Ciao a tutti
I hope you enjoy my selection of photos. Most of these photos were taken by Alis Agostini. Her blog (in Italian) is http://alisagostini.it
Some notes to assist viewing:
If you click on a thumbnail you will be able to navigate through the entire gallery in the pop up image viewer.
The best slideshow can be seen by clicking on the [Show PicLens] option but may not work on mobile devices. The [Show as slideshow] option is now working correctly (I hope) 🙂
A nice 30 hour round trip of over 900 km with an overnight stay at Villingen in Black Forest to listen to jazz. John Zainer, piano, and Arno Haas, sax. http://goo.gl/maps/ReysT We took the San Bernardino which is slightly longer than San Gottardo but a much nicer drive with less traffic. Coming back we turned off at Lugano and took the ferry from Menaggio to Varenna and thence home. As you can see we had fantastic weather, cold in the mountains but cosy in the Morgan, top down all the way.
Inspired by the devotion of Frère Jacques I have put up most of the photos Alis took on our pilgrimage to the abbeys and monasteries of Provence. The piety and devotion of the brothers and sisters should be an inspiration to all who stray from the the straight roads and onto the narrow and twisted paths. If only all wanderers could face the temptations of road with the same serenity and joy.
Each year a small group of Morganisti organise a tour in their home region. It is usually limited to 6 cars, and 5 or 6 days. This year it was in the Midi-Pyrénées region of France, specifically the departments of Lot, Aveyron, and Tarn. We started in the town of Cahors and continued to circulate on wonderful roads following rivers and streams, spectacular gorges, passing medieval villages and towns, stopping every so often to refresh ourselves with local delicacies and wonderful wine.
