    We're all packed up and ready to head off to Dover to catch the lunchtime ferry to Calais

    We're heading down to Italy for a tour of Tuscany, taking in Cinque Terre, Sienna, San Gimigiano and Florence

    Hoping to find some decent wine, food and sunshine

    Happy Days!!!!

    Regards
    Robert

    image.jpg Just about to leave St Jean du Maurienne to head over the border into Italy. Have stayed in two Aires so far. Great value compared with campsites. Have had problem with getting broadband since arriving in France due to problems with not access to 3G. Apparently having just done a software update on iPhone 5 you now have to switch off European roaming to be able to use data roaming in Europe - how crazy is that.
    Chose to use toll roads so far as we saved over 2 hours driving each day. The toll roads have been quiet and stress free - worth the money if time is not on you side

    If stuck for internet there is always MacDonalds.....free wifi all over Europe but can be tricky in some places. ie In Germany you have to have a German mobile phone, we bought a sim for our mobile. They text you an access code!

    Really Jealous....have a great trip.
