This weekend we made it our mission to avoid the weekly pilgrimage to Ikea. Instead, we went on two short road trips into the surrounding countryside. First was a quick trip to Aegeri, for a scenic drive and a traditional Swiss dinner at Restaurant Raten. Then Sunday we drove to Saentis/Ebenalp, a beautiful area just 1.5 hours from Zürich. After taking the cable car up and hiking along the ridge to Schaefler, we had lunch at a traditional mountain hut. Parts of the area were a bit overrun by other hikers but the views were spectacular, especially along the ridge. I also learned the secret to affordable grocery shopping in Zürich but I’ll save that for another post.
