Thought for the day…”Happiness is good health and a bad memory.”

You just have to feel sorry for the NASA astronaut who discovered recently whilst on a space walk that he had forgotten to put a memory card in his GoPro camera. We have all done that, or have forgotten to recharge the camera batteries, but to be out in space on space walk and discover that you have no memory card in the camera must feel very bad, very bad. And to make it even worse, the omission was even broadcast, the link for the video from NASA is here –

Thought for the day…” You are only young once, but you can be immature forever”.

Standards are very high in Switzerland, and things work as they should. Had a trip to Kandersteg recently and was very lucky to stay in The Hayloft, which is a traditional Swiss chalet now operating as a B&B (www.thehayloft.ch). The building is almost 500 years old, and has fantastic views of the waterfalls and mountains nearby. Not only that, but the hosts that run the chalet were excellent, so the hospitality was great too. Just what you want when you are in Switzerland !! Kandersteg (altitude 1200m) is a great base for hiking, and with the network of cable cars and gondolas, it is very easy to reach the higher valleys. About 7.3 million people live in Switzerland, with around 70% of the country being mountainous. The famous Swiss army knives were originally all red so that they could be found easily in the snow. The Swiss are also famous for having the highest chocolate consumption per capita in the world.
