Rocked the #BarongTagalog for last night’s CitySightseeing Dubai launch at the Meydan Hotel. The dress code said business attire or national dress. Ergo, the Barong. :)

The long and winding road. Enroute from #Arosa to #StLuc, @valdanniviers, @valaiswallis. I have to admit that to an extent, the twists and turns were a bit dizzying but the view can’t be beat. Luckily @martin_hannart  was a very capable driver. #ArosatoStLuc #Valais #ValdAnniviers #Switzerland #SwissAlps #love #travel #ilovetravel #BestVacations #passionpassport #roadtrip (at Switzerland)

Had lunch at #LeRouge in #Verbier. Had an amazing view of the mountain. Even saw a few paragliders. The umbrellas were a nice touch of color at the restaurant. #Valais #Switzerland #love #travel #ilovetravel #SwissAlps (at Le Rouge Restaurant & Club)

On our way to #HôtelWeisshorn at #StLuc, #ValdAnniviers. Located at 2337m, the hotel was built originally to welcome the first English mountaineers. It was such an experience hiking all the way to the hotel - it was warm and dry at first then it became cold and started to rain! During the 1 hour and a half hike, we saw amazing mountain sceneries and fantastic views of the Val d’Anniviers. I have to admit I did have a bit of a panic attack when we reached this narrow part of the trail, with the cliff just centimeters away. I had to crouch down for a few seconds to regain my composure and then willed myself to move forward taking one small step at a time. You won’t believe the relief (and sense of pride) I felt when I reached the broader part of the trail close to the hotel and was treated to this amazing view of the valley. This #hiking trip is definitely #oneforthebooks! #Valais #SwissAlps #Switzerland #love #travel #ilovetravel  (at Saint-Luc, Valais)
