A Classy, Majestic Resort in the Swiss Alps — Grand Resort Bad Ragaz

Positioned in a valley surrounded by magnificent Swiss Alps, lies the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz. I have heard so many excellent things about Bad Ragaz but, until now, I have not had a chance to visit. I was blown away by the experience and wish I’d visited sooner. It’s a perfect place for a vacation for relaxation and wellness. In fact, I think the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz is like Disneyland for adults, as everything you could want is in one resort. It is not a resort just for mature adults, it caters to family and young couples. The diversity of choices for restaurants and activities offers something for everyone.

Bad Ragaz is famous for their healing waters, their 36.5 celsius thermal waters, the perfect bath temperature. They have an abundance of indoor and outdoor pools, spas and saunas. In total, there are over 7300 square meters of natural thermal pools in the resort. What an incredible feature to offer your hotel guests.

Switzerland Public Schools

For many years I have put off posting about schooling in Switzerland as there is so much to cover regarding the Swiss Public School system. When we first arrived in Switzerland our only option was to put our kids in the public schools as we were not on an expat package and simply could not afford private schooling. So, with that said, we jumped all in— totally clueless to how the system worked.

Stay In the Heart of Zürich – Hotel Felix

We were fortunate to spend a weekend at the wonderful, recently remodeled, centrally located Hotel Felix in Zürich. Just a short walk from the Zürich HB station (250 meters) you’ll arrive at Hotel Felix situated in the old town surrounded by an abundance of cafes and bars. The entrance to the Hotel is simplistic, yet chic, with color schemes that blend well offering an ambience of calmness.

Hiking Monte Lema to Monte Tamaro – in Ticino Switzerland (Tessin)

We have been in Ticino for almost seven years now and this hike has been on our radar since year one. I think it took us so long to do this hike, as we were never quite sure of the logistics of how to do it. Lema to Tamaro is a one-way hike, well obviously, you can do it RT, but hiking for 10+ hours in a single day is a little much. Not to mention the funiculars close, so you would have to hike down the mountain.

Hiking to Sassariente in Ticino (Tessin)

Hiking in Switzerland never ceases to amaze me. I am sure we have clocked hundreds of miles in many pairs of shoes hiking in the Swiss Alps, but we experienced a first for us on our last hike, an Alpine Trail. The final stretch up to Sassariente is classified as an Alpine Trail, which can be very dangerous. Luckily the Alpine Trail is only the final stretch of the hike and then you are awarded with breathtaking views over Lago Maggiore.
