Into Switzerland…

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

(Emily) Another beautiful day saw us continue down through Burgundy, passing Dijon, and then take a south-easterly direction towards Switzerland, our goal for the evening.  As the day wore on, the landscape become more hilly as we built up to the foothills of the Alps and I got to experience my first tight turns which acted as ‘nursery slopes’ before the inevitable mountain passes. By late afternoon we had reached the Swiss border and got our first sign of snow-covered peaks. Relief at finding a campsite in Moudon (having passed no signs in Switzerland thus far) was almost thwarted by ‘moto interdit’ (motorcycles forbidden!) at the entrance, but James soon sweet-talked them round and we were pitched up by the river in no time. Another tasty treat of meatballs and taglietelle cooked up by James, with Matthew’s customary cup of tea to follow. We love camping when it’s warm!!
