    First stop Arras france , to visit a couple of war mem sites, then Epinal and the start of Le Grand Ballon, superb roads and scenery, (didnt see much last year with Billz /Zedwheels) bit of a blur.lol
    Then onto Mulhouse to visit the Schumphf collection of cars. (Mrs M is very tolerent)
    Then we are on to Martigny , Switzerland via the Sustenpass and Furkapass.
    Leaving Martigny we head south briefly into Italy Aosta, via the Grand St Bernard Pass,continuing to Bessans , france via the petit st Bernard pass, and the col de l'iseran.
    Leaving there we are heading south via the col d'izoard, Barcelonnette, col de la cayolle, hoping to arrive at Castellane next tues night, (if all goes to plan , an we dont get lost int mountains, lol)
    Plan to spend about 5 days down there as its an ideal base to explore the Verdon gorge and within easy distance of Nice, Monaco, etc,, will try an post a few pics enroute, wi- fi allowing,

    Maybe too late with this Moz but if you haven't got a site in mind - would recommend a visit to the Thiepval Memorial to WW1 missing. We diverted there when enroute Calais to Reims this year. We were there at 0630hrs - nobody else about on a sunny morning - difficult to put into words but very moving to say the least.
    Enjoy the trip.

    Arrived in Arras called at the canadian memorial at Vimy ridge, pretty spectacular monument to the fallen, parts of the area is fenced off unexploded shells etc, certainly makes you think when you see how many gave there lives, a moment for reflection,
    Anyway gonna have a wander to the old part and find a bar, thirsty work this driving lark

    You need to visit the little Cafe called Hooge Crater in Belgium, it has a fantastic museum.
