On the Friday we say bye to Brian and me and Mozz head down to a Chateau in the southern France Alps before we head down to Spain where we will spend the week at a place called Las Tres Calis
The trip back has yet to be arranged as we will do this when we are having a beer n bq night at the villa so we might end up not comming back

We will try and update this as we go along.

Sounds like a great trip Bill would love to do something similar in the future when the kids have grown up and me and Tracy can get off on our own together.

I share that sentiment Aceman, a few more years before I can do a trip like this, I would love to drive down to Spain for the Spanish GP one year.

I have to admit I am likewise feeling I would like to do a trip like that maybe I should get my tent out and work out how to get it all packed in the car.

I shall watch for the updates with anticipation. hope you all have a great time!

Not a bit jealous:grumpy:

That little bit of road after the lakes in St Moritz is superb. We had great fun driving that last year...

Good route . Did Reims, La Jura, Chamonix to Genoa ferry last year but sadly not in the Zed. Intend to put that right this September and redo part of it to Lake Garda.
If you are eating out in Reims - recommend L'Apostrophe` in centre.

Really looking forward to this adventure with the martian and billz. When they go on down to spain me and Linda have decided to stay a little longer in Italy. Going on from Como to Lake Garda and staying there for 4 nights before making our way back home via Germany's Lake Constance one night, then on to the Nuburgring for a bit of a dash around a track and staying for one night. then onto Brugge for three nights before crossing back. 12 Weeks and counting.:coolsteer)

You will have a great time.

We drove down to Italy for the F1 and MotoGP via Mulhouse last year. Roof down, sun shining, tunes on, can't beat it.

Had our breathalyser kit, GB stickers, High viz vests, + beam convertors, only got one triangle because not going into Spain! Haven't had a set of bulbs yet though. When I checked out the cost of a full set of these it came to £95. :nailbiting: am I going to need all these I ask?? Viginete's sorted by Bill, So, nearly ready......:party:
