We have been busy getting our house 'staged' to sell. And at the same time we are preparing for our upcoming trip to Europe. We will arrive in Paris the morning of the 14th and pick up our Renault and head for Nicola Ortonovo Italy via the South of France. We spend the first night near the Millau Viaduct. The next day we will drive thru the French Riviera on the way to Italy. We will be staying in the same hill-town villa that we stayed in 2011. We just viewed some of the videos that we took then to review the route to the base of the road up to the town. We have plans to stay a couple nights in Vicenza near Venice to spend a full day or two in Venice. The Giro d'Italia bike tour comes thru that area so we may see them at the end of one stage or the start of the next days stage. We have made reservations in Lauterbrunnen Switzerland for two nights on our way back to Paris to catch our ride home. We have visited this part of Switzerland a number of times and just love the area. We will not have wifi in our house in Italy so posts may be few.
