We’re still struggling with the clutch. We only stalled 4 times today, one was on the boarder of Switzerland and Italy. Yeah, right when the Poliza was watching. It has rained all day, we drove around Lago Maggorio. We stopped at Orto and viewed a park (at the very tippy top of the mountain) that has 20 chapels for St Francis of Assisi. It was very impressive all built around 1650 -1700. We then drove to Novara, had a cup of coffee during a down pour, we visited the Doumo the Romanesque and Baroque architecture is the best I’ve ever seen. (LOL),
As we were leaving Novara we started heading toward Genoa, Kirsten decided in the middle of a roundabout that she remembered the book Carl gave us. It recommended Asti as a stopping point. So she reset the navi (me) and I recalculated the route in the middle of a pouring rain while she stalled out the Audi. The Navi calculated the most direct route to Asti using the AutoStrada and we were there 20 minutes later sitting in our hotel.
As we’re on our second beer at a local pub watching the locals, we’re planning tomorrow’s route referencing Great Driving Tours of Italy. Thank you Carl.
Did I mention that it rained all day?
