After a breakfast of croissants and local jam & honey we're on our way by 10am, it's warm and sunny. The packing seemed to have gone a bit ary today but eventually it all fitted, perhaps not where it was supposed to be. We've got to buy a vignette as we'll be using some motorway to crunch some miles, 40 ChF seems a bit steep, but it is valid for the year.

Using the A16 motorway (be nice if they finish it!) and the A6 & A5 we eventually get down to St Aubin on the north shore of Lac de Neuchatel, the Sat Nav had a hissy fit through the tunnels and couldn't decide which way to go. I think the south side may have been better, crossing the lake at Neuchatel. The temperature is up in the high 20's.


After a bite to eat we're off towards Lucern, although we have the offer of Yolandas' apartment in Basel it's a bit far back north to make it a sensible option.
Using the A1 motorway and the A10 heading East we arrive for an overnight stop in Escholzmatt and book into Hotel Lowen for our meal too.


Only 130 miles or so on the circular route from Bonfol, now our total distance is round 900 miles. / 1440km.

Planning for Friday, we're heading into Lucern for a look at some of the sites before hopefully heading south to do some Alpine passes in mid Switzerland as the forcast for the next few days is dry but overcast.
