We have seen all those mad cyclists huffing and puffing up and down while driving through the hairpins, actually we even saw one daredevilish biker wiping out right at the edge of a guardrail!! He must have been darn near a massive heart attack!
lolol..Yup!! I worked at the Cafe/Petrol Station/Kiosk at the Umbrail Pass so actually, I was in Switzerland. Well, by a few metres I was.
Please tell me you have stopped there!!
Also did 1/2 season at Albergo Folgore. Is it still there? Hope their plumbing is better if it is.
I treid staying nights there but the altitude did me in, could not sleep. Loved the ermine, birds and chamois etc about. Gorgeous scenery. Baaaaaaaad road.
