“Sta bain” – Goodbye

We’ve enjoyed two weeks of skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, sledging, ice skating and just being in this beautiful, picturesque part of Switzerland. For now it is time to say “Sta bain” – goodbye, but we’ll be back…

For those of you that are interested:
“Sta bain” is “rätoromanisch” and means goodbye. Rätoromanisch is one of the four official languages spoken in Switzerland (the other three are German, French and Italian ). It is only spoken in this part of Switzerland, the canton “Graubünden”.

  4. Our Swiss friends were both born in the Swiss German part but speak French at home. It was interesting seeing 3 languages (Swiss German, French and Italian) on the packaging in Grindelwald but I didn’t see any Romanche written. Do you speak Romanche?
