It had been years that I had this trip in mind, and only now, after having finished it, having visited beautiful places, having admired wonderful landscapes, having traveled through thrilling roads and having breathed the air of the Arctic Circle, only now have I understood the why? I have longed for it, and only now can I say with certainty that? a journey that a camper driver, sooner or later, must face at least once in their life! Like all trips, especially this one, it must be planned and planned a long time in advance as regards the stops for the stop, the places to visit, and then you cross 6 different countries so rules to follow, local laws, modalities? of motorway tolls, in short, all there is ?? to know, why? then once on the road, time to read up? very little.

1 day

I would start by saying that on this trip we purposely avoided the Legoland park in Denmark, the Santa Claus village in Rovaniemi in Finland and the North Cape. Our destinations were, the Arctic Circle, the Lofoten Islands and the Norwegian fjords.
28/7/2019 We left Turin on July 28 at 6 am, in view of the Swiss crossing and knowing that their tolerances in terms of weights are more? restricted, I weighed the camper at the public scale of Caselle just before leaving, 35 without driver with full water and diesel, can you? leave!! We pass through Chiasso, we cross all of Switzerland, we take the road that will lead us? to the San Bernardino pass, which climbs up to 2065 meters above sea level, offering beautiful views among small stretches of water, lakes and pine forests. We continue until we leave Switzerland, we enter Austria where we should only travel about 30 km, we do it on the state road to avoid paying the Austrian vignette. We enter Germany at the height of Lake Constance where for? we will stop for a stage only on the return of our journey. We are finally on the famous German highways that this time will prove to be a real agony as they are literally DEVASTATED by construction sites in progress of entities? important, do the signs preceding each construction site indicate completion dates around 2020? 2021, in about a thousand km of highway google map indicated 14 construction sites, so before setting off, evaluate the route well.
We arrive in the evening in Rothenburg ob der Tauber and we stop for the night at the P3 car park at the following coordinates: N 49.381900, E 10.188880 Does the car park have the possibility? to load and unload and? very convenient to the center of Rothenburg even on foot.
Rothenburg ob der Tauber (Rothenburg above the Tauber) is located in northern Bavaria,? entirely surrounded by walls of the? 300 and? 400 for the most part passable on foot, walking through its streets you can admire elegant houses and facades made with different styles and colors, balconies full of flowers and many shops with iron signs that protrude on the Street. The city? is located along the? romantic road? (Romantische Stra? E), a 370 km long road that runs from south to north, to visit well even only the most important places. important and more? beautiful along this road it would take at least a week. Can you? travel comfortably by car, but c? also a beautiful cycle path, 460 km long, which makes you discover the landscapes of this part of Germany even better. It could certainly be a possible future trip, but for now, given that our destination? the great north, we return to the camper to have dinner and plan the next day. Km covered 685

2 day

29/7/2019 We leave at 6 in the morning towards Hamburg, the endless queues caused by the construction sites on the 7 continue, we arrive in Hamburg at 16 after having traveled 585 km We stop at the Wohnmobilhafen Hamburg parking area at the following coordinates: 53.543290, 10.025702 under the subway bridge and in the city? but I think it is the most? convenient for visiting the center which? reachable quite quickly by bike, equipped with showers and toilets with an easy access and very functional camper service area, we paid 25? including electricity, for one night. Hamburg? a world trade center,? famous for its art museums and lively neighborhoods but? also famous for the red light district where the Beatles played their first concert in the 60s. Particular ? also the district of the old warehouses where the goods were stored, declared in 2015 a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Traditional? the fish market with hundreds of stalls where fresh produce, souvenirs, clothing and street food are sold.

3 day

30/7/2019 The day after we leave calmly at 12.30 after having made another lap around Hamburg as today's stage does not include many km. We then leave towards Puttgarden from where we will embark to reach Denmark. Do we board and pay 131? with campers of 7 meters and 2 people, campers up to 6 meters pay less. The journey? short, we disembark in Denmark and cross it without stopping, then we will stop on the return journey, we head straight towards the famous Oresund bridge, 16 km of which 4 of tunnels under the sea and 12 of bridge, which connects Denmark to Sweden, we can't wait to be on the bridge !!
We finally arrived on the Oresund Strait that separates Denmark from Sweden, we cross it thanks to a unique work of its kind, the Oresund bridge which with its 16 km (4 of submarine tunnel and 12 of bridge) allows us to arrive in Sweden without taking any ship, go through it? was the first real strong emotion of this trip,? also for the price, the cost of the bridge for our 7-meter vehicle? been 120? for one way only. We are finally in the Scandinavian peninsula, in southern Sweden, precisely in Scania, for the night we stop in Malm ?, parked on the street, we arrived around 19 we only have time for a quick lap. Malm? ? a city? small and welcoming that offers countless quality restaurants and bistros? and excellent cafes. Malm? has it invested heavily in the city project? sustainable and? at the forefront in Scandinavia.

