Day 49: Andermatt to Mühlbach

A travel blog entry by jimboandsusan


... off the edge, but not going to help a stray bike! Some of the drop offs were quite hairy too! Fortunately, the views were incredible. We could see in the distance the switchbacks up to Oberalppass, the green mountains, the snow on the peaks above, and the clouds gathering around them. We even saw a steam train pass through the valley below! At the top of Furkapass, we were higher than any point in Australia. Woot! The descent from Furkapass ...

Stresa has a lovely lakeside promenade (perfect for the passeggiata), an old centre with cobbled streets and piazzas, and ...

Ticino: Italy meets Switzerland

A travel blog entry by kev_erin


... and Kev was the captain (steering). The motor cut out a few times but eventually we managed to paddle form Italy to Switzerland. It sounds like a long was maybe 80m. Once in Switzerland we enjoyed the view from the other side before paddling back. On arrival back to shore in Italy Paul said "Passports please!" because he knew we hadn't brought them, haha. We all got ready to head out for an aperitif (pre dinner drink that is typically drunk in Italy) ...
