Mountain Summit Switzerland

Me on top of a mountain in Switzerland (I’m the one on the left)

Crazy climb:

When you’re 20 years old and living a couple hours walk from summiting a mountain like this, safety isn’t always your number one concern.

Along with Swedish friend Karl, and American friend Dave, we decided to explore the mountains that surrounded the small Alpine village of Arosa, and found ourselves on top of the world!

Now, I hadn’t taken the mountaineering course in India, and now that I have, I don’t think you’d find me on top of a cliff like this without proper equipment.  What you don’t see are my running shoes or the several hundred meter drop in front of me!

My friend Dave snapped this one, in case you were wondering.  That’s right, I didn’t use the timer and run…lol
