I was pleasantly surprised - when out running with the stroller and our two and half year old son - to bump into a friend in our village here in the Bernese Alps of Switzerland.
After a quick catchup in my terrible (but improving) Swiss German, he mentioned they were heading into the mountains for two days and if I would like to join. It sounded like a fun adventure, perhaps just what I needed after a long cycle of work / eat / sleep / repeat.
Sleep is very important
So we headed up from the Iffigenalp parking area towards the Wildstrubelhütte for our overnight stop.
