Driving up towards the St Bernard pass and finally arriving in Italy to this view.
First stop on the way home, a night in Innsbruck for wonderful food and beautiful scenery.
Driving blind through Austria as it wasn't on our sat nav but finding the hotel where we spent two weeks walking in 1981. The hotel was still wonderful, we enjoyed a coffee and much reminiscing on the terrace wondering how we ever managed to climb all the surrounding mountains though we were younger and much lighter then.
Spending a night in the no frills Etap Hotel in Nancy, France, which was a bit like sleeping in a cupboard but less than 55 euros including breakfast and perfectly adequate. Next day on our way to the ferry we stopped off in Reins to admire the beautiful cathedral
and the equally lovely patisserie where we enjoyed coffee and cakes. And finally the journey home on the high speed ferry, that wasn't actually that fast and departed late but had such comfy seats and a jolly holiday crowd on board that we forgive them. Still lots to tell you but that's enough for today, back soon.