4 day

Are we leaving at 6.30am from Malm? to reach Stockholm, we will arrive at 15 after 623 km, we look for the Langholmens camper area at the following coordinates: N 59.320120, E 18.031480 where we intended to stop, but? full, we then parked in a parking lot along the sea at the following coordinates N 59.326600, E 18.047300 at a cost of 150 Swedish kronor which is equivalent to 14? for 24 hours.

5 day

Today, the first real sunny day since we left, we dedicate it to Stockholm, the Swedish capital, we will use our bikes to get around, a perfect means of transport in these countries as there are cycle paths? everywhere. Stockholm? a city? medieval but projected into the future,? built on 14 islands connected by 57 bridges,? a tour through the streets of Gamla Stan, one of the best preserved historical centers in Europe, is a must. here which the capital? was founded in 1252
Stockholm hosts more? of 70 museums, covering a wide mix of themes and attractions as well as showcasing the heritage of the city? in all its glory. Not to be missed ? Skansen, the largest open-air museum ancient world, with houses and farms from all over the country that reproduce Sweden in miniature,? a unique place where history blends with the present, where Swedish traditions and craftsmanship are still relevant today. Entering Skansen means entering other eras: this open-air museum has made us discover how people lived in Sweden in different historical moments and in houses from various parts of the country.

6 day

IS? when it's time to leave Stockholm, there are still many kilometers to get to the Arctic Circle, let's make a quick stop at the camper area? Langholmens? at the following coordinates: N 59.320120, E 18.031480 to load and unload, everything costs us 3? paid by card, in Denmark, Sweden and Norway we have not withdrawn even a cent of the local currency as in these countries you pay everything, absolutely everything by card, even to go to the bathroom at any shopping center? smears? to pay one euro. So we leave around 9 am and head north, we arrive at Umea around 19 pm after traveling 900 km, we decide to park on the street but after some? Details? that I didn't like very much, one of these? it was there that I narrowly avoided the snatching of my camera, small inconveniences that can happen on a trip. We leave then and after an hour we stop in a parking area for campers, populated by campers and therefore more? quiet, but unfortunately I have not marked the coordinates.

7 day

We leave in the morning, do we make a quick stop in the city? of Lulea and then leave again and visit the village of Gammelstad. Gammelstad? a charming parish village, with its stone church, its medieval streets, and more? of 400 red wooden houses,? been declared a World Heritage Site? of the UNESCO and? the pi? largest and best preserved example of a parish village in Sweden. We leave this beautiful village, we head towards Overkalix but just before reaching the village we pass in front of a museum of open-air tractors owned by? by a very passionate collector named Holgers, there are about 200 tractors all in perfect working order. Once in overkalix we decide to park in a parking lot adjacent to a campsite, obviously asking for permission. Let's have dinner in complete tranquility? with a beautiful sun that colored red all around.
Around 22 pm, two cars with dark glasses are placed, attached to the front of the camper, one of them did not even have a rear license plate, they remained there with the engine running and the radio at high volume for about an hour. I don't know if it was just a stunt by some idiot or the campsite (to which we had asked permission among other things) did not like our presence there, the fact remains that at 23 pm, after the two cars have decided to move away , we decide a? change program? and we leave in search of a safe place to sleep. We are now in full Swedish Lapland and at this point we decide to bring forward the entry into the Arctic Circle compared to the next day as we had planned. At midnight on August 4th 2019 after 3433 km and 7 days of travel we entered the Arctic Circle !!!
The exact point where we entered? on the road that goes from Overkalix to Kiruna precisely at the following coordinates: 66.551131, 22.332871 but there are obviously other roads, and in all? well marked the exact point. We spent our first night in the Arctic Circle in a parking lot for campers and trucks at these coordinates: 67.105667, 20.898879 equipped with heated services and chemical toilet drain but without manhole for gray water and without possibility? loading water, the temperature of this night? been of -0.3? finally the great north !!!

