Well, having just posted the above, I now read that Switzerland just made masks compulsory on public transport, and will impose quarantine for those arriving from certain countries (IDK which yet).

We're hoping to drive back from Switzerland to the UK to visit family in the next few weeks. At the moment, it looks like we'll be quarantine free both ways according to the published lists form both countries from July 10th.

Had a quick check of Tunnel prices and it's about 400EUR return. :eek:

We enjoyed a stay at Champex-Lac, Orsières, Switzerland. There is a campsite at one end of the village and at the other end, we came across an amazing museum, it was a Nuclear Bunker Gun Emplacement to guard the route from the south into Switzerland.

That's where I got married! At the Hotel Splendide, just past the artillery fort. Our Cali is partly funded from wedding gifts too to make the link extra special.
An absolutely beautiful area with hikes up to the Italian border, to the glacier du Trient, or endless climbing and biking spots.

Yep, just cost us £420 for the 31st July returning a week later. September we are looking to get to Switzerland with prices at £220. Fluid pricing at its best I think!
If you think that's bad you should see the prices for the overnight ferry from Hull to Rotterdam, its the best part of 1ko_O

We are not going to bother to travel to UK. Prices are crazy for the chunnel per the above. It can wait until October.

So we will be looking for more posts on here about recommendations for Swiss sites, or possibilities to 'overnight' somewhere without causing a fuss...

Small cottages for 2 - 6 persons.

You see the light gray area above the glacier their was the ice in 1970-1980

And when you want to go up the mountain after you went down the hill and you do not want to get tired you can always hook your bike on the back of the Postbus

I will go back with in 2-3 years

greetings Mark
