I already shamelessly dubbed my cycling adventures in France ‘Tour de France‘ and those in Italy ‘Giro d’Italia‘, so it should not come as a surprise that, now I have planned an adventure in Switzerland, I will dub it the ‘Tour de Suisse’.

That stage brought me the Gotthard (old Tremola road), the Furka and the Grimsel and I was so impressed by the landscape and the overwhelming views, that I promised I would be back one day.
