Things to do this arvo, so little spin up the Aspin & to Lac de Payolle was all there was time for today. Oh well! wink

13:53

Today's ride: bit grey but always something interesting to see. This is on the dam wall at Stausee Kleine Kinzig.

11:53

Ride from the Med coast up brutal climb (20%+ ramps), past vineyards, a castle & lakes. You know, the usual stuff wink

12:38

Our drive today is tourist route 13. This is Granvinsvatnet, a small lake. Norway is so perfect when the sun shines!

10:21

Short hike up to Roche des vieux chevaux (great views down to the site we're staying at) & Lac de Lispach.

08:30

Stuck the phone out of skylight above our bed not long after waking up & hit camera shutter. Looks like a nice day!

19:09

Rainbow over Lac de Longemer. And the view a few minutes later. Wow! Loving this place!

14:55

Lac de Longemer: what a spot! Roads here are awesome, but there's baguette & cheese to be eaten before any riding! wink

09:05

Morning stroll by the lake shore next to Castle Howard. Saying hello to some of the locals along the way... quack!

08:55

Just back from breakie looked out the window to see amazing light on the lake. Wow! It's so beautiful here. So lucky!

06:20

Nyepi day in Bali. Silent at dawn. We cannot leave hotel today so booked one with large grounds. So beautiful here.

13:40

Lunch spot: Refugi de Juclar. Nippy at around 2300m up. Lake next door would be prettier if it hadn't been drained sad

23:20

9km later... back down by Lac du Tech. Such a nice way to spend a few hours.

14:30

This morning's ride was round a misty Lake Como. Menaggio to Bellagio. Shots on the ferry back home. Nice way to end.

18:05

Sitting on the balcony at dusk, looking across at the lights on the other side of Lake Como. Nice way to 'unwind' wink

16:05

Arrived in Menaggio & love the view. A few shots straight off the balcony. 12/85/300mm (DX) if you're wondering wink

10:30

In Italy, but had a look up a valley into Switzerland as we passed. Lakeside train station here: nice waiting room!

14:25

Late-ish afternoon ferry back across Lake Constance. Great day! Some nice craft bobbing about here too.

10:40

Pfahlbaumuseum Unteruhldingen. Completely unpronounceable! wink Is an open air museum of stilt houses we passed today.

10:35

By the shore of Lake Constance. It's huge, with beautiful clear water as you can see. Waiting for the Mainau ferry.

18:00

Lake Constance at sunset. Hanging out with the swans... although Pratiwi finds them big & scary any closer than this!

05:40

A misty start to the morning looking down over Lake Brienz & Interlaken.

11:20

Another beautiful picnic spot for lunch, this time by Lake Thun.

09:00

Lac de Mauvoisin. A dam if the tunnels & wall don't give it away wink How much better would it be without those though?

14:40

Back down by the lake. Time for some to enjoy coffee & cake!

12:50

Ahhh... so this is what it looks like when the sun shines! wink By Lake Hallstatt - spectacular! grin

15:00

Rather overcast views across Lake Hallstatt. Pretty impressive all the same. Should look good on a blue sky day!

11:00

Königssee. Beautiful (allegedly the cleanest lake in Germany) but sadly only time for a very short walk here.

09:30

Weitsee near Reit im Winkl. Pretty little lake & nudist spot. Not that we knew that before! I'll spare the details wink

11:50

Passing Achensee couldn't resist having a little break and a stroll. Sadly a bit cloudy but nice all the same.

11:00

Despite how it looks this is a rather empty Sylvensteinsee Dam, looking back towards where we just came from.

10:25

Unusual semi-submerged statues by Amersee. And geese bullying Pratiwi. She'll stick to feeding ducks from now on! wink

15:45

Lake Annecy. Very beautiful, but such a traffic snarl up & busy in town! Would like to stay a bit longer next time.

04:40

Our hotel here is right by a small lake. Very pretty spot and very nice for an early morning stroll before breakfast.

13:20

Afternoon at Lac Chambon, then back again for dinner & walk after. Funny having raclette in summer, & with no heater.

10:05

Lac de Gaube. Clear blue water with that backdrop. Absolutely stunning. Had to stop for a bite to eat and enjoy tongue
