@slim-line tonic - The plan was never to do it in one day. I mean, god I'd be scared to do it in 3 even. Thanks for the advice though. I'm planing for around 400 miles per day right now, so I have time to see things. Am also planing to leave very early every day. Around 7ish. @RTLover - Man, I am now really doing this by myself and I've made a bit of a mad change to one bit of the route and am planning to do it in either 5 300 miles days or 4 400 miles days. The main change is going down from zurich to try the stelvio pass before heading to andermatt. Also nice to put my feet in Austria for an hour or so. I have no knowledge at all of the region. Do think it's worth adding a day for that? here is how it looks: http://goo.gl/JgMq2 Thanks guys, this whole thing of planning the route is super time consuming and your help has been a huge part of it. I'm really enjoying it though. Really can't understand why I wasn't doing this before. Anyway. Cheers one more time for all the help!
