After coffee, we looked at maps to plan our route…off to Italy!
Packed up and Rog took the road bordering the lake. On our left, the tiered vineyards of yesterday, but from below, Lake Geneva and the Alps on our right…Sensational!
A forest covered mountainous route so huge and dramatic that it can’t be captured on a camera!
For hours, we continued driving, in our air conditioned bubble, stopping only for fuel then realising how hot it was in the real world!
So, an hour from our site, we were guided off the main road and started ascending mountain roads, so high that we entered into clouds, deeply forested hairpin bends one after another…on and on…hooting as we climbed to avoid a collision with a fast Italian vehicle descending!
As Rog “motor-moved” the van into place, two friendly Italian men were fascinated and came over to ask about it…we explained as well as possible…was like magic for them! I understood, as they explained, that they had never seen such a device in Italy, nor in their lives!
