    Default Doing the Top Gear tour.

    This September we had a wonderful vacation at the Lake Como in Italy. We drove down from Norway through Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. Due to great weather we drove over San Bernadino on our way down. Got totally smoked by a couple of Ferraris on the way up. Not often to see a Enzo in full flight!
    Driving home again we chose the Stelvio since it is probably THE most talked about crossing in Europe. Imagine the suprise when the clowns in Top Gear had done nearly the same route when trying to find the ultimate european roads!

    A great view from San Bernadino:


    The southern view from Stelvio:


    Turns, turns and more turns:


    We also passed through Schwangau in Bayern to visit the Neuschwanstein castle:

    Did you know you used to be able to take a truck over the San Bernadino Pass(Not sure if you still can), Imagine getting stuck behind one at the bottom going up!!
