! You just have to love mountains. Interestingly I haven't yet driven between Tolmezzo and Palmanova, always exited the motorway to take the road to Cortina d'Ampezzo. (not for Cortina, but that's what I'd always do (puke) before finally reaching it ) Those tunnel pics blew me away, David, how did you manage to shoot them so well?

And a question for Italians: how come there's a town called "Jesolo", when there's no letter "j" in the Italian alphabet? (at least I think so)

P.S. for David: we're ready for more.

Perhaps there'll be a little "Strada del Sole" in very early Jan...

Did you like the Austrian pics as well?

Gotta make a trip there once. And make sure it'll be in the middle of season, so I won't have to speak Italian.

That'd be cool of course; how's with the dyke to Venice though? Did you take boat?

Aber natürlich, haven't I made myself clear by now? How couldn't I like pics of a mountainous land with great motorways? Of course they are even nicer in real.

Sorry, but that's all... I left Vienna at 11.30, right after my uni course (Integrated Language and Study Skills, English), so when I arrived in VCE, it was already dark.

^ By night, even better. Yah, I knew I'd fallen for it when I'd taken boat; it was romantic tho.

photos are fabolous! what made me laugh are "men at work". couldn't they write "road works"?! or maybe they are just notifying that you can hear "downunder" at km 93

That's what always makes me laugh in the US, the "Men at work" sign...

Very good pictures, David. I thought you would take also picture of junction at Pontebba, which is nothing less than spectacular, but you would need to drive on old road.

Maybe someone will take the picture, when going for skiing to Nassfeld.

So... the explanation is simple, read with care:


I don't know

Wait... I think in 'ancient' Italian (the so called volgare used by Dante) 'J' was used in place of 'I' in some case, probably always if it was at the begginning of a word

A very interesting bridge! Do you have any photos of the widened part of the A4 (Milano - Bergamo) with all the new bridges and viaducts? They are fantastic! (Cordioli & co. can't get out of my head )

Driving over the Calatrava's bridges in Reggio Emilia is truly amazing...

This is a pic of the stretch from Parco Nord looking to Cinisello (thanks to Milanomia)
