Our camper has an engine problem, so we had to look for alternatives for this years summer holiday. We looked at last minute offers, but bringing all our own food to Greece didn’t seem like such a good plan. The kids wanted to sleep in a tent anyway, so we went to Tenero in the Italian speaking part of Switzerland. We were too hesitant to look for a camp in Italy after spending a night on a horribly disgusting camping in Porlezza a few years ago. With the camper, the space for luggage was never really a problem, but this time everything had to fit inside the Jag. I told my wive to pack only the most necessary things. Men and wimen have different standards as to what is important to bring on a holiday and so I ended up squeezing all this into the small car:
This was actually the first holiday in 13 years where I didn’t bring my paraglider. ButÂ after the impressive list above, there was just no more room left in the car.
The camping in Tenero was great. It was clean by my wive’s standard which is quite an accomplishment. The camping has a sandy beach to the lake which was also clean and had perfect temperature.
Being so close to the famous hydroelectric dam where James Bond jumped from, we had to visit the Verzasca valley. The water and the stones were marvellous. But it was very hot for hiking.
