Gul Panag was in Bern, Switzerland, to attend the first-ever Formula E (electric car) race.
Scenes from Gul’s trip.
‘So I’m in Bern!! I’m here to experience the first ever Formula E (electric car) race the city of Bern is hosting. The entire city has been transformed into a racing carnival.’
‘And no ordinary racing this! It’s electric car racing – the future of mobility. The city of Bern (and Switzerland in general) has a stellar record of managing their air quality. AQI level is 23 and THAT’S what’s normal here. (Btw Delhi is currently at 506)’.
‘The weather is good. Rain expected. Race starts 6 PM. So excited! What you see behind me, on the hill is the track’.
‘With the boys. All the best guys .’
‘The calm after the storm that yesterday was. What a day! Today is all about soaking in the city of Bern. The last time I was here, it was in the midst of my very first #swissroadtrip from Zurich to Geneva. That time too I stayed at the stunning Belleview Palace Hotel. Lovely view of the Alps and the river Arre. Amazing memories!’
‘Spending time by yourself is a luxury. (Also, there IS a difference between being alone, and being lonely.) Thank you Bern, for a fantastic weekend’.
‘Looking up at a sky so clear, so blue, punctuated with wisps of beautiful clouds. (Cirrus? #avgeeks? Yes?) Bits of aviation keep popping in everywhere’.
