Orbe to Lausanne, 32.3 km

One minute update


Full episode


I rushed out of town at the crack of dawn on a 32 km walk through steep forests and flat agricultural fields.

There are water taps everywhere, or so it seems, and the fresh aroma of coffee in the air.

I asked for directions by an overpass and got stunned by stinging nettle for the second time.

It was a beer and a burger for lunch by railroad tracks because why not? I’ve earned it.

I walked on paved bicycle tracks for the majority of the day, village hopping my way to Lausanne. I got my first stamp in Switzerland at the cathedral.

The hotel was on me since I had a credit at I left my clothes drying by the rack and headed out into town.

I finally redeemed myself with a salad for dinner after the blood bath I had for lunch.
