TASIS is done, the Via Alpina next

The summer has run its course. The program at TASIS is over. Two months. Just a whirlwind. And my neice was here for three weeks and it went just too fast. She had an amazing time and that is what I was hoping for. Now it is on to the next adventure. I head out for Adelboden, Switzerland tomorrow to hike for four days to Montreax on Lake Geneva. Once I reach the lake I will have completed the VIa Alpina from Lichtenstein to the western end of Switzerland. I started piece by piece back in 2011. Hopefully the weather holds out.
