Childhood holidays

With hindsight, one of the things which drew me to the home where we now live is how many little details of it are similar to where I spent childhood holidays.

Oberberghorn

I’ve been looking at the tooth-like promontory in the distance quite regularly, ever since we moved to Faulensee. It’s a very distinct peak on the eastern side of the Schynige Platte and one which begs to be explored.