8 day

In the morning we leave, the management? that of the Lofoten Islands, but we head first towards Kiruna and from there we reach Jukkasj? rvi, a town of little more? of 500 inhabitants which? a real dip in Swedish Lapland, this resort? ? became famous mainly for the presence of the first gravel hotel in the world, but to visit, in addition to the hotel, c ?? also the Jukkasj? rvi Kirka, a small church located at the end of the village,? among the pi? ancient churches of Lapland, built entirely of wood. We also spent a few hours at S? Mi Siida an open-air museum that reconstructs a small Sami settlement. The Sami are an indigenous population living in an area that extends from the Swedish Arctic Circle to Norway, from Finland to Russia. The visit to this museum ends with a moment when you find yourself surrounded by reindeer and, if you have taken the bag of moss and lichen at the entrance, you can experience the thrill of feeding them.
After the visit to this village, we resume the journey to the Lofoten islands.

9 day

Finally after 9 days of travel we have arrived in the much desired Lofoten Islands, these beautiful islands are located in the waters of the Norwegian Sea inside the Arctic Circle. How do you put a wheel on these islands, do you immediately understand that you have reached a wonderful place, their beauty? impressive, the landscape? made up of majestic mountains, deep fjords, colonies of squawking seabirds and long surfing beaches, all made even better. characteristic by red wooden houses that seem almost to have been painted the day before. The evocative landscape of these islands has left us breathless, and has repaid us for the many kilometers traveled in this journey on roads, often, even difficult ones.
We visited Kabelvag a small fishing village, then passed by Henningsv? R, the most famous fishing station in Lofoten also called? The Venice of the North? where in winter the biggest cod in the world can be caught. Henningsv? R has been able to preserve all the charm of the natural and original environment, then we passed through Nusfjord, an ancient fishing village that does not have the typical characteristics of a village or village, since it is a small village. not ? inhabited by a community? stable. The decision was taken in 1975 by UNESCO which, in agreement with the government of Norway, transformed? Nusfjord in a city-museum, in order to preserve the typical structure of fishing villages. And finally we pass by Flakstad.
We stopped for the night in a parking lot overlooking the sea, at the following coordinates: 68.103693, 13.283607, the place? wonderful, the parking? equipped with heated wc, fairly clean and well kept but you can not? unload the chemical toilet, adjacent to the parking lot, c ?? also a fairly basic campsite from what I have noticed,? Skagen Camping ?. Between the campsite and the car park there is ?? a beautiful large white beach.

10 day

We leave the next morning for Reine, we stop in a rest area in the village at the following coordinates: N 67.912000, E 13.074800 Reine? a small fishing village nestled between the Norwegian fjords, north of the Arctic Circle, one of the most? beautiful of the Lofoten islands, 300 inhabitants, red wooden houses painted with cod blood and natural pigments, or yellow, dyed with the vegetable color of the flowers
If you are a walker you must not miss the walk to Reinebringen which, through a challenging path of about 1600 steps and the last piece of steep path and on a crumbly ground, you reach 400 meters in height from where you can? enjoy a breathtaking view that repays the efforts made to reach the top.
This ? On the last day in the Lofoten Islands, tomorrow we will set sail to return to the mainland and continue the journey along the wonderful Norwegian fjords.

11 day

We start from Reine to reach nearby Moskenes from where we will embark to reach Bodo, the route? 3.5 hours of navigation, and the cost of the ticket for our camper? of 218 ?. We will cover 354 km of state road, we will see the landscape change more? times, we will exit the Arctic Circle and stop for the night only in Laksforsen at a very quiet parking lot near a waterfall and at the following coordinates: 65.625346, 13.291814

12 day

At 8 we leave for Trondheim, the third city? pi? great of Norway. We get back on the E6 to cover the last interminable and tiring 373 km. The road, like the day before,? a succession of works in progress for the construction of the new road pi? wide, bottlenecks, rain, lane changes and dirt tracks. all this is seasoned with a large number of Norwegian trucks traveling at high speed. crazy, and crossing them in the most? tight, you have to be very careful, an error of a few centimeters can? cost the side of the gutted camper. We arrive in the city, we immediately load and unload at the camper service of a parking area at the following coordinates: N 63.438240, E 10.420543, very large and equipped with electricity.
Finished loading and unloading, we decide for? to stop for the night in a mixed parking for cars and campers, at the following coordinates: N 63.426246, E 10.382479 without services but much more? near the center. The cost was 2.50? the hour 25? per day from 8 to 20 km today 373 Trondheim routes,? the third city? for the size of Norway, meanwhile, let's say that the city? is located in the center of one of the most? fascinating sites of Norway, the Trondheimsfjorden. Bakklandet instead? the picturesque old town, crossing the Ponte della Citt? Old, (Gamble Bybro), characteristic for its red portals reminiscent of the Japanese style, you can admire the Nidaros cathedral.

