Monday 14th August 2017

Goodbye Italy, It's been one hell of a ride.

After breakfast we spent our last hour in the ocean.

Goodbye Hotel Pasquale & our smiley hosts..Our most expensive stay, but absolutely the number one location.

As we wound our way up the mountain, we get one final view of Cinque Terre.

The rest of today will mainly consist of this view for Ian while I snooze.

The Rhone Alps. The clouds form a moody backdrop.

We encountered what looked to be a passport checkpoint, turned out to be a 44 euro toll tunnel. Approx 9 miles, bargain.

Arriving in Saint Michel de Maurienne, Savoile...Seems Maureen has a town named for her!

The Savoy Hotel & restaurant, our stopover for tonight, The inn keeper tells me this is the only establishment open for dinner in town, on a monday.

Just to test his theory, a stroll to a nearby bar, yep back to the savoy it is, for a LOVELY steak & chips dinner. The house red, a perky little Cote de Rhone certainly hits the mark too.

Goodnight dear reader..Hope you have a nice " Nanny Monday" next one is on me!
