On 9/11 we left Saas-Fee by bus then by train through the Alps to Engelberg, another Swiss resort town.

….If the kids see the park…all hope of ...
... we were eating breakfast. Our paragliding trip was booked for 9, so we walked to the meeting spot which wasn't far at all. The entire way, Jessica, Luanne and I couldn't contain our excitement and how happy we were. When we got there, we were given these really nice Swiss hiking boots which were very comfortable! Then we were taken in an old 70s van up the mountain to Beatenberg, which is 4500 ft. above sea level. The view up there was incredible! My tandem partner ...
