... parked the car and began a three hour hike through this lovely valley to Vicosoprano. If it wasn't for the wasp that stung Katherina and then Max it would have been a perfect day.

We didn't make it all the way to Samnaun. We took four
chairlifts in all – two to the swiss border at Viderjoch/Flimspitz, then down
