John & Anne's Cortina to Cortina Photos

Recommended Posts

We thought it was about time we shared some of our photos, and to say thank you once again to Graham, Claire, Pete & Lynn for

organising a once in a lifetime trip.

 

These two V.W's were parked near us at the services on the M6 Toll road.

It certainly was a shame. We really wanted to have that first rest day around that time but we thought it was just too expensive to stat two nights there. Would love to go back to Montreux sometime.

 

 

Loads more pics to come
