Back from one week Alp Mountains offroad trip

Postby housil » Sat Jul 08, 2017 4:38 pm

I just came back from a 6 days, 5 countries Alp Mountains Germany -> Austria -> Switzerland -> France -> Italy offroad trip.

Europa´s most high border Italy/France at 2.744m (= 9.000ft)
Image

Visitung nice cities
Image

See old WW1...
Image

...and WW2 fortifications
Image

Driving at the edge of the Alp Mountains for hours
Image

In no mans countries
Image

Far far away from any food place...
So we had to have lunch sometimes in the middle of nowhere at 2.000 m
Image

Lucky me, I always bring an MRE with me
Image

10 years old "beef stew", great taste and also the FRh worked great!
Image

2nd lunch from same MRE
Image

3rd...
Image

But we also had great Italian and French food! :wink:

housil - Your pictures always "deliver"... truly enjoy those spectacular scenic views... question: the Alp Mountains roads you drove for ours, not paved???... one more question: traveling from country to country, no need for passports?

Nope, just graveled (if you have luck) or we drove on the plain rocks. These "streets" were built in/before WW1.

It goes without saying, you put off-road tires on your Ferrari 488 GTB!

What an adventure!! Great pictures and also great use of what looks to be a 13 year old MRE.

Love your Sunshine State shirt too, Housil! ;)
