Got Air?

The Swiss do!
Since spring has sprung, we've seen many Swiss enjoying the air above...
Waaaay up high:
Hot air balloon...on it's way to the moon?



















A little closer to the ground:
Paragliding over our neighborhood.



















And right above the water:
Kite surfing...
...on Lake Zug.

Unfortunately, things don't always go to plan:
We didn't witness this, thank goodness.























We don't exactly 'get air', but we do like to breathe the air way up there (in the mountains) either by hiking or by using the amazing Swiss transportation system, SBB:

Here is my airy little poem:
soaring Swiss
an Alpine altitude
attitude

  1. My son & family were there a year or so ago, and thought the transportation "up" was marvelous. Since we're from Denver & love skiing, but not the traffic getting "up", we wish it could be here too. Love that "altitude/attitude", Bridget. Happy Spring!
