Wohlen - Kart Track


There aren't many opportunities to drive quickly in Switzerland so when my ex-boss offered me the chance to drive his race kart, I jumped at the chance.

Jumped too much as it turns out, as my last skiing injury hadn't completely healed and I ended up snapping a bone in my arm. Why is it called humerus?

Quite impressive without even having an accident...

Anyway, don't let me put you off, it's great fun, check out for opening times and prices.

PS I'm feeling a bit indisposed, so may not update quite so much over the next few weeks.

Swiss Photos of the week


To start (above) a relaxing Alpine spring view. And still in the mountains, washing hanging on the line:


Another night-time train shot, near Lausanne:


And from Ticino, just to show there is still snow around, Monte Tamaro:
