So for Part two of our journey we decided to take a slightly different route home and visit some nice places along the way.
After taking the train back from Zermatt to Täsch we re-united with the EK9 and started to drive back through the Valleys direction Furkapass.
After meeting these cool moped guys making a similar roadtrip on their Puch’s and Piaggo’s at a local Cheese-shop (I recommend buying some local cheese, which there are shops sprinkled and advertised along the roads)
See the serpentines..?
The drive was really fun, but since it’s a bit shorter than the Furka-pass you’ll have more bikers and caravans on this pass. Check out this video of me driving. Don’t expect any crazy maneuvres. it’s a public road after all, but the view, while pushing the honda through thin mountain air at quite a noise level is definitely worth a thing 🙂 (Watch with sound and wait for VTEC kickin’ in, yo!). It looks much slower in the video then it actually was 😛
It’s just great. especially when you arrive on top at one of the two restaurants.
We stopped a bit further down to take some pictures with the grimsel dams in the background:
A few hours later down the road (i decided to enjoy the drive instead of taking photos) we made a stop to check out the lovely Aareschlucht (Aare river canyon) which is a nice walk, especially with the hot summer weather we had: It is a several kilometer long walk on a wooden path in the canyon above the river and definitely worth a visit.
After that, we continued towards Meyringen / Interlaken and then went over the Brünig Mointain pass. it’s a short one with lots of traffic, trucks and other stuff you don’t want to have. but still it’s a fun and also a direct link towards home 🙂
We then decided to go back home to enjoy our national day with our friends and families. But instead of just taking the Autobahn we decided to take all the side-roads and continued a bit through germany over the “Küssaberg”, which is another short mountain pass and a shortcut towards home again. Well it’s more of a hill than a mountain but it’s a really nice road…
After the National Day, we hit the road again for Part two of the trip. Pead soon in part 3 and 4 of the story on this Blog here 🙂
