Splügenpass - Border between Switzerland and Italy, August 2016On two wheels (Op twee wielen). Just turning the pedals around and some steering here and there. That's it.

I would like to thank Ania Lentz-Michaelis and Remy Bosch for translating it specially for my Danish and Japanese friends, and all the other who prefer English.

For building this website, I would like to thank Joris Lange of Smart Joomla Websites. He was my navigator along the digital roads of a html landscape.
