This one has only 14.000km driven so it's a good one.
Diesel automatic, just ride a bicycle is faster

can you just keep Italian plates on it? grow a moustache and nobody will question you

Nothing like a huge slip lane on a two lane road, with priority over left turning traffic.

Today we had rain almost the whole day. We had warmer days in middle March this year.
In 2013 I took a short swim in the Adriatic sea on the 1st May. Temperature outside was probably around 26-27°C, but the water was still too cold.

Not a bad drive on a Sunday. Almost no truck traffic, no holiday traffic yet.

Torino-Bruxelles is quite a nice ride.

I'd do it this way


EDIT: does anyone know how to make the New Google Maps show the travel data on the upper left corner instead of mashed with the route display?

I hate the new Google Maps. It's not only slow, it sometimes doesn't work properly, especially with dragging routes, or changing the starting or ending point. When you zoom out, drop it on a point on a motorway, it often doesn't snap to the nearest visible road at that scale, but to a local street nearby you can't possibly see at that zoom level.

This is less relevant for France than in Germany, right?

Trucks are banned from driving on Sundays in Italy, Germany, France, Switzerland, Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia and Hungary according to research I did a while ago.
