Switzerland  3        16. -  18.Oktober 2016

from km  13 618  to  km  13 629                       total  11 km 


From the Italian - Swiss border it was not far to Ascona and I enjoyed the ride along the lakeshore from Brisago and Porto Ronco to the promenade of Ascona. It was great timing because I was only fife minutes later than my wife Astrid who joined me here with her campervan. We had enough time for coffee and vermicelles (chestnut mousse) in this gem on Lago Maggiore.

After coffee and some shopping we drove to our campsite in Tenero where we wanted to stay for a couple of days.

During the day we made a trip to the Verzasca valley a very pitoresque part in the Canton of Ticino. In the evening we drove to a typical Grotti (very rural restaurant of the southern part of Switzerland) and celebrated Astrid`s birthday with a delicious meal.

 The nexte day we had to drive back to our home in Birmensdorf.
