A fab mountain site packed with keen walker types and us!

The mountains between us and Italy, we're loving it as flat-landers from East Anglia.

This rackety train will whizz us and our van through two moutain tunnels and to the Italian border, genius!

Scarily dark hi-speed rail tunnel and out into Italy, wow!

Italy is every bit as beautiful as we were hoping it would be

On the shore of Lake Maggiore we spot this friendly German couple with their green van. Thanks for the coffee!

We're ready for our journey to be over. We are pleasantly surprised with Switzerland, its not as expensive as we were expecting, I think we are already used to British high prices.
