So getting on the ferry is much like paying at a toll booth.

Just about
Need to remember to buy additional equipment compulsory on the Continent such like extinquisher, headlamp beam converter kit, spare bulbs, warning triangle and (ridiculous) alcomat (7 pounds) to be up to the French law.

Got a basic kit. I never bother with headlight converters. Only tourists do that.

Umbrail Pass. (CH)(I)

I use "home made" stickers. Never bought recommended converters sold in shops.

In my opinion, additional equipment's requirements in the UK are too low. I just can't imagine driving without warning triangle and extinguisher onboard. I wouldn't feel safely driving on four different tyres either which is allowed in GB.

---------------

Another border crossing I passed recently.

Umbrail Pass. (CH)(I)







Actuall borderline.








Looking at from Stelvio Pass.

I use nothing at all on my headlights. Waste of time. Keep it at level 2 and nobody will be blinded.

Munt la Schera Tunnel. (CH)(I)

I'd wish having as simple as Bulgarian one in my country.

-------------
Very narrow, single file border crossing. I haven't crossed that one but as far as I know crossing the tunnel wasn't so easy before Switzerland joined Schengen. There were certain opening times and it was closed at night. Also, it's quite expensive to get on the other side. It costs 15 franks.

I think they mean Italian Merano which is not far away.

There is still short, about 1km, unpaved section of Umbrail left:

Müstair is a town in extreme eastern Switzerland and is not the same as Meran/Merano.

Yeah, I was surprised about gravel when I drove there. It's the highest mountain pass in Switzerland. Great pics!

So did I when I took the ferry from Calais to UK. The easiest and cheapest way.

Border BG-MK: Why is Bulgaria written in English and not in the local language (as is usual on these signs)?

I don't think that any British people actually bother to do that.

Yeah Chris, you go through what is basically a toll booth and onto a ferry

It would be like this: БЪЛГАРИЯ. Many foreigners wouldn't understand Cyrillic inscription.
