I left Möhringen just after breakfast for the ride to Switzerland. Heaven smiled on all the weekend travellers with warm sunshine and a blue sky.
I got to Lucerne, Switzerland, just after 13:00. My friend and travel companion of many kilometers Evelyn Gomer organized a special surprise. We had to travel along the shore of the Vierwaldstättersee, the beautiful lake at Luzern, to Gersau where we were going to stay the night at the youth hostel “Hostel Rotschue” (www.hostelrotschue.ch). The youth hostel lies within meters of the lake with a stunning view on the Alps. There was still some snow on some of the mountains..
During the ride to Gersau I had just one wish: May the ride never stop! There is no way that I could describe the beauty of Switzerland I saw on my way to Gersay. Take all the clichés that you have read about Switzerland, multiply it by a thousand and then you will have only a slight idea of the beauty I’ve experienced today. Unfortunately no photograph can do justice to the beauty.
I owe Evelyn so much for sharing the beauty of her country with me!
On Sunday I turn west and will cross from Switzerland into Austria. Tomorrow night will be my first night in the tent.
Enjoy the photographs!
