Zermatt in an instant

Zermatt in an instant
Hello there Lovelies :nekopaw:
How are you doing? I’ve completely lost track of uni but soon it will start again and I’m afraid that I forgot all the Kanji I learned. :jupp: Hope I can study a little in the coming two weeks. I’ve never been on holiday for such a long time and Im not sure whether I invested my free time cleverly… well I still have some time left to do some useful things.
Right now I’m still in Zermatt and enjoying some sunny weather and lots of snow and snowboarding. I’ve been snowboarding for ten years now but I’m thinking about going back to skiing. Or rather do both?! Anyway, winter sports are a lot of fun and in Switzerland there are many opportunities and places to go. But Zermatt has always been my favourite winter resort and I wouldn’t want to miss the impressive view of the Matterhorn. You know, that mountain that has even its own chocolate brand?

Do you know Toblerone? It’s quite delicious!

I’ve been coming here since my birth and it always feels so cosy and good when I arrive in this little village. (well actually it’s getting bigger and bigger because they’ve been constantly building more cottages and hotels..) One special feature of Zermatt is, that there are no cars and therefore the air is pretty pure. It’s not that there arent’s any means of transportation but they’re all fueled with electricity!! Sounds pretty funny, doesn’t it? And of course there are oldfashioned carriages. Soooo romantic! But I have only been on one a long time ago when I was a kid.
Nough’ said. Here are the pics~

1. Me, hanging in a tree 2. Carriage for the fancy international guests of the Grand Hotel Zermatterhof
3. Best confectioner in Zermatt: Fuchs :sprout: 4. View from a slope

1. The mighty Matterhorn 2. Down there lies Zermatt 3. So devilishly coooooold! 4. Sight from the viewing point of the Gornegrat. Noticed how different the mountain looks from here?!

Sorry for the blurry insta pics but I wouldn’t want to risk my old and trusty Nikon while falling on my butt or worse. I hope I can make some decent shots on the last day or something.

1. Silvankun soaking in the sun 2. First day.. it was cold 3. Finally a little sun! 4. Swiss tools and a handyman

1. Rothorn 2. Captain Nekochan 3. Our boards 4. Ride~

1. Silvankun’s crazy hairstyle 2. Kiss! 3. Lovely view 4. One of the best hot chocolates evvver!

That’s it for now! I’ve still got some more pictures but I’ll upload them in a later entry… I hope you don’t mind! We still have four days left and afterwards I’ll go visiting my grandmother in Milan. I’m honestly so excited since I haven’t been there and haven’t seen her in a long time. But I love that city and I can’t wait to show you some impressions.

Take care cuties and stay tuned :on:

  1. :hello: Neko!

    I’m not a girl that goes
    to winter resorts very often.
    I can’t ski or do any wintersports..
    But! I would love to learn
    how to snowboard c;
    And I would love to face to cold
    at this place, the view looks
    beautiful! I wish you can take me
    there haha ;P


    • awww Mei! I would take you there immediately!!! if you ever come to Switzerland, let me know~ seriously!

  2. Those pictures are awesome and cute as well :ii:
    I’ve never been skiing before but it looks like a lot of fun, maybe I’ll try next winter hehe!

  3. Oh you are so pretty – have I ever said that before? Well there I said it! Also now you have my craving Toblerone!

  4. I didn’t know Toblerone was from Zermatt! I adore the dark chocolate version *ç*
    And it’s so cool that Zermatt only have electric cars, more cities should do this!!!
    I’m looking forward to go skiing at the beginning of march, also because it’s a great excuse to have hot chocolate and super fat panini *_* I never tried snowboarding, it sort of scares me to have both feet bond to the same thing.

    • Toblerone is not from Zermatt, it’s from Berne! (hence the bear in the Matterhorn) never tried the dark version but I’m sure I would love it :)

  5. Wow was eine wunderschöne Aussicht <3
    Jetzt haste mich ein bisschen neidisch gemacht :D Snowboarden steht bei mir seit Jahren auf der To Do Liste, aber ich finde nie Jemanden der mit macht oder die zeit dazu :/

  6. Those are some awesome pictures of snow and mountains! It surely looks like you had a lot of fun! =)

    I can’t ski or snowboard but I’d love to try one day. It seems like a really fun winter sport. Although I am not sure if I’ll still be alive by the end of the day. I’ll probably crash and fall so many times with a broken leg or arm, lol!

  7. You have such a cool lay-out!
    I have been there too, but on a summer holiday, it looks quite different then! :) And maaaan now I want some toblerone soo badly!

  8. Ohh I never realized Toblerone was from Switzerland! :) Beautiful mountain shots. Looks like you had so much fun~ :jumpingrabbit: :bling:

  15. Coming from a Sunny Country, I’ve come to hate Winter.. I couldn’t stand the cold.. My mom just asked me to go skiing with them, and I was like- ‘not coming.’

    But these pictures are so lovely.. they talk a lot.. and now I might go skiing with the family.. and yes try to learn to ski..

    Zermatt is now listed on my ‘to-visit-list’.. I wonder how the place is all year-round.. or is prettier on winter days?

  16. There are no cars in Zermatt? I had no idea! It’s been on my must-visit list for ages, anyway, but this news has bumped it up a few spots – as have your pictures; they’re gorgeous!
