The best treat for a birthday? A helicopter ride with my partner in crime, Geri. We flew to Monte Rosa (at the border with Italy) and Jungfrau – on top of Europe and nothing less! Blue sky, white snow, green country, cobalt glaciers: we saw it all in one day, rapidly changing in front of our eyes. We were dressed totally wrong because we didn’t know where we would go, so we ended up with summer sandals in the snow. Landing in the middle of tourists queueing up to watch the Swiss panoramic view was quite entertaining indeed; let’s say that we were slightly out of contest. A wonderful birthday present – thank you Marc for flying us and being our host and guide!
