Exploring the Matterhorn and Zermatt Switzerland

♪ Time flies by and I ♪ – We are heading to the cable cars to go to a place called
(speaking in foreign language) – There is our hotel room. There is the Matterhorn. ♪ See beyond the disguise ♪ ♪ Look into the sun’s eyes ♪ ♪ Love happens ♪ – I forgot Heather doesn’t like heights. (laughs)
– Oh shit! Okay. Oh my god. ♪ And all the world is
bright again and I ♪ ♪ The sky is light again ♪ – Now we’re heading to what’s
called Glacier Paradise. – Yes, it’s the very top peak. – And the Matterhorn’s right here. You can’t really see it
’cause it’s got cloud cover. But the clouds and the
weather are moving so fast. – Here in about 30 seconds
you will see the Matterhorn. – We’re also distracting ourselves from the terror of this gondola. – The descent that we are on right now. – So we’re like, what
90, 80% of the way up? There’s Matterhorn, we’re here, and then we’re going up to here to this thing called the Glacier Paradise. ♪ We got love that we’ll
never need to hide ♪ ♪ Love will always rise above ♪ ♪ Whatever comes, we will be just fine ♪ – At the top, this really feels like the ice base on Ha on Empire Strikes Back. So just going through the
mountain like a tunnel. There’s no bathrooms. I don’t know. (laughs) It’s really hard to breathe. So, here’s the thing. We went up really, really high. And I didn’t consider altitude. I am gonna die. Like I can’t breathe. I can’t move. And if you can see we’re
just in the clouds. There’s just, it’s just the clouds. It’s so hard to breathe. You don’t feel sick. You just, you just can’t breathe. And then your vision blacks out and you’re just gonna fall over. How are you? You tell
me how you’re feeling. – I’m doing great. I mean I feel very, I feel light. And a little dizzy and light headed. And the muscles feel real tight. But, I can stay here a while. ♪ Home is where we all heading ♪ ♪ Snow falls on this mount ♪ ♪ Hill tops on this sunrise ♪ ♪ Hold, hold on to the smile ♪ – Look, there’s our lock. I’m gonna write the date and then we’re gonna leave it on here. – The way that the love locks work is you put your lock here and
then they leave them there and then you put they key in the thing and they freeze the key. – They freeze it in ice. – Into the ice… forever. (upbeat music) – I’m so dizzy. It’s like, it’s not shortness of breath, it’s like when I lean over I lean to far, I don’t have balance, yeah. How was the top? Like up there? Oh, it was gorgeous, beautiful, beautiful. Totally worth it. – I don’t see switzerland
and these mountain things on a lot of peoples
travel bucket lists but it was really just on mine
to go see the Matterhorn, I didn’t even know about
all this other stuff, so despite the altitude challenges it’s really unbelievable. I’ve never seen or been anywhere like it. Highly recommend it. (upbeat music) – So we are in the
glacial palace right now, and I think over there there’s a glacier structure museum and stuff. I’m about to run out
of battery and I can’t change camera battery because
my hands are totally frozen. (upbeat music) – This video is not about anything. – It’s a vlog. – It’s not a tutorial, it’s not a review, it’s not about 3D printing. I think my point of this whole video is how thankful I am to share it with you. – Aww, I love you. We were hanging out inside a glacier. – Woke up, ate breakfast, went up a mountain in a gondola, found ourselves at a glacier, looked at an ice sculpture of a beaver. – Inside the glacier. – In the glacier. Hailstorm, it’s hailing right now. You can hear it. You know, just a typical Tuesday. (laughs) It’s not. (upbeat music)

  6. Awesome vlog! The speed ramp in the beginning caught my attention. At least that's what it looked like. Your cinematography was awesome and the story was touching. Your breathing at the top sounded an awful lot like me in my vlogs. I have an excuse I have asthma, lol.

  7. Pretty. I hate the music in the beginning so I was going to turn it off right away but you got altitude sickness so that made me keep watching. Then the music kept sucking so I left. I came back to let you know. You crazy nerd.

  8. Ok I have to be sincere for a minute and let you know Iโ€™m psyched youโ€™re with a girl you really like. She seems pretty alright. Much love to bofe you

  9. I love this video! super down to earth. I am going to Zermatt in April (possibly solo) and I'm super excited to explore what Zermatt has to offer, it has been on top of my bucket list for places to visit. Thanks for sharing!

  10. hi i like your video! just wondering, when you were riding some sort of sled (looks like a donut) at which stop exactly was that? and can we just freely ride it or there's someone who operate that?
