I ended up here purely by accident – St Bernard Pass

Yesterday I spent the night in Lucerno on my way to catch up with friends in Grasse, southern France.

I spent most of the day riding through the Italian Alps, towns and villages then I hit the Aosta – Turin valley and WOW is all I can say. On every hill stood an old castle which in historical days would have collected taxes from everyone passing.

I stopped in Aosta nd booked a place in Lzndry, France but did not realise it was two hours away and in order to get there I had to cross the St Bernard Pass….of dear but what a way to end the day.
