We went to Zermatt for the weekend. It’s a 3-hour train ride from Basel, and we made sure to bring the guys’ walking sticks to get them excited about hiking.
I was in Zermatt about 11 years earlier. Jessica and I were on our honeymoon in Florence. We had been outside the city for a few days and were back, but we were disappointed in not finding any hiking trails in Tuscany. So spur-of-the-moment, we decided to go to Switzerland. A beautiful train ride later, we walked into Hotel Tannenhof in Zermatt.
As Jack and Adam and Jessica and I walked to our Zermatt hotel, Hotel Alpina, something looked familiar. Across from the Alpina was the Tannenhof. Our path took us between the two.
On the right was the past. On the left was the future. And Jessica and I, plus two little extensions, walked in between.
