselves with a traditional cheese fondue for dinner. Yum!

We stayed in a hotel that was quintessentially Swiss in every way possible- from furniture and decorations to the muesli we had for breakfast. It was so lovely and to cap it all off, we had a view of the Matterhorn from our balcony. We sat, drank some nice wine and watched the sun go down. Josh took photos every 10 minutes or so. Here are a few to give you a sense of how the mountain changes with the waning light.

It was another wonderful weekend to add to our “Swisstory”. Next weekend, Prague.
