XMAS HOLIDAYS PART II

During our Xmas holidays, we visited my boyfriend's sister (Melanie) who lives high up in the mountains, an hour and a half drive away from Chur, in the Albula valley (Albulatal).

The place is called
Filisur and is close to Bergün where a five-kilometer sledge run ends (starting from Preda, higher up in the valley)...

Filisur is a very nice place located in the heart of Graubünden and is the holiday corner of Switzerland. This narrow valley is very unique and beautiful, so you can imagine that ou
r stay was very enjoyable. The place was totally covered with thick snow, so the view we had was magickal and truely that of a postcard ("cliché"); idyllic!...
