Admittedly, I was a skeptic when friends invited us on a trip to Wengen (in the Swiss Alps) for the weekend to go snowshoeing. Ha, snowshoeing… lame-o!!!!!! I mean, I just never got the appeal of a) making walking hard and b) strapping tennis rackets to my feet (actually, I never got the appeal on winter sports in general… yay, let’s all bundle up uncomfortably to go stand outside in subfreezing weather?!). But I am up for some new adventures now that I’m settled into everyday life here and thought what the hell.
Not that I admit this often, but I was wrong. Really wrong. Snowshoeing was awesome! So much so that I have officially declared it as my new winter sport, meaning that I intend to go at least twice a winter! I basically got to moonwalk out into these pristine and beautiful parts of nature. It literally feels like your center of gravity is lifted slightly and you can float a bit in the world.

|Visibility was so bad it felt like we were walking off
the face of the Earth!

Next up we’re planning on going for a romantic torch-lit snowshoeing walk to a hidden fondue restaurant in the Alps in two weeks. Romantic + dorky = the best Valentine’s Day gift ever!! 🙂
