The morning breakfast is a typically glorious Alpine breakfast with lots of good cheese, thinly sliced späck, this with some hot steaming bread. Fresh fruit sliced into my bowl of yogurt with various nuts and a bit of muesli. A large cup of tea puts down on the table and a glass of orange juice is slipping down while I'm waiting for the tea to cool slightly. After breakfast I send my luggage to next hotel and grab my backpack. (Well, okay then, a toilet visit is mandatory at this time to leave more room for breakfast.) I also brush my teeth and cover my face with a thick layer of sun protection, factor +50.
8:30 am, we meet our group of enthusiastic Hikers and head off on today's Hike. Around 1.00 pm it’s time for a lovely picnic usually perched on a saddle or a pass between two valleys in the open air. If I´m luckey enough, there might be a mountain lake were I could have a swim and do 1-2 kilometer while the group are having lunch. Buy this time we have made 1000-1200 vertical meters up and up to a few kilometers in distends. At around 5:00 pm we step into the next town or village after 8 hours of hiking and there is a new hotel with our luggage waiting. Dinner is served 7:30 pm so during the dead time in between I try to take a run around 6-10 kilometers. Dinner is usually served with 3-7 dishes and takes about two hours, around 9:30 pm we round off dinner. At this point most people are done for today, however, we (me and Daniel) walks up to our room, collect the climbing gear we need, put our headlamps on and head out to climb until around midnight. To sleep after a day like this is not achieved to be a major problem, you happily wake up the day after and do the same thing again. All days do not always look like this but the last 10 days in all cases =)
