A couple of weeks ago I was visited by my camino friends from Great Britain, Martin and Jane. They drove from their vacation home in Burgandy. I met them as they made the trip up to Gimmelwald on the cable car.
They stayed three nights. We had a great time hiking, eating and drinking (just like on the camino). We made the great hike to the Sprutz waterfall on the first day.
On the second day we took a hike with nice views of the mountains. As we walked we heard beautiful music in the distance. As we round a corner we could see a group of musicians playing alphorns.
It was a great hike with the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau showing through the clouds.
We even had a great picnic while looking down over the Luaterbrunnen Valley.
We had three great dinners during the visit. The best was an evening of raclette a traditional Swiss meal (followed closely by a delicious risotto made by Martin). The raclette consisted of a variety of meats, potatoes and bread. A local cheese (raclette) was placed on top and then put under a broiler to melt and brown. The result was delicious.
It was a great treat to have visitors. Martin is now planning a camino reunion at their holiday home in Burgandy. I can’t wait.
