the restoration and renovation of our new home took over an year. We waited and waited and I have to admit I am extremely happy the waiting time is over.
My anticipation of a new home was high and I am not disappointed.
But the big surprise was to discover my new way to work and back. I kind of never gave it a thought, it was always about the house. Until I walked home for the first time. See the pictures and I am sure you understand what I mean
and the walk home after the first snow on the mountain tops
I just love it!
I drive to work every morning and Daniel walks down to Scuol with Anton and Oskar. After day’s work we swap, he drives home and I walk with the dogs. I think this is the happiest part of all moving and having a new home, the walk home in this beautiful scenery.
I wish you a nice week
most of the time our weekends have three components
although it is hot in these altitudes too, we try to do some hiking. Like once again Muottas Muragl and this Sunday we hiked through Bergell, from Casaccia to Soglio

Eat good food in good company, all I need! (the food comes naturally with good wine)
yes, the moving day is getting closer … I have been packing for ages and there are heaps left to do but soon, very soon we have a new home.

This week it snowed almost two days non-stop. I love snow in winter but in spring …
It can snow any month of the year in the mountains. We have hiked in snowstorm in July and snow in June happens every now and then but I have to admit it is frustrating. Just when the first field flowers started to decorate all the fields, the snow came.
I always have one pair of winter boots, winter jacket, mittens and a hat around, no matter which month it is and lucky me since it is also really cold again.
But now we are packing some summer clothes and head to Italy!
It was absolutely a perfect winter day for our staff day out. We had chosen Motta Naluns as a place to be, since you can do all sorts of winter sports there. We were about thirty of us and the most went skiing, some walking and some sledging.
We all met for lunch again and enjoyed the food, the weather, the scenery and being together
almost all of us
Our ski-ass from South Tyrol, Sabine
Helen, an assistant nurse, world champion in Slalom and Downhill from the seventies and still a devil on the slopes!
Sandra, Juliana, Helen, Daniele, Jana, Karl-Heinz, Eva, Arno and Sabine
In the end of the day Charlie, our cook, had organized a small Apéro for us at the Station of Motta Naluns
and then there was the Aprés-Ski in Mar Motta…
It was such a fun day, next year definitely again!
We have had many picture perfect winter days this winter. In our valley, Engadin, you can do all winter sports you ever desire to do. We have been enjoying the possibilities every weekend and as always the pictures’ll tell you more
all the winter hiking trails are marked with pink signs
The brush is of course to clean the bench in case there is any snow on it
or perhaps you want to sit down in one of the many mountain restaurants. My favorite is Prui, at walking distance from home
Back in our home village there is a small ski slope for kids
On the right the house where we liveyes!
