Review 1st day 2nd day 3rd day Home

 
The day started with sunshine, but unlike the previous day it stayed like this all day long. In 3 ¾ hours we walked down the valley Canario to Arirolo in Ticino. From above we could make out the endless line of cars in front of the St. Gotthard tunnel. What luck that we wanted to go back by train.
 
After a pleasant walk we arrived in Airolo early in the afternoon and boarded the train on time (how could you expect differently in Switzerland!). In Göschenen, Kerstin and Bernhard left us. They intended to go to Grenoble for another few days of hiking, while Pascale and I went directly back to Germany. We both had to go to work again the following day.
 
We had a wonderful weekend tour and we are sure, that this was not the last one.
