Wattie and Jim's European Tour

Postby JimF » Sat Jul 02, 2011 11:04 pm

Hi
we are now on day 15 of our 20 day tour. We have driven too many mountain passes to remember but the drive today from the French/Italian Riviera to Aix Les Bains near Grenoble put everything else in the shade, including Stelvio. The drive was on the Route de Grande Alps and words cannot describe the road climbs and scenery. We are still to upload pictures from today but I thought we would put some of our pictures on the site. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the next Thursday pub night.

Location: not the end of the world, but you can see it from here or near Inverurie.

Hi Jim, thank you for awakening so many of the fond memories of Lucerne, I spent many months there when I worked in the wine & spirit trade...our largest importer of whisky was based in Lucerne and I spent many months there. The owner had a superb house in Lucerne, almost right next to the Chapel Bridge.

Fantastic! Did a Rhine cruise 3 years ago and sat on the boat thinking what a great place to bring the MX-5, so enjoyed seeing your pictures.
Cheers
