Two way traffic, but roads and tunnels only wide enough for one car!!!

  1. Whenever I visit Europe I am always struck by the history on every corner.

    1. I have to agree, I hated history at school but living in France has made me see it in a different light. Such an interesting place. Diane

  2. That would be like Russian roulette going into that tunnel. The age of those churches is staggering.

    1. It is had to believe that buildings can last so long but they were obviously built to last in those days! The tunnel (3 of them, but one with traffic lights) were our worse nightmare and we did that route 3 times!! T'other Diane

    1. Gaelyn thankfully we did not have to find out!!! Two of the tunnels were horrific with a bend in the middle so you could not see anyone coming. Obviously one would have to reverse but which one??? The third tunnel had traffic lights so it was not so bad. It was Nigel's worse nightmare driving through these tunnels and we had to do the route three times!!! Diane
