La Shaguita Gets All Swissy
The Swiss Alps are simply the best. I spent my summers near here growing up. Sure, I'd love to share them with a lover someday. But until then, there's no one else I'd rather share them with than YOU. At least electronically.
Here's a video from my first solo hike.
The lesbi parties in Switzerland tend to take a break over the summer since so many people go on vacation. That's right, people get good vacation time here and they tend to use it, especially the month of August. I took advantage of this to have some much-needed Me Time. There was no better way to heal my recent heartbreak than by escaping to these mountains. I even got to go to a Cheesemaker's House to see how Gruyere cheese is made. It was a pretty great excursion, despite my slight fear of cows.
After my Me Time, some lesbi friends came for a visit. I discovered how fun it is to take pictures in the reflection of another person's glasses. You should try this activity with a lover. This nose is not my lover's.
If you really want to impress a lover, take her on a hike in the Swiss Alps. This is a view near Faulhorn Mountain Hut. Don't stay there unless you want to sleep right next to a stranger.
Here's another lake: Bachalpsee. Looks fake, doesn't it? It's not. We even saw a cow swimming across it. That wasn't fake, either.
THE HILLS WERE JUST ... SO ... ALIVE ....
Here's an example of a Mountain Hut, Berghauss Männdlenen. You can plan a hike and sleep at these at low cost along the way. These huts usually only have the basics like minimal running water, so they're more adventurous than romantic.
The Swiss Alps are full of dreamy flowers, some of which have otherworldly hues.
Take your friends or lover(s) on the historic Dampffahrten train from Shynige Platte to ...
... Rotenegg. This might lead to a number of ill-humored Rotenegg Dampffahrten jokes, but it's okay to be immature sometimes.
ON ANOTHER NOTE, THE ORIGINAL GOATEE
Switzerland is an expensive country unless you know the tricks. There aren't a lot of young, budget travellers wandering around. My friends and I decided to make a t-shirt that says: (front) We Might Look Messy (back) But We're Just Nerds. I still don't have a picture of that shirt, so here's another picture of Bachalpsee instead.
Oh yeah and if you want some new andro accessories, Switzerland is a great place to find them. Check out these rad Edelweiss suspenders I bought. Okay, I think that's all I have to say for now.
