After having paddled the Reuss river already in 2013, I spent the Saturday with two friends to go down this nice and calm river from Bremgarten until Gebenstorf. It’s a perfect distance for a 1-day trip and can be reached in roughly 30 minutes from Zurich by public transport.

“If you’re doing multi-sport things it’s helpful to be super proficient in at least one of those activities that you’re doing. And that should be the bulk of your first trips. Make the other sports a smaller part. You need to be confident that you’re going to get the most out of your trip.” Steve Fassbinder

Below you will find a collection of inspiring quotes I collected during my preparation stage for crossing the high deserts of the Altiplano in southwest Bolivia as well as the Andes via Paso Socompa.