13 day

We leave from Trondheim, today we head towards one of the 10 most? beautiful in the world, the? Atlantic road ?, which through various bridges and rocks almost on the surface of the water, joins together several islets, and which starts south from Vevang and ends northwards at Karvag. This road becomes very dangerous in the presence of storms or strong winds, when the waves crash on the carriageways, making transit very difficult but also very scenic and emotional. Follow it, for us,? was another beautiful and unforgettable emotion of this trip. Coming from the north we should have traveled it from Karvag to Vevang, but considering the fact that to reach Karvag we would have had to take a couple of ferries, we preferred to go up to Vevang, and travel it from south to north, we traveled there 5 times to do videos and photographs with different perspectives and also to better enjoy the landscape.
But are we leaving for the city? of Alesund, one of the most? visited by tourists in Norway, and therefore we cannot miss it. The idea? that of stopping in a rest area by the sea and in the city center, but upon our arrival, at 21, we find it full, nearby c ?? a campsite? Volsdalen Camping? at the following coordinates: 62.469855, 6.198496, and we take the last available place, the campsite? nice, showers and bathrooms are a little bit, and the showers go with the coin, as services, I've seen worse, however, having the camper and having to stay only one night, goes more? what good, the night? cost 30? including light, the camper service area? functional easily accessible. The connection to the city,? guaranteed by a pedestrian street that starts in front of the campsite but I think it can also be traveled by bike, leads to the city center? in about half an hour on foot, we did not use it why? in the morning we returned to the rest area that we had found full the night before. Km covered today 382.

14 day

Upon awakening we try again to look for a place at the rest area in the village near the center at the following coordinates: N 62.476810, E 6.160472, we can also find it with a sea view. The rest area? pretty, very close to the center, on the sea, has toilets and showers not for a fee but accessible with a code on the payment ticket, cost 25? all day or 2.5? per hour including electricity. The camper service area for loading and unloading? spacious, practical and functional. Parked the camper, we can finally dedicate ourselves to a day of relaxation, rest and rub in the streets of Alesund. The city? of Alesund extends between seven different small islands connected to each other and from its small ports, every day, numerous fishing boats set sail for the seas of the Atlantic Ocean, so much so that the city? ? known as the Norwegian capital of fish. Walking through the streets of the center you will come across buildings that refer to an elegant Art Nouveau style.

15 day

Departing from Alesund around 8 in the morning, we focus on Geiranger and its famous fjord, the kilometers to be covered today are only 100 but very tortuous, along the road we are obliged, as always, to continuous stops to take or photograph corners of the panorama beautiful. To enter Geiranger we must take the famous? Road of the Eagles? a steep road with numerous hairpin bends that offers, to those who travel it, splendid views of the Geiranger fjord from different angles and heights.
Once in Geiranger we take a place at the Geiranger camping at the following coordinates: 62.100589, 7.205675 where we find a place on the shore of the fjord. The camping ? nice, all flat on grass, decent bathrooms, spacious and easy to access camper service area, we paid for a night 37? of which 5? for choosing the pitch facing the fjord and 2? of current. Sar? also one of the most? small but the Geiranger fjord? among the most? of Norway? in fact of great scenic beauty,? in fact one of the fjords that UNESCO has included in the list of places of the World Heritage of Humanity. Stopping a day? it was very nice.

16 day

We start from Geiranger our journey continues towards Bergen but for the size of our camper we do not recommend the only road that goes south, we are therefore obliged to take the umpteenth ship in the direction of Hellesylt which will reveal itself? for? a small and pleasant one and a half hour cruise along the fjord, with explanations in your own language, during the whole journey, price for two people and a 7 m camper: 147? We arrive in Berghen around 20 pm, the rest area in front of the ice rink at the following coordinates: N 60.354543, E 5.359813,? full, but still continuing 300 meters c ?? a parking lot without services but very spacious, at the following coordinates: N 60.351901, E 5.360472 for a fee but when we were there the machine to pay was broken. At 100 mt c ?? the stop of tram 1 which takes you to the city center in 15 minutes, you can buy tickets at the stop itself using your credit card.

