I was so glad to see and read your Engadine report! We are traveling to the Upper Engadine (from our home in Vermont / U.S.) in September 2023 for our very first trip to that area. We know precious little about that part of Switzerland, but are anxious to learn lots more, and to explore it. Our previous Switzerland trips have been in the Bernese Oberland and the Valais. We’re anxious to find other, similarly-beautiful parts of this gorgeous country. And maybe, if possible, escape some of the crowds.
We, too, will be staying in Sils at Hotel Maria. We’re in our late 60’s / early 70’s, love to hike and, on other days, to walk and quietly picnic in lovely spots with mountain views. So, as you can imagine, we’re hanging on your every word! If you have other tips, hints, suggestions, advice, things to avoid or to definitely try, please feel free! We’re all ears.
Can you tell us where your two photos were taken? I’m not sure we’ll get to Pontresina (… it’ll be a question of time and weather, I suspect; we’ll be in Sils for just a week).
Thank you tons for starting out your post with your age and your main interests / background… That is incredibly helpful. (I have to admit, I wish all posts started that way, so all of us could put people’s comments in appropriate perspective.) Since my husband and I are your age, and share your love of walking and moderate hiking, we’re curious how you’d compare the Sils / Engadine area to the other parts of Switzerland where you’ve hiked and/or traveled. And do you have other Swiss areas you’d really encourage us to explore on another trip? We’re so happily addicted to Switzerland!
Your trip report has gotten us even more excited. It is very well written, clear, and helpful. Thank you! If and when it’s fun to respond, we’ll eat up anything you choose to share. But please don’t consider our questions any obligation. We just can’t resist opening the door. : D
Again, many thanks,
