With my sister we wanted to discover a little bit our own country. So we decided to take our two bikes well equipped and to do one week trip trough Switzerland.

The beautiful lakes around Switzerland
The camping is nice but not that confortable and my back was hurting a lot.
Q & A
What would you have changed?
I should have checked my bike thoroughly before setting off as it had a problem with the gears.
Anything go wrong during the trip?
The night we slept in Zug a storm broke out and all our belongings and our tent were soaked. Fortunately we were very lucky as a farmer came and offered us to spend the night at his place. We accepted of course. The next day we left with a basket of plums from his farm. I will never forget his kindness and warm welcome despite his precarious farm.
What tips would you give a friend?
Prepare your belongings thoroughly. Take biodegradable soap so that you can wash in the lakes and rivers and also take long spoons so that you can refresh yourself if a water source is not nearby. And take only the essentials so you don't gain extra weight on your bike.
If you want to do a bicycle trip, don't forget to pack some special shorts for you butt. Because it will hurt like hell!