17 day

Bergen? the second city? pi? great of Norway and? known as the capital of the fjords, needless to say, too? declared World Heritage of Humanity? of Unesco. Very characteristic and not to be missed? the neighborhood of bryggen, made up of colorful wooden houses arranged in a row in front of the port where inside you can? stroll through its alleys. It rises on the eastern shore of the city fjord, a real postcard landscape, its name in Norwegian means jetty or pier. The fish market? one of the most? characteristic of Bergen, always very crowded, you can go there every day and you will always find fresh fish to buy raw or already? cooked in many ways, from salmon to whale meat to unsurpassed Norwegian herring.

18 day

We start from Berghen to go to Oslo, today's stage will be? challenging, 475 km all of curves and with very long tunnels, but along the way we make a short stop in Flam one of the most? spectacular of Norway, a small village of about five hundred residents located in the middle of the Norwegian fjords. Famous? the Flam railway, the Flamsbana, which, with a spectacular route, thanks to its difference in height of 900 meters in a few km? considered among the most? steep slopes of Europe and crosses different climates and landscapes. But once again after the stop, the road alternates between works in progress and long tunnels, in fact we had to go through the L? Rdal tunnel, which is the closest road tunnel. long of the world, for more? of 20 minutes we covered its 24.5 km. There
gallery has no emergency exits, but? constantly monitored by an operations center and numerous security systems. There are photographic inspections and the counting of all vehicles entering and exiting the tunnel, but the particularity? of this gallery? the presence of 3 large caves along the path where you can stop, which have a special lighting that recalls the colors of the sunrise, are blue, yellow and green. We arrived in Oslo at 19.30pm, stopped at the Sjolyst? Bobilparkering? at the following coordinates: N 59.919050, E 10.677060? open from 7 to 23 hours when c ?? always the attendant, the price 30? per day, you pay at the machine also with card but be careful, it does not accept Maestro cards, very convenient and easily accessible loading / unloading area, toilets and showers are inside containers. The center of Oslo? easily reachable by bike with the cycle path that passes in front of the entrance to the camper area, you arrive in 10/15 min. The km traveled today are 463.

19 day

The capital of Norway Oslo, is located in the southern part of the country, inside the wonderful Oslofjord,? a city? very green. The Oslo fjord? composed of about 40 islands and over half? of the city? ? covered by forests and parks. We go around Oslo all morning and early afternoon, for our tastes don't we? served stop over, then we decide at 17 to leave for the next stage, now today we leave the beautiful Norway and return to Sweden, now we are already? in the return phase.
At 17 pm we set off again for G? Teborg, unfortunately we have to say goodbye to beautiful Norway, a peaceful journey, we traveled 300 km. We find a place in the camper parking area at the following coordinates: 57.702727, 12.035481 very quiet place, equipped with a loading / unloading area but not c ?? the manhole on the ground for the discharge of gray water, so you must be equipped with a collection tank and download where the chemical toilet is unloaded, the price was: 12h about 15? ? 24h about 23 ?, km traveled today 309.

20 day

Day visit to the city? of G? teborg, second city? of Sweden, G? teborg was born on the mouth of the G? ta? lv river that crosses it forming a fascinating jagged fjord that allows it a splendid view of the North Sea. IS? pleasant to get lost in the streets of the haga district, one of the most? ancient of G? teborg.

21 day

We leave for the next stop, Copenhagen, this time, instead of with the Oresund bridge, we choose to cross the sea tongue that separates Sweden from Denmark, by ferry. We then headed to the port of Helsingborg from which we embarked to disembark in Helsingor in Denmark, for our 7m camper. did we pay 103? only about twenty euros less than the bridge. Once in Copenhagen we stopped at the rest area near the marina, at the following coordinates: N 55.71797, E 12.58925, convenient to the center by bike, in front of it passes the cycle path that leads to the city center, the rest area? equipped with electricity, taps for water loading with very long rubber hose to reach your camper, obtaining a service card instead at the same machine where you pay for the parking, you can? take advantage of the black water discharge at dedicated toilets and clean, spacious and heated toilets and showers, the shower? for a fee using the same service card, I have not seen manholes for draining gray water, so I recommend that you have a roller tank with you which is very useful in these cases.
Copenhagen? without a doubt a city? to visit by bike as? one of the cities? pi? suitable for cyclists, it is certainly worth a visit for a couple of days, and in any case, although Copenhagen is very large, the main attractions are concentrated a short distance from each other, so much so that, in addition to cycling,? It is possible to visit them all on foot. The symbol of Copenhagen? the Little Mermaid, the statue at the entrance to the port of Copenhagen and taken from Andersen's fable. Although over the years it has overcome various acts of vandalism, the Little Mermaid retains a magical charm.

