On the last stretch, we were drawn home quickly. We drive onto the Grimsel Pass, which was much more fun again!
At the top we have a coffee at the Grimselblick Hotel. And memories come back to me. Almost exactly 3 years ago I walked from Lake Maggiore to Bern. On foot. With few clothes, but a cooker and tent in my backpack. When I arrived at the top of the Grimsel Pass, it was quickly clear that I would take a room here. The temperatures and the atmosphere suited this little luxury on my crossing of the Alps.
This time too, as we sit here like this, I remember the mood, the joy of having made the pass. I remember catching sight of the Bernese cantonal coat of arms and now knowing I was going home. This time, the "climb" was a little less strenuous thanks to 136 hp under my butt. But just as beautiful.
We slowly roll back down the pass on the Bernese side (Gerd was kindly reminded by the police to take the solid lines seriously - I can hear everything via helmet radio). Along the Oberaare - it comes out of the Aare glacier here - we later roll past the Aare gorge and probably the two most beautiful lakes in Switzerland: Lakes Brienz and Thun.
On Lake Thun, we are quickly drawn upwards once again: We want to visit a co-living space. In Aeschiried there is a new co-working or co-living space for people who are on the move and also work remotely. Exactly something for us. If we can't leave in September (borders and all...) we have to find a nice place to live and work somewhere. And hope to discover it up here. With a view of the Niesen and Lake Thun - not bad! And: It looks good. We will report back. @z_aeschiried
But now it's time to go home and plan the next adventures.
