The trip to S-charl is beautiful  – in summer and in winter!

When I left Sulden am Ortler last Thursday, August 15th by bus, the driver was somehow grumpy, apparently not very happy to have to work on the festive day “Assumption of Mary”: it seemed as if he didn’t understand German, so buying a ticket to Scuol in Switzerland proved to be too large a task for me as well for him. So I bought a ticket to Mal. At the change of bus in Spondinig into the direction of Mals the ticket turned out to be wrong, but also this driver only spoke Italian – my co-passengers were interpreting for me… But the sun was shining, so why having any problems! The trip by Postal car from Mals to Zernez went well – I have cast a look to the steep slope from Taufers i.M. to the Rifairalm that I had climbed a week ago…! Continue reading

No longer through the Clemgia Gorge…

Yesterday I have hiked Stage 67 of the Red Trail of the Via Alpina for the second time, that is to say the first part: from Scuol to Plan da Funtanas, about halfway to S-charl, the destination of this stage. It was almost just on the day two years ago that I hiked this stage for the first time: on June 12th 2017 I have started on the Via Alpina! I still remember very well how amazing this hike had been – and hoe promising the Via Alpina was at that moment. And I know by now hoe amazing and promising the Via Alpina is – and without a doubt will continue to be! Continue reading

The Kirchner Museum in Davos and the historic train to Filisur

The day before yesterday the weather was fine contrary to the forecasts, which made the trip to Davos pleasant. My main item of the day was a visit to the Kirchner Museum. Continue reading

Scuol, Livigno and Sent

Monday September 24th I left Küblis and arrived close to half past eleven in Scuol in Hotel Altana, which has recently changed its name into Typically Swiss Hotel Altana. There the atmosphere was as cosy and charming as always, with the marvellous flowers and the good food. Continue reading

Festivities, but also a thunderstorm with consequenses

In the morning of August 1st I said goodbye to the nice hoteliers of Hotel Margun. I had a pleasant stay in a beautiful, interesting area. I went on my way to the Mals bus station to get on the bus to Nauders (in Austria) and Martina (in Switzerland). I would like to celebrate the First of August in Scuol again, like in recent years. And also to have a bit of a holiday after the last demanding days… Continue reading

From one valley into another valley over the Ofen Pass

Today I had still some time to spend before I would leave by train and Postal car to Mals in South Tyrol and I made a tour through Scuol – and not only into the direction of the Schulhaus, the school building! The weather was hot again and from the west menacing clouds rolled in. Rain is urgently needed here… Continue reading

Il cuors intensiv da rumantsch…

About my school week and school performances I shall be brief. The level of the 4th grade was significantly higher than that of the 3rd grade and I was hindered by a “speech block” (only in Vallader) and – to be honest – also by a lack of preparation. Continue reading

Rhaetoromanic in practise

Yesterday afternoon I arrived in Scuol after a overnight stay in Frankfurt am Main. In my luggage also were my schoolbooks for the course rumantsch which starts tomorrow, Monday July 23rd. But first still a day of leisure: and time for a walk that will help me to adapt to the weight of the 1½ kilometre extra air on my shoulders. So I went by Postal car to Ramosch and from there by minibus to Vnà. Continue reading

Sculptures and relaxation

After my arrival last Monday I have indeed been able to enjoy the quietness and the hospitality at Hotel Altana. I still was rather active ‘though. On Wednesday, July 4th, I made again one of the walks which are my favourites when I do not want to make so much effort: from Scuol to Sur En, about a one-and-a-half hour on foot alongside the river Inn.

July 2nd 2018

A little rest after all the activities!

This morning I took off from Hotel Weisshorn already at half past seven, after a powerful breakfast of (again) Birchermüesli (this version was also very nice, because it was richly filled with blueberries and red currants) and home made prune jam on good white bread. The world looked still cool and fresh with the morning dew. Continue reading
