Night Travel

Night trains are fun. This time, we travelled in the fancy 2-person cabin from Zürich to Ljubljana.

community garden patches are an important part of many european cities... zürich is no exception. People set up fully-functioning houses on their tiny plots of land sometimes and use them as a refuge from the city.

Winterhorn: Ski Season is Here

First tour of the season with the Zürcher Studenten Skitourenclub was to Winterhorn (2660m), a little peak near Gotthard pass on the border between Uri and Ticino. We braved the 6 am departure from Zürich HB, then we braved some nice winds, and skied from just below the summit in a solid whiteout. Good fun with some great people!
