Ten minutes in Liechtenstein is more than enough for us. Back in Switzerland, the mountains dominate our vision and our thoughts. They even affect the illumination and the colours here in the valley bottoms, the narrow sky providing a theatrical spotlight that paints the springtime meadows and woods in near-fluorescent greens. We peel off the motorway after Chur and begin a gentle ascent of the westwards valley, between chalet villages and meadows of big-eyed cows where Family Robinsons are gathering the hay. Lovely, but not enough to distract us or delay us from the pull of what lies just ahead: three juicy high-mountain passes.
