Walking in the Swiss Alps

Two months into lockdown, and I'm starting to dream about travelling again.

On a warm, sunny afternoon like this, I'd love to be walking in the Lauterbrunnen Valley, deep in the Bernese Oberland. This part of the Swiss alps is just so photogenic. You hike up the valley with the bulk of the Eiger and Jungfrau on your left and the village of Murren, perched above sheer cliffs, on your right, the silence broken only by the background sound of waterfalls plunging down on either side.

My favourite view of the valley is from the pastures below the village of Wengen, a brisk walk up from the little town of Lauterbrunnen.

Here's Wengen, perched above the valley, with a dusting of snow...
And here's the view down into the valley...
But for now, travel remains a memory and a hope.
