Hallo! I’m Alex.

Here in Switzerland, there are more than 65,000 kilometers of marked trails, called “wanderwegs.” The signs are bright yellow, and they are everywhere, leading through urban city centers to lakeside villages to mountain hikes on the top of the Alps.

My husband and I are new to Zurich, by way of San Francisco. We’re figuring it out - the language, the culture, the seasons, the country - day by day, while squeezing in as much hiking and traveling as possible.

These are the stories of creating our own wanderwegs.
