Thanks Grant Johnson

Don´t worry, any time is good and always worth to visit

Sorry for my English.

It is a mixture of Spanish and English, which we call Spanglish

Nice trip Great pics

I went through Austria in June but wasted the trip by sticking to m'ways. I'll be going out next spring; I'll follow your route through the mountains.

Looks like you had a great time - loved the biker friendly signs - esp. the swiss one !!!!

Thanks for sharing
