Passo dello Stelvio
On mid August we went to Switzerland/Italy to climb this great monster…Passo Dello Stelvio.
This time we didn’t miss to invite ou italian friend Andrea Schilirò to join.
Andrea (A.K.A The Rocket Man) never stops, he is like an atomic battery : nothing is never enough… Ah ah!
We had a great moment together riding these beautiful landscapes.
We’ve left Paris on august 13th early to go to Zurich by train with Pascal, Julien Rideau our great friend and director, and Christophe Couot in charge of the sound…(Thank you Christophe, the sounds are beautiful).
Nicolas we missed you a lot man ! NEXT TIME !
There, we get a car and went for 5 hours driving through mountains…(slow…slow…)
We finally arrived around 5pm and went for a small ride going around Bormio to a secret place Andrea Knew.
Totally washed out by thetravel, we had a nice dinner in a cool italian restaurant in Bormio.
We did the Stelvio climbing (some did it twice! ah ah!) on the 14th with a huge sun !
Going down through crazy roads in the middle of thousands pine trees we stopped in a thermal bath only known by the locals (this is the secret place we went the day before).
You can reach this place by going through the forest. There, hot water is coming straight from the rocks and goes in a really cold river : amazing moment!
Then we had to go back to Zurich early on the 15th.
Too short…But what a great time !
