Living the good life.


Grenzlos, one of our house gnomes, likes to travel, and we never really know where he’s going to pop up next. We thought he was in Switzerland, until now.

The Walker family recently returned from a ski trip in Austria and shot this photo while they were there. It appears that Grenzlos is happily spending his time in a region known as the Silvretta, and I can’t say that I blame him. The Silvretta is a very special place.

Peter Walker said this about his recent trip. “We skied from Ischgl, Austria to Davos, Switzerland over the course of ten days. It was sunny throughout with high temperatures in the 60’s each day. The slogan for Ischgl, Relax If You Can, barely hints at the number of possibilities in this adventurer’s paradise. The huts are incredible. They have private rooms and showers. One has an indoor climbing wall and also its own private access lift. It also has WiFi and a sauna. Really, it’s pretty deluxe.”

Deluxe indeed.

Please forward a photo if you happen to see Grenzlos during your travels abroad. And please let him know that we could use his help back in the office. He has a knack for slipping away undetected.
