After 3 days in Rome, I received a call from immigration office in Bern where my visa is registered. they asked me to go there by myself and stay inside Switzerland before my visa expirs. I am trying to extend it and stay longer in Europe to have possibility of visiting Switzerland more often and meeting board members of the association to discuss and to work more on the association.
Now I am leaving my bike here in Rome and from today I will start hitchhiking to Bern and also camping along the way.
I will have some fun anyway...
