Saying Goodbye to New Friends

A travel blog entry by theriggs on Jun 28, 2015

It was with much sadness that we had to leave Faschina today. Packing, breakfast, and paying bills was just depressing. A sunny morning, we would have rather been staying and going for another lovely walk. But they say all good things must come to an end, so sad as it was we packed the bags into the minivans, and headed off towards Feldkirch. There was one more place to visit however, a local monastery. The ...

Last Hike

Patrick promised something special for our last day, and as usual, he didn't disappoint. With rain predicted for the early afternoon, Patrick was keen to get on the mountain early. Today we were to walk the ridge above Faschina, challenging because it such a narrow path with steep drops over the sides.

With only half an hour they quickly did the rounds before we all got back in the vans for the run back to Faschina via Raggal on the shady side of the valley. It had once again been a ...

Blue Sky Day

A travel blog entry by theriggs on Jun 24, 2015

... It was delicious. After lunch we had a traditional tea making lesson with Patick's mother Elizabeth. Elizabeth has developed a "Tea Project" in the Grosse Walsertal, to ensure that traditional methods are preserved. We were all given specific flowers and plants to collect, then we combined out harvest to produce the desired mix for tea. The tradition is that the tea must be made with exactly seven different ingredients. We all ended up with a bag ...
