Summer Vacation Part Three

We were using miles for our trip and because we changed plans a couple of times we ended up an extra week after leaving Capri.  We took the train to Milan and picked up a car and drove to Lugano.  We took advantage of the time we had to look at a small university in Lugano, Franklin University.  K decided that the school is too small for her.  Her high school class is over 300 and this school is only 500 people.  We drove from Lugano to Megeve, France to see a leg of the Tour de France.  I decided that we would drive over the mountains because I was nervous about going through the Mont Blanc tunnel.  It was a long day but the drive was spectacular.  We got stuck in Tour de France traffic-something I had not accounted for and a 5 hour drive turned into an 8 hour drive.  From Megeve and we drove to Lyon in search of paintings and then worked our way to Venice, via Turin,  for our flight home.

The top of the mountain.  Moments before we saw a sheepherder with beautiful long horn sheep.  Still kicking myself for not getting a picture.


Once we finally got to our hotel we were shocked to see that the team from Astana was staying in our hotel!  How cool is that???


I love the food in Europe but sometimes I get a tired of the lack of variety.  I was happily surprised to see fajitas on the menu.  The green beans and corn were interesting.  Overall, they were really good!

Love the Madeline pan and the guy standing in the bag of flour.





Staging area for the racers and their support teams.





Megeve is a very sweet little town.  And you know how I love a French pharmacy.




The people sitting on the ground are watching the Tour de France on a big screen.
