We write Sunday, May 15,2016 and I get up early in the morning and set off for the train station. I reach Brig at 8:10. First, I set my new poles to the right height (never walked with walking sticks before). Then I’ll head for Fiesch.
Early in the morning I get out of bed. After a good breakfast I will soon be on the train to Valais. At 8:20 am I reach Visp shortly after the end of the Lötschberg Base Tunnel. Follow the trail to Brig, which is signposted with 2h 45min.
