...and this is the view that greets us from Rob and Jodie's apartment. The Swiss Alps in the distance, and the French Alps on the opposite bank of Lake Geneva. There was a light dusting of snow on their peaks.
We jump in the Alfa 147 and head up the distant pass into Italy and France.
The old Vespa shop in Martigny. Reconditioned and returned to their rightful place in the shopfront window.
The Italian town of Aoste. The difference between Italy and Switzerland is palpable and we arrive on a drizzly, slow Sunday afternoon, when most things are winding down.
The old and grimy meets the new and sleek in the town centre.
We have lunch in a lovely little Italian cafe in the town centre, and I try my first
Cafe Creme Fredda. A rich cold cream coffee.
