    Crossing the Bernina Pass

    July 24, 2019 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    The Bernina Express crosses the Italian border and the Swiss Alps to Chur. It has Unesco World Heritage status, it negotiates 55 tunnels, 196 bridges, has an incline of 70 metres per kilometre and reaches a height of 2253 metres - needless to say it was a breathtaking journey and we even saw snow on the peaks above several glaciers.Read more

    Chur (CH)

    July 23, 2017 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    The majestic Alps beckon !!

    From Liechtenstein the gradient starts to go up as you head towards the source of the Rhine. Heading towards Chur the river passes through breathtaking ravines.

    Today is the day where I say goodbye to the Rhine, my friend off and on, for the past 1,477 km. The Rhine passes through six countries, and under three different names; Rhine, Rhein, Rijn.Read more

    Bernina Express

    May 30, 2018 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Today we caught the Bernina Express train across the Swiss Alps. We travelled across 196 bridges, through 55 tunnels and across the Bernina Pass at 2,253 metres above sea level. Thank you Wikipedia. I'm sure the photos don't do it justice.
    Graham was on fire this afternoon. We got off the train and there were six older people asking if they had heard correct that we were staying at Hotel Post, as they were, and did we know how to get there. "Oh follow me" says Graham "I know how to get there". So all eight of us trudged up the road with our suitcases for a few minutes before Christopher Columbus decides it's in the other direction. We crossed the crosswalk and dragged our luggage (some of us were limping) for another block, and now it's raining. Oh maybe it's in the COMPLETE OPPOSITE DIRECTION. I was so embarrassed I could have killed him.

    Ein paar Meter ausserhalb von Chur

    July 6 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    ... und schon gefällt es mir schon viel besser. Aber die Autobahn nebenan ist brutal laut.

    Ab jetzt bin ich wieder alleine unterwegs. Das Wetter ist wechselhaft bewölkt und sehr windig, immerhin Rückenwind.Read more
