A few pictures, not so many words.

Daily B&W – On top

English translation below

Tag vier der Reihe, und dieses Mal geht es ein bischen weiter in Richtung Süden. In die Alpen, genauer die Gegend zwischen Italien und der Schweiz. Dort gibt es beeindruckende Pässe zu befahren. Einer davon ist der Passio Stelvio. Das Stilfserjoch. Unzählige enge Kurven winden sich den Berg hinauf und vor jeder einzelnen hofft man als Autofahrer, dass die Entgegenkommenden (Fahrräder, Busse, Supersportwagen) genauso auf die Straße achten wie man selbst. Die Aussicht oben am Pass entschädigt dann aber für die Mühen hinauf zu kommen.

Das Stilfserjoch von oben gesehen.

Day four and we are heading south a bit. Into the Alps and even more precisely into the borderarea between Italy and Switzerland. There are the most impressive mountain passes to drive on. Amongst them there is the Passio Stelvio. Nearly endless turns to climb up onto the mountain. And each time, one hopes that the drivers coming from the other direction (including cyclists, busses and ordinary supersportcars ) are paying as much attention on the road as one himself. But the price is paid easily when you can see the result at the top of the pass.

    • Don’t be jealous 😀 It is a beautiful road. The whole area is full of great turns. If the car is right and there is not too much traffic, it makes a lot of fun 🙂 But the road will be there for quite some time, so you could come over there yourself 😉
