No trespassing: Except for those who cross the border at daytime, by foot or by bicycle, with proper documents and goods not exceeding the tolerated limit. The Customs.

Hiking at the border ain't that easy. You have to bring your papers, or else...


To France or to Switzerland?

F for French Border.
S for Swiss Border.


Torn between two borders..

wow! pwede lakarin from your place to france or switzerland? galing naman nyan! 24x7 ba ang border police nila? or talagang may bakod? strict ba sobra? cguro dapat dyan mag hire ng mga border police ang US para mabawas-bawasan ang mga illegal immigrants dito :P

Dangkin, we're barely 2 hours by car from the Swiss border. There are some border police but i guess they stay mainly at the customs office, i dont really know if they do their rounds. I never bumped to anyone of them. The last picture shows the border itself hehe, see the line? that's the demarkation line. You could be in two countries at the same time.

Linnor, the first picture shows frenchguy and louna crossing the border. actually, at one point of the hike, we didn't know where we were, france or switzerland?

Leah, hehe, i don't that movie but yes, not a bad title..

Para palang dito rin sa amin, may bridge papuntang Bahrain, approximately 1 hour drive from our place, then may immigration sa gitna ng tulay. Imagine paglampas mo lang ng tulay ay nasa open city ka na, walang abaya, may pork, may movie houses...hehehe.

Ann, o di ba. it's great to have these borders near our place, a great way to know other culture.. sa tin kasi, kailangan pang languyin ang china sea at pacific ocean to see other country e.

yay! finally may snow na!
it took forever for snow to appear this year :)

Makis said...

Galeng! I've always wanted to hop back & forth over borders like that! We always cross borders the boring way - by autoroute :)

Duke, and we had to climb really high to see those snow..

Makis, i love that place (haut jura, massifs de dole). in fact, at the summit, you will have a view of mont blanc.. and geneva if not foggy.. but of course, you have to climb quand il fait vraiment très beau, sinon, tu verras rien!
