We must admit that we are very excited about Switzerland. Such a nice area. Yesterday we passed our day driving through the mountains, heading towards Venice. It was really great change of scenery from all the highways we had so far. Still it was quite difficult, cause as you might remember our GPS broke down, so we are left with google maps only So, we made it the old fashioned way!
The Alps were the ones that really got to us. They are soooo majestic. We tried to catch on photo their mood, but really no description will do them justice. Sustenpass road took us up to 2500 m high with the peak at 3500 and still guys were biking up there. And not any kind of bikers. The daredevil ones Over 60 years old guys and gals riding like in their teens and waving at us (see pictures below). The temperature shock was crazy. We slept at the bottom of the Alps in Interlaken where the beautiful lakes and amazingly, the light bugs made it for a magical night for us. The temperature there was almost + 30 degrees C. When we got to the top of the pass, the snow was SMiLing at us at a freezing 0 degrees that found us in shorts and t-shirts.
Another amazing thing about Swizerland is their capacity of diggggging. Maaan I can tell you now…they know how to dig. There were so many tunnels through the Alps that left us breathless. But the craziest one was an 18 km long tunnel going right through the heart of the mountain and getting you on the other side without having all the serpentine road and stuff.
There are so many nice things to say about this place that it would take us few blogs. Still, we will let you admire de few pictures we took and we’ll leave you hanging until tomorrow when Venice is next on the list.
Just SMiLE !!!
And listen here to the song we SMiLE and dance every day
