Our journey started well if very early on Sunday. All our paperwork at the ferry was in order, the ship was large, new and practically empty.
Sunday we had a comfy night in the Champagne region of France, in a very small Ibis bedroom where we took turns to stand up. It was clean, cheap and conveniently on our route, no complaints.
We had a day of delays yesterday, roadworks and confusing detours in France, inexplicable long queues for the San Gotthard tunnel, but we made it to our B and B on Lake Como and our delayed dinner reservation. Despite completing the locator form required to enter Italy including where and when we planned to cross the border there were no checks at all, none into Switzerland either, no customs checks anywhere.
This is the lovely early morning view from our bedroom window. Just one more day in the car, with no pressing deadline to arrive and another of our epic journeys done. The church clock is striking 7 am, the sun is coming out.
