Tobi’s family is close-knit. Living within a thirty-radius from his parents, he and his two brothers are often invited for dinner at home. His parents, in their younger years, traveled exhaustively. They traveled overland from Singapore to Turkey.
Despite the occasional paranoia Tobi felt in India over my safety [READ: Five places I could recommend to my fellow women travelers], the India his parents had been to was way more misogynyst. His dad tied a rope from the door knob and tied the other end on something that would cause a a lot of ruckus.
Nowadays, they sometimes go for a weekend hike with their sons. This is one of the many weekends hike Tobias, Martin, and their Mom enjoyed thoroughly.
Some of my impressions of a cloudy but beautiful sunday hike with the family. The way leads us through the Rätikon, which belongs to the wow Alps, in Vorarlberg/Autsria. As much as I like to travel to other countries, I am always fascinated how beautiful my country is. A weekend hike is a great way to compensate from a busy week of work and business. Sun is not necessary. But let my pictures do the talking.
Eyes open if you don’t want to get lost.
Hilly and easy start, leaving modern civilization behind.
Sulzfluh ahead of us.
Wanted! Witch for Witch’s Cottage. 😉
Watch out for rolling little rocks.
View of Öfatobel where we came from.
We decided that bathing season is over.
This is called Schweizer Tor. 2 Mountains form a huge gate. Step through it and you are in Switzerland
Quite impressed by this huge rock.
After lunch on windy and cold 2400m ASL, we were heading down to the end of our trip.
Some years ago a couple of Custom Officers made themselves comfortable in this little house. Not sure how busy they were.
Close to the end. Lünersee is in sight from where we took a cable car downwards.
