Trundling down the road, following the tracks of the cog+rail Matterhorn-Gotthard railways through Obergoms, Ulrichen and some smaller places down-valley, the heavy rain starts in Reckingen again….
Stuff it, it's enough now, time to find a place to stay, a place with a drying room, a ski-cellar, whatever
….just some place that's dry and warm and offers a chance to dry our stuff until tomorrow morning, setting us up for a fresh start.
The call goes out to the Park Hotel in Fiesch…and LUCK is with us!!
The only guests in the place….a BIG 10kg dryer AND a drying room….and some bike-friendly hosts…see you at 4!!
Bet your arse, you will!!
Can't slosh through the door quick enough
Goodie can't help it…
All sorted, hot shower, dry gear, no more shivers…and our host turns out the chef, barman, owner, aussie-phile and entertainer-general all in one.
The real boss behind it all
Lots of laughs… which is, what it's all about, right?
They certainly cherish their Aussie-memories!
Tomorrow's options? LOADS of them!!
Who mentioned venison steaks?
Bring it on, boss…bring it on!!
OH YEAH, SURE DO!!!
