Trans-Swiss Trail (route No. 2)
I love to wander freely, to follow a rural path and to go whichever way I please. I let my mind go, wander around waiting to stumble upon the next signpost. I know that if I get too tired, public transports are always an option. The two stages of this hike bring you into a rich wildlife, making the walk all the more exiting.That time, we slept in the small watchmaking town of Saint-Imier before heading off again the next day.
