On Monday morning, we finally managed to drag ourselves away from Les Gets and took the picturesque Route Des Grandes Alpes down to Cluses to stock-up on food, drink, LPG and diesel. Chores done, we drove the short distance up to Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval in The Grand Massif. One of France's official prettiest villages, Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval certainly warrants this award … Continue reading A Week Of Meandering In The Grand Massif – Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval, Samoëns And Morillon.
After all the heavy-duty mountain pass driving over the last few weeks, Team Sebo decided to give Sebo (and his driver!) a well-earned rest once we got back into France. The drive down from Gstaad was pleasant enough and, as we reached Lake Leman, the countryside became much more French-looking. The chateau at Aigle was … Continue reading Lazing In Les Gets, Haute Savoie, For A Whole Week!
As we drove into Switzerland from Liechtenstein. we could understand how the Swiss Army lads had inadvertently crossed the border - errrr, there is no clearly marked border on the back road! Just a couple of narrow arches signified we'd left one country and entered another and the presence of a rather large Swiss Army … Continue reading Fabulous Alpine Driving In Switzerland-But That’s About All We Liked About It!
Our last night in Austria was spent wild-camping in Fussbach, just outside Bregenz. We'd driven through rain from Ravensburg and, on arriving on the banks of Bodensee (Lake Constance), it became evident that Bregenz and it's lakeside environs were popular tourist haunts so we couldn't find a sleepy spot anywhere near The Lake! We stocked-up … Continue reading A Whistle Stop Tour Of Liechtenstein!
Our drive from Kempten to Bad Waldsee on Saturday morning took us through a very different landscape from what we'd become accustomed to in Austria. With The Alps behind us, we were now in the "high plains" of Germany's largest State with sprawling fields of grazing and grain crops. The houses were less traditional wooden … Continue reading Blitzing Through Bavaria – Bad Waldsee To Ravensburg.
Yes, folk, Sebo's brakes were still the cause of sleeplessness nights for one member of Team Sebo so, on Thursday morning, we headed for the local Peugeot/Citroen workshop (like you do, when you're desperately trying to avoid a Mercedes Benz bill) in Schwaz. A rather disinterested young service manager listened to our plight then merely … Continue reading Brakes Boiled – Budget Foiled!
Today was a pretty awesome day for Team Sebo. We paid our money and ventured up to The Eagles Nest - or, as the Germans would call it "Das Kehlsteinhaus"(fabulously interesting history of it if you click on the link there!) - which actually means "The House On The Kehlstein"- note, no mention of Eagles! … Continue reading Two For The Price Of One (A History Lesson And Awesome Views) At The Eagles Nest!
Our journey to Salzburg on Saturday morning, took us along the course of The Salzach River , through deep gorges and, once again, murky driving conditions (so didn't manage to get any decent pics of said gorges!), until we reached our sleepy spot for the next couple of nights - Camping Schloss Aigen, just 5km … Continue reading The Hills Are Alive….. But Not With The Sound Of The Famous Salzburg Glockenspiel!
Our two days and nights parked-up at Gastof Friedburg in Neukirchen were spent charging all things electrical, catching-up on washing and walking (in between the downpours and thunderstorms which have made an appearance every late afternoon and evening for the past umpteen days!). We had a fab view from our sleepy spot, overlooking the Wildkogel … Continue reading A Mixed Bag Of Weather Systems Dampens Team Sebo’s Salzburgerland Spirits
Our excitement at arriving in Mayrhofen was somewhat tempered by the disappointment of discovering that our hoped-for (cheapish) sleepy spot at the Parascending School was a) already full and b) reserved for clients of said establishment at this time of year! Fair enough! Not wanting to pay megabucks for a pitch at the town's only … Continue reading Weekend Meanders in Mayrhofen, An Awesome View Of The Hintertux Glacier And Krimml Waterfalls And A Two Night Stay In The Wildkogel.
