Pontarlier to Vuiteboeuf, 28.2 km

One minute update


Full episode


A day I had been dreaming of has finally arrived. I left Pontarlier at 8:30 am and headed for the border.

the trolley felt a lot lighter and is always a plus.

First, an unnecessary climb over the hill through a forest to avoid the busy road. But what views of the Chateau de Joux overlooking the village below!!! I take back the unnecessary part. It was worth every step of the way.

I made it to the last bar in the last village in France and had a beer while I reminisced about the journey thus far. Got me the last French stamp at the tourist office and rushed to the border.

The cows gather to wish me good luck and a heartfelt goodbye.

Ate Crocodile of all the things for lunch at La Grand'Borne, a restaurant by the border on the Swiss side.  Then, it was up over the pass and down a narrow crazy zigzagging road to the village of Vuiteboeuf where I'm staying tonight thanks to Adam’s donation.
