So, the journey starts. ( And Jan is writing this blogpost because...because) (because stef is working)
We knew we still had some gear to pack so we went to bed early (don't believe me) which resulted in an early start (11 am) the next morning.

The apple cake was very good, although I wish I had substituted it with the Engadine Nut Torte :( because I never had the time to try it during the rest of my trip. Oh well.
