... nearly, from whence we came. At least, back nearly to our mountain border pass (which, incidentally, again, involved no border control, no passports). I'd noticed a camping sign on the way down. Sure enough, a couple of miles off the road into the forest we found a campsite with just a couple of other people in it (French, Belgian, Czech, how international) and for just 16 euros a night.
