Funemployment Ch. 1 - Laax, Switzerland / by Frederik van den Berg

The first days in paradise... 

The first days in paradise... 

Snow is a beautiful thing. It alters landscapes, changes natural light, and even softens sounds. It falls in silence but crunches under your feet. It falls in little flakes of crystallized droplets, and forms a unified blanket of powdery goodness. 

The following pictures are from our first month up in Laax. You will get to know our surroundings, and see a bit of our life on the mountain. 

Cloudy days are for backyard pillow fights.
