Colle del Piccolo San Bernardo/Col du Petit St-Bernard (2,188m)
Pré-Saint-Didier; La Thuile; Séez; Val d’Isère
Rain, rain, rain… I so got soaked to the skin today… it was incredible. Not only did it rain all day long without cease. The only difference there was resulted in either strong, stronger, or extremely strong rain – especially on top of Little St. Bernard pass it lashed into my face that it actually hurt.
There is not a lot more to tell about my day today. I didn’t see much of the most likely wonderful landscape around me (first in Italy, then in France – my final country on this tour, and I’m not going to leave it anymore before Nice). And this day showed the limits of my equipment.
Even if my tour has not ended yet, this was definitely the wettest day, no doubt. More wet is not possible. Which makes me look forward to the upcoming days and places to be seen and travelled through.
392km/8,850m ascent/8 passes to go!
