Reday to go. We had Viking signs to show Europe who we were and where we came from.

Take care!

We used the www.autozug.de from Hamburg to Basel. We spent the night on the train and slept OK. The Spiders were lining up at the Altona Station in Hamburg. Kenneth is eager to embark the train and moves slowly ahead . . .

Stina shows her Viking helmet. Cute, really cute. The Danish Giulia waits together with a Kamm-tail Spider from www.duetto-club.ch who were kind enough to drive with us over the Alps. This is Andy from the Swiss Duetto club and his 1750 Spider Veloce. Thanks Andy.

Always time to relax and talk about our Alfa Romeo Spiders. We arrived at Lago Maggiore and our Hotel south of Laveno,  east side of the lake. Early next morning, a moment to check the Alfas.

An Alfa Romeo should be  red, right? Our very nice friend from Switzerland, Enrico, AKA Spiderman. He guided us from Basel over the Alps and the next day to Bellinzona and Valle Versace. Enrico Spiderman took us all to Bellinzona and Valle Verzasca.
