A Walk Across Europe III: Switzerland [Thru-Hike, Hiking Adventure, Long Walk, Wild Camping]
Hi. My, name's Ashley and in. 2017. I went for a walk, a. 2,800. Mile walk across, Western, Europe from. Baking, hot Spain, to, the icy mountain passes of the Alps this, is my adventure. Wanna, reiterate, how stupid, it was. After. Spain and France this, would be the third stage, of my walk across Europe. My. Route across Switzerland would link free of the Alps most iconic Peaks Mont. Blanc the Matterhorn, and the Eiger before, heading north to Lake Constance or, bodensee, as is also known. I'd. Left Tarifa on the southern tip of Spain five. And a half months, ago and had, spent all that time walking, and camping, across, Spain and France alone. But. Now my friend Ian had come to walk with me for a few weeks the, only time between Sarita, and Vienna I would have company. Together. We made our way along the Shama Neve alley across, the windy colder bomb and over, the border into Switzerland. Today. Walking. In. The world. Heading. Up to. Grocery. I dig which. Is the pass and. Kind. Of North out with during the world. Talking. 900 meter climb but the pass itself has think. Less than 2,000, meters so. Should. Be okay and. Being. Left on the on, the train. Heading. Back to England been walking, for a month so. Now I'm back on my own yeah. It. Was a bit strange at Mont, it's. A. It's. Beautiful day very. Cloudy but. Balls, peaks would be Uyghur in the wetter whore, with. Snow on looks. Looks. Amazing. And. The Warsaw. Yeah. This, is all, sleep in a dream, where nothing's. Wrong. Believe, in something. But the writings, um. Research. So. Ah yeah. An orientation, save, our lovelies. Wet. Horn the Eiger. It. Was yesterday, let's have a look. So. I'm a bit of a groovy. After to me well, yeah, late afternoon. Basically. Stopped, at blacking. Up on. The, way up to this pass sort sir n so. N n pass I've probably pronounced that wrong sorry Switzerland. And. The contours, weren't looking too good on, the map so stopped, blacking up and I said met. The girl, where nurses are is, there anywhere to camp here and. She says oh no but, but. There's a house further. Up an, hour an hour up the hill and no. One's in it and you can sleep in it I can. Use to me it's not marked, there's nothing marked on the map so, for all right great that'll, do me there's. A lot of low cloud around and, it's, brittle, over the past now, so I was like well I don't really want to camp if. I can help it but anyway as. I was leaving she saw do you want anything to eat or drink I. Says oh no I, love a tea so, I bought two big. Big bowl of tea it was so. I had that and. And. Then I, was about to leave and she saw I. Do. You want some cheese this is all right. Really, want to spend anything else which, is oh just one minute so she goes. Into. The, farmhouse and brings me this big. Wedge of cheese look at that. If. She's not it's a present from, me to you so great. So I've got big, big slab of cheese and, took. Him to that later and, I. Made it up to this Hut but, just pretty, much right in the path and. It's like two thousand. Two. Thousand, two hundred and, ninety one metres. So. I'm going to crash out on the floor. Have. A little of, something. To eat, and. Feast, on this cheese. Yeah. Pretty. Good going. Thank. You locking, up. Hmm. No, I feel really nice. It's. Kind of expecting it to be like, keep, breathing ly hard but it's really soft. This. Is a class, you. Know I was going to eat some now eat. Some tomorrow, and, but I think what's. Gonna be difficult to not eat it. I gave, the help. We'll. Say Swiss, Alps today are particularly, stunning. Lovely.
