    Hinterheim Lake

    October 31, 2019 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    A mass of driftwood takes up most of our gravel car park and fills the stoney shore in front of us. Hinterheim's turquiose waters are smooth as glass now, but at some point the rivers that feed it must have been raging with snow melt.

    Today's journey south has brought us closer to Ticino, an Italian speaking Canton of Switzerland. The landscape has been incredible, in the true sense of the word. Our route closely followed the course of the Hinterheim River within a towering gorge so steep it looked like someone had cut directly down into the bare rock like they were slicing bread. Where there wasn't enough space to accommodate both the watercourse and traffic flow, we were plunged into long tunnels blasted through the cliff, some of them with large arched windows to let daylight in.

    We weren't sure we'd be able to stop at this beautifully scenic location at the northern end of the lake because there were roadworks, but luckily the workers had left a right of way and we were able to squeeze Martha in beside the only other car, whose owner was collecting small branches, possibly for a craft project, possibly as firewood.

    We were both a bit tired from travelling, so just chilled out for the rest of the day, watching the yellow leaves as they were blown from nearby Poplars. The steep sides of the valley were forested with pines and looking south we could see snowcapped mountains behind which the sun set that evening. It was a peaceful spot, perfect for a rest.

    Ab in die Berge

    September 20, 2019 in Switzerland ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    Der Sufersee und die Bergkulisse verleiten uns eine kurze Pause zu machen. Wir fühlen uns schon wie in einer Filmkulisse für Heidi - dann leuten plötzlich auch noch Kuhglocken und etwa 10 Kühe mit Riesenglocken werden an uns vorbei getrieben.

    Nach anfänglicher Fahrt durch Städte mit Stau und lustiger Ampelschaltung (1sek rot dann wieder grün), kamen am Mittag wieder schöne Strecken.
    Wir hielten bei einem Bauer an, um Käse zu kaufen und bekamen gleich noch eine Käserei Besichtigung

    Splugen (CH)

    July 25, 2017 in Switzerland ⋅ 🌧 9 °C

    Time to now cross the Alps.

    Yesterday I was caught in two storms before 10am and only made it halfway of my planned route. Called it a day and decided to find some place dry.

    Second attempt today not much better. Started out, but turned back after a few km. Freezing cold and raining. Opted out and caught a bus for the last section (20 km), with the bike hanging precautiously on a rack at the rear of the bus.Read more

    Via Mala

    July 14, 2010 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Und dann auf in die Berge, durch Österreich am Bodensee entlang, das Rheintal hinauf, immer tiefer in die Alpen, bis wir in Graubünden unseren ersten Reisehöhepunkt erreichen: die Via Mala-Schlucht. Schon die Römer nutzten diesen durch den Hinterrhein gegrabenen Weg zwischen Chur und dem Splügen- und dem San Bernardino-Paß.
    Im Mittelalter verfiel er immer mehr, so daß er Via Mala genannt wurde, rätoromanisch für "schlechter Weg". Durch die Figuren wird markiert, wo der Pfad auf halber Höhe die Schlucht entlangführte.
