Bee happy ..... back from another roadtrip

Been on holiday, another road trip, just love them!

View from car while driving the Alp roads into Italy from Switzerland

Alp roads, just like in the original film The Italian Job

Lots of tunnels

Driving through Italy to Lake Como

The hotel at the side of Lake Como which we found.

Lake Como

Gorgeous room in Italy

Our room had a balcony, just love these shutters

Hotel grounds in Lake Como

More tunnels

We started our holiday in Reims, France and then onto Switzerland.

We drove the Alp roads into Northern Italy with a view to finding some James Bond locations in Lake Como. Managed to stay in the hotel at the side of one location, where James is recovering in Casino Royale when the Swiss banker visits for the money code.

After Lake Como we drove through Liechtenstein and then Austria onto Stuttgart, Germany to visit the Porsche museum.

On to Reims again and then back home. We couldn't leave Reims without buying champagne!

Now I am back I can't wait to catch up with you all and start crafting again.

Bee happy x

  12. That looked a wonderful trip! You photos and talk of the tunnels bought back memories of my honeymoon 20 odd years ago when we drove through France and Switzerland to reach Lake Garda - one of the best holidays I've ever had, the scenery was spectacular, but those tunnels.......we timed one, took 15 minutes to travel through!!
    Thanks for sharing, sounds like you had a great time!
