Away for a few days

Having taken care of all our administrative tasks and with our bed, dining table and shelves not to be delivered for another week, we checked the weather forecast which promised us a whole week of summer.
So, we packed our bags and headed for central Switzerland, advancing our Via Gottardo project, starting our  walk in Beckenried.

The nr 7 path actually proposes a boat trip from Lucerne to Flüelen but we felt like walking and followed the Trans Swiss Trail long-distance (Porrentruy to Mendrisio) nr 2, another path we intend to hike. As it was hot, it was quite hazy but this area is spectacular nonetheless. We stopped at Seelisberg, heading down to Switzerland’s smallest, unmanned youth hostel. We were the only guests.

Ayant pris soin des tâches administratives et nos meubles n’étant livrés que la semaine prochaine, nous avons vu que la météo nous promettait une semaine estivale. Aussi, nous avons refait nos sacs et sommes partis pour Beckenried, en Suisse centrale, avançant dans le sentier de la Via Gottardo.

Le sentier n° 7 en fait propose de traverser le lac en bateau, de Lucerne à Flüelen mais nous avions envie de marcher et avons suivi le Trans Swiss Trail (Porrentruy à Mendrisio), que nous avons aussi l’intention de parcourir.

La chaleur rendait la vue un peu brumeuse mais cette région est toujours spectaculaire. Nous avons fini la journée à Seelisberg et sommes descendus vers la plus petite auberge de jeunesse de Suisse où nous étions les seuls occupants.
