... terrace as we overlook the stunning mountain and lake views. We can't get enough of it. It's so beautiful! We are sure going to miss looking at it. But sadly the clouds begin to roll in again and the winds pick up. So we go inside where we sit in the cozy library room which has huge windows and we can still enjoy the views.

Day 274 1 hr, 1 km With the steep, wooded mountainside to my left and a valley that is quickly narrowing to my right it's only a few hundred meters and I'm in the next town, Messe. I know that the uphill climb is getting close, including my big goal: to cross the Splugenpass from Italy to Switzerland on foot. I know it was just planted here for the warm months, but seeing a banana tree in someone's yard just feels really unappropriate. C'mon folks, this is the ...
