Ho noted that there had been "steep, sharp descent from the mountains filled with 180 switchback turns," which resulted in "a really bad fall."

But she assured her followers that she's safe.

"Don’t worry, I’m fine. Malayo naman ito sa bituka," she said.

In another post, Ho said there are many parts of Switzerland that are only reachable through hiking or biking. She shared drone shots of the country's mountains, verdant surroundings, and picturesque backdrops as she traverses the pavement.

She said they're taking their e-bikes around the mountains of Engelberg to visit a cheese factory and an Alpine farm.

"Bruised and all, it’s been totally worth it," Ho said.
