... Genoa is an extremely busy port city and the traffic is murder! 15 Klms west of Genoa we found a 'parking lot campsite' in a coastal village / resort called Arenzano. After a 300 Klm run in the 'truck',.. averaging some 65kmph,.. we were looking forward to 'cocktail hour' to end the day. Arenzano looked like a lovely, typical Italian /Mediterranean resort town in August,.. people everywhere in holiday mode,.. cars parked anywhere and everywhere and busy,..busy,.. ...

We have been extremely lucky with the weather, mostly sunny with periods of cloud, but no rain to speak of. Continuing on our journey, we traversed the mountain staying pretty flat with the odd up and down, ...

It's been a wet start and finish to our first wedding anniversary today. Best intentions for an early start we're delayed by heavy rain this morning, but we made the first 50km before lunch in great time and had a big lunch outside the supermarket in Saint Michel de Maurienne. We then climbed Col du Telegraphe and the rain started again just as we arrived into camp in Valoire. Currently tucked in our tent, enjoying looking through the photos so far while the rain continues ...

... After the breakaway you get all their support cars. Then behind the pack, you get more support cars. But if you are in between the two groups, you have to fight your way rough the support cars too! We tried to find frogs legs for dinner but failed. One of the few places I have seen them was in a Chinese place in Geneva where you could get them salt and pepper style! Alas, it wasn't france, so that was not on the menu that ...
