Europe 2006

This was supposed to be a tour of Tuscany in Italy, but we soon found out all the Italians were on holiday at the same time, making for very busy roads, so we changed it a little and took in another 8 Countries as well. Was supposed to be 10 in all, but we never made Luxembourg due to foul weather. 9 out of 10 isn't bad.

We ended up touring through Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France, Monaco, Andorra, Spain and back through Belgium.

Spain was the only country it didn't rain, the rest were wall to wall thunderstorms. With the odd break in Italy and South of France.

3586 miles in all.
