The lovely Betsy recently tagged me to post my 6th of the 6th - it is a picture tag. I am suppose to find my 6th picture folder and find the 6th picture and post it; with a short description.
As you all know I love tags and I always accept the challenge.;)) Therefore, keep them coming.;)
And as always, anyone can feel free to be tagged by me.;)
So, in my 6th folder, the 6th picture was this one:
The picture was taken in March 2006, while driving to the French Riviera. It depicts the main road crossing the Alps, close to the Swiss-Italian Border, in proximity of the San Bernardino Pass. Although eventually we opted for the San Bernardino Tunnel, rather than the pass, which might have been still full with snow and impossible to cross.
Nevertheless, even though crossing by tunnel, the road took us up to an elevation of about 1700m, through some of the most beautiful parts of Europe. Although the Riviera can be reached by many other, much shorter routes, the one leading through the Alps down to Genoa in Italy, following the coast of the Mediterranean while passing Monte Carlo in Monaco, is by far the most breathtaking route one can imagine. The fact that we got to pass close to three different seasons on the way down, adds even more magic to the whole experience; an early spring in Germany, late winter crossing the Alps and what would be a very lovely early summer (in Scandinavian terms)
once reaching Liguria, the coastal part of Northern Italy.
