From The Highs Of The French Alps To The Lows Of Moriarty’s Demise.

First off, apologies for the delayed updates. Lack of a decent 'Net signal is partly to blame, along with us having to make an earlier than scheduled return to Blighty. Bear with me....all will be revealed in due course. Anyhow, where were we? Ah, yes, we were heading up the Col Des Aravis for a … Continue reading From The Highs Of The French Alps To The Lows Of Moriarty’s Demise.

The Awesome Wonders Of The Mont Blanc Range From Several Different Angles!

After our week of Grand Massif meanderings, on Tuesday morning last week ,we finally headed for pastures new, in the shape of Passy-Plaine-Joux - a small ski resort, popular in the summer with hikers, bikers and parapenters due to it’s absolutely awesome location! Half way up a mountainside, at 1360m, the resort has had the … Continue reading The Awesome Wonders Of The Mont Blanc Range From Several Different Angles!

A Week Of Meandering In The Grand Massif – Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval, Samoëns And Morillon.

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.

Lazing In Les Gets, Haute Savoie, For A Whole Week!

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!

Fabulous Alpine Driving In Switzerland-But That’s About All We Liked About It!

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!

A Whistle Stop Tour Of Liechtenstein!

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!

A Long (And Tolled!) Trek To Trieste!

Tuesday morning dawned and Team Sebo were ready to hit the Autostrada for Trieste. Yes, I know, Team Sebo normally avoid toll roads like the plague BUT, since Trieste was gonna be a longhaul (by our standards anyhow!), we bit the bullet, paid the tolls (€21.90 in total!) and managed to cover the 276km distance … Continue reading A Long (And Tolled!) Trek To Trieste!

A Week Of Ups And Downs In Northern Italy

As we left dreary Ovada on Sunday morning, the skies began to clear and we travelled north, into the foothills of the Italian/Swiss Alps. Semi-decent road surfaces and a distinct lack of traffic gave us a trouble free trek to Mongrando in Biella Province. A cute wee town with a forward-thinking Commune who have seen fit … Continue reading A Week Of Ups And Downs In Northern Italy

Santa Found Team Sebo in Albir! Phew

Harley was very relieved to find that Santa had managed to leave our presents under Sebo's Christmas Tree whilst we were sleeping last night......so much for having a "guard dog" onboard! :-). Our "silly, low budget pressies only " idea worked a treat and we had a few laughs as the contents of the hastily … Continue reading Santa Found Team Sebo in Albir! Phew
