Visitors

Posted from Holzhäusern, Canton of Zug, Switzerland.

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.
