My wife's first real hiking with me, in 1995 - when she was not my wife yet but my girlfriend. This was her ever been highest hiking performance: 1250 m elevation gain (plus return) within the same day. We started from the tiny hamlet Sanico (330 m a.s.l.) and returned to the same place. At return we purchased some infected (salmonella?) ice-cream in a grocery of the village. We were extremely ill in the enxt days.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
