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.

  • Packing tips?

    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!
