I began the new year with breakfast in bed and an exercise session at the Hotel Gym. The plus side to waking up without a hangover. I had a shower, then put on warm clothes and picked up Isolina’s car that she’d parked here yesterday.
….I love driving and being on the road in sunshine and seeing all the mountains was pure joy to me. I love the alps. I felt the same harmony in Verbier when I was there for a hike in October. My big dream in life is to have a summerhouse on the French riviera and a chalet here in Gstaad. I really need to learn French, it would make everything easier. But I don’t have any language talents unfortunately.
We got the lift up to Wasserngrat, I love my jacket from Goldbergh. Sunglasses from Tom Ford, tights from Toteme and shoes from Inuikki.
Lunchtime, most people went up the lift without skii:s. It was scary going downhill, my fear of heights came back.
We’ve been hanging in the sunshine all day. Lucky thing I didn’t forget the sun cream.
When we came back down the mountain we went to Alpina, it’s my favourite hotel in Gstaad. Palace is more classic Grand Hotel-esque and Alpina is more modern. It was fully booked when I had a look but next time I want to stay here.
What a fantastic couple of days here in Switzerland. I’m flying home tomorrow again. The evening has been relaxing, but now I’m going to read and eat NK mint Johan and Isolina brought me. ❤️
