Open your mouth only if what you are going to say is more beautiful than silence.

Simplon - Die Verbindung

Most will know the Simplon as the road to go back and forth from Switzerland to Italy.

I've personally always seen the Simplon as both a separation, as well as a connection between my two countries. Being on top of the pass often puts me into a peculiar state of mind, with Switzerland, my native land on the left side, and Italy, the country I've been raised in, on my right side.

With its relatively large and curvy roads, the pass is also a whole lot of fun and I'm even learning to appreciate (and dare I say, getting fond of) the omnipresent construction sites with their eternal traffic lights.
