3rd - 9th April Chavornay --- Pavia
3rd April. As we left home Valentina wished us luck by throwing a mug of water on the road.
Vevey. We arrived at Lake Leman near Préverenges and passed by Ouchy and Vevey.
Our first pitch. Les Horizons Bleus campsite in Villeneuve
Sunset over Lake Leman.
Night lights at Montreux.
4th April. Although we had lots of warm clothes and very good sleeping bags, it was a cold night.
Still in the Canton of Vaud, we cycled towards the Alps.
We crossed the Rhone river near Vouvry, into the Canton of Valais.
After over 100km, mostly along the Rhone river, we arrived in Raron at Camping Santa Monica just as the moon was rising.
5th April. Leaving the campsite in the morning.
Day 3. Video. On the way to Brig to take the train through the Simplon tunnel.
Heading towards Brig. It wasn't hot but it was sunny. Just right for cycling.
We took the train from Brig in Switzerland to Domodosola in Italy. It's about 30 minutes through the Simplon tunnel.
By taking the Simplon tunnel we avoided cycling over the Alps.
River Toce south of Domodosola.
Camping Lago delle Fate, Lago di Mergozzo.
Full moon at Lago di Mergozzo.
6th April. Morning view of Lago di Mergozzo.
Midday break at Omenga by Lago d'Orta.
View from Alzo above Lago d'Orta.
Camping Cusio at Orta San Giulio. We stayed 2 nights. There were chairs and a table available for our use.
Lovely evening sky.
Visiting Orta San Giulio. Cobbled streets. If you're cycling and your bottom is sensitive, you need to aim well here!
Walk along the lake and through the streets of Orta San Giulio.
