on the road.
My wife I are heading south in September. Leave U.K. Via tunnel 12.50 on the 6th.(Thurs).
. Stopover near Riems that night then onto second night stop on 7th to set us up for doing the Swiss highpasses. We will also be doing the petit st. Bernard where they film part of the Italian job :) we have then to make our way to Austria where we have booked a week at the hotel Enzian in Landeck near Innsbruck for a week. If you have never done the passes in that area,truly you have missed out on something special!

I did some of the passes last year, they are fab. I find it hard to decide what gets missed out, just as much as what gets put in on these trips!

Yes the passes are fun :). After that we are going to Budapest. Back in 2008 we did a whirlwind tour of Europe , we did a nightstop there and thought we must go back one day. Its only taken four years!
. . . . Anyhow, good luck with your trip and stay safe.:cool4:
