How did I notice we were getting closer to Ticlio? Well, besides of the fact that it got cooler. I needed to look for my long sleeves shirt.
Then we reached the highest point of the journey: 4,781m. There was a station, where we stopped for about 15min. When I read we would stop here, I was thinking about taking a picture next to the sign with the altitude written on it, but it wasn't possible to do it. I wish I'd have done it, but it was so difficult to breathe and my head started to hurt... I left the train and the minute I started to walk, I felt like if I was getting weak... Furthermore, it was very cold. I had to wear my big jacket.
I walked a little, 15 steps at the most, hahaha. Just the necessary to take some pictures, proving I was at this high point and that was it. At least I wasn't the only one who didn't feel 100% ok. As soon as I was back at the train, I closed my eyes and tried to take a nap wishing my head would go back to normal :)
