Don’t follow the tracks – also applies to mountain biking!

When you become a ski instructor you hear it a hundred times: Never follow the tracks. How come I wasn’t clever enough to apply the same rule when mountain biking? Well, I learned the hard way that this rule also applies to mountain biking… Lesson of the day: Have a look on a map before you throw yourself into your next down hill adventure. Here’s a pic from top of Salève mountain in Geneva – before I went down and when I was still smiling and clean. No need to show you a pic of AFTER the ride – you can probably imagine. Still great times out there!

Home again at Lake Geneva

After a fun night in Zurich with amazing Anca, Lunch with my former boyfriend at Lake Zug and a short visit to Lucerne I’ve made it all the way to my old home: Lausanne at lake Geneva. My friend Malin still lives here with her boyfriend and we spent a lovely day hanging out at the lake, having coffee, catching up on life and brainstorming about future adventures. Ah, what a delight to have a friend like Malin!  

Off to Switzerland!

I’m packing. For a roadtrip through Switzerland. Having lived there for two years there’s lots of friends to see and places to visit. And being just between winter and summer there’s also loads of things to take: 1 mountain bike 1 pair of skis 1 slackline 1 via ferrata set 2 climbing shoes + harness 1 bottle of Mosecco for Anca 4 jars of Bärlauch pesto for my lovely hosts 10 bottles of Radler (a beer drink that doesn’t exist in Switzerland) 1 goodie bag full of veggie stuff for Malin 1 booking for a graphic design course in Munich on the way back 1 Lonely Planet Guide for Switzerland (I’ll do it the tourist way this time) clothing and equipment for basically any situation (from snow to sunshine at the beach) Let’s see how I’ll fit everything into my tiny car… so excited to soon be on the road again.
