Can i request the photos with the compact in full resolution please?Yes, on to day 5 then, with an invasion to Switzerland, before returning to Italy for the night.
For this day we had the shortest route of the trip, so there was no rush to get going. So time to ogle the sunrise again.
There was a parallel road on the mountainside, where the other half of the crew was staying. And as I was the only one interested in doing that bit I set off earlier on my own. Old navigation unit with somewhat poor overview options made this detour a lot longer and way different that what I had planned. We were heading north along the lake, but when I dropped back down to the lake, I was even further south than our apartment was. So I got to battle through a huge morning traffic jam, for extra fun.
After I had caught up with rest of the crew, we invaded Switzerland, with interesting results. My rear tyre suddenly lost almost all of its pressure. Fortunately there were some travel compressors around. It held most of its pressure (might’ve been completely fine even, I failed to remember that elevation and hence air pressure was changing constantly), but just in case some extra help was acquired from fuel station.
Continuing on, I ended up back in front, dealing with the little traffic we had. Remembered too late that there was a nice open spot, so best opportunities were lost by the time I got the bike on its stand and found my camera. But at least I got some action shots
Last straight to the top of the pass
