... we decided to aim for Ernem 25km away. The route after Furkapass was gravel and heavily undulating. Some of the undulations being so steep we had to get up and stand on the pedals to get up the hill! That's a first for this trip. Standing up and pedalling is difficult on a loaded touring bike - it's very hard to balance (and also quite exhausting)! But we did make it. The route took us along side the Rhone for a bit, then up high, then back to ...

After a quick breakfast at the hostel, we were soon back on the road again driving through some of the most beautiful country I've ever seen with snow-capped mountains greeted us through the rest of our journey. Our GPS (named Silvia) was cheap, just like us, and avoided all toll roads which turned out to add yet another amazing experience. Right before a toll, we ...

On entering, they first take you inside the mountain and carry you about two-thirds up in a mine elevator. You ...
... the swiss guys came over to Chloe and I and began to have a two hour ongoing conversation in german. Most of the time I smiled and nodded, but sometimes I could really converse which was awesome, until he would talk again with that damn swiss accent and I wouldnt understand a thing. The swiss alps are truely like nothing else; I'll definitely return there someday with a mountain bike or skis.
