Some photos of my road trip. First stop: Annecy.

 By: amanico : July 5th, 2021-17:08
The photos will tell you all: The weather was not fine on the first day, to say the least. The Alpine was tops on such a quite long distance ( 550 Kilometers ). The old town is charming. A few first pictures, but I will explain later why it is called " th...  

Nice! Did you remember to bring an umbrella?

And where are the pictures of the speedometer and temperature gauge in the Alpine? I'm thinking like this, so we can see if it was a warm summer rain... Mike ...

The cockpit of your car remembers me what i see as i drive my car. The speedo and the green flower, that’s Honda. ...

Lovely town, but your Alpine is looking gorgeous!

Annecy was a quick pit stop for me on my way from Geneva to Lyon. Would love to spend a full day or two there! Enjoy!

Beautiful car,

And the village, and the lake, and... Everything!

I've never been to Annecy...

but one of my favorite films takes place there: Eric Rohmer's 'Le Genou de Claire'. One day I'll make it there!

You really get to know a car ...

When your phone slips down the side of the seat, your powdered sugar donut makes the wheel all sticky, and

God Forbid, your carton of chocolate milk tumbles over into the front seat upholstery (preferably velour), summer racing tires make driving in the rain a terror, you are in a strange city, you know your parking meter is about to expire and your car is jus...  

LOL, what a scenario.

About a week after we bought our newer Elan, my wife bought a beverage at the 7-11 on her way home from someplace. As Lotuses rightfully don't have any cupholders, she propped up the gigantic cup on the seat. I think it was a Super Big Gulp Or it might ha...

A Vladesque car I would say. Beautiful place you show. Need to visit some day. So many nice places to visit in France. Thank you for sharing with us Nicolas. Take care with spills please, I laugh so much with Mike Cazalea anecdotes! Lol! Un abrazo y disfr...

Annecy is a beautiful city.

 By: lm6 : July 6th, 2021-07:59
Have been there at the start of a bike-trip (cycling) in the Alps. Wonderful scenery and roads that must be perfect for the Alpine!

Thanks for the amazing pictures....

... it remains me at my trip to Annecy a couple of years ago (maybe 4?). In my mind there was great weather but a huge crowd in the streets. It seems the post covid tourism is not at it's level than before. Enjoy your trip! stere

This confirms my.....

Thank you, Nacelle.

hope you're enjoying your road trip, Nico!

 By: terbaboom : July 8th, 2021-11:26
and thanks for sharing the beautiful photos! it's so nice to have a big country where you can travel around in a driver's car and visit beautiful places... unlike here where the longest length point to point is only 50km or 31 miles

not bad at all...

 By: terbaboom : July 9th, 2021-14:46
pre-covid, it'll take me 1.5 to 2 months to clock 1700 km