22 day

Day around Copenhagen.
We visited the capital of Denmark entirely in the rain.

23 day

Leaving Copenhagen, we now head towards Ribe and take the umpteenth road section of this journey that causes us a strong emotion, the 18 KM long Great Belt bridge. We arrive in Ribe and we park for the night in the caravan park at the following coordinates: N 55.324800, E 8.757400, the parking? free and with loading and unloading and toilet, near the historic center even on foot. Km traveled today 339. Ribe? the city? pi? ancient city of Denmark, located on the Jutland peninsula,? certainly one of the most? beautiful d? Europe. Its alleys are full of people and? very pleasant to walk inside, but? in the evening that the city? unleashes all its charm as the night watchman begins his patrol, singing the traditional songs to warn the citizens that? it's time to go to sleep.

24 day

We start from Ribe and also say goodbye to Denmark, we stop in Travemunde, a beautiful town? German seaside that overlooks the Baltic Sea, its beaches are wide, the promenade very nice and luckily we found a beautiful sunny day, we stopped at a parking lot at the following coordinates: N 53.975840, E 10.877830, where behind c ?? also a parking area for campers complete with loading and unloading and electricity.
After a few hours we move to nearby Lübeck, we stop in a camper area at the following coordinates: N 53.895420, E 10.710580, convenient to the center by bike, it seems instead that it takes about 30 minutes on foot, equipped with wc and coin showers , nice and clean, c ?? the water loading area (it needs your own rubber hose to attach to the tap) and c ?? the grid on the ground for draining gray water, but not? It is possible to download the chemical toilet, then make your own autonomy accounts, to pay you pay inside the booling.

25 day

Day around Lübeck.
In 1987, UNESCO included the historic center of Lübeck in the list of cultural and environmental heritage of the world, in fact? very nice and cared for. Lübeck? also defined the city? of marzipan. in the center of Lübeck you can indulge yourself in the delights of the historic Café? Niederegger German confectionery company with a centuries-old tradition, famous not only for its high quality sweets, especially for the production of marzipan, a real? Paradise for diabetics? and of course we wanted to try its delights, in short, if you are passing through, you will certainly appreciate a stop in Lübeck.

26 day

At 6 am we leave and leave the beautiful city? from Lübeck to the last stop of this beautiful journey, Lindau on Lake Constance. Today we expect 890 km devastated by works in progress, we will take 12 hours to travel this route, they will also make us leave the motorway, we do not know if due to an accident or for work in progress, we will start following a car transporter that seemed to know the made his own and making secondary roads through remote villages and jumping two entrances to the motorway, full of vehicles lined up and totally stopped, we arrived at the first free motorway entrance to be able to continue our road. We arrive in Lindau around 18 pm, we stop in a rest area at the following coordinates: N 47.558610, E 9.700470, the rest area? for a fee 20? / 24 hours, ? equipped with toilet and equipped area for loading and unloading, free gray water discharge, for a fee black water discharge and water loading. The area ? don't worry, we saw the police pass a couple of times. Behind the area, there is a cycle / pedestrian path that leads to the center, we had bikes and by bike it took 10 minutes, we didn't walk it but it seems that it takes about twenty minutes.

27 day

We had dedicated the twenty-seventh day of travel to the return but at 6 in the morning, time when? once the alarm rang, instead of preparing for departure, we decided to stay one more day? in Lindau.
Lindau? among the pi? renowned resorts holiday resort of Germany for its particular location:? in fact situated on an island on Lake Constance connected to the mainland by two bridges. The main street? composed of a series of houses from the 500s with colorful colors and elegant shops. Lindau not? just a stage along a journey, or a location? to visit if you are passing through, Lake Constance? certainly an interesting traveling destination for a few days trip.

28 day

And here ends this wonderful journey that led us to discover the great north of Europe, and to finish off with some information on the journey. Travel ? lasted 27 +1 days, we covered 8700km in 128 hours of driving, we spent 1400? of fuel.

As for the telephone coverage, all the countries crossed, except Switzerland, are covered by European roaming so you have the same tariff plan that you would have in Italy except for data, be careful why? according to your telephone operators, the giga available in European countries could be much lower than those you have in Italy (Inquire) For Switzerland, however, if you do not have a tariff plan that somehow covers it, I recommend
It is strongly recommended that you disable data traffic and do not make or receive calls for the 300 km you will travel inside.
The motorway tolls were as follows: Switzerland: Motorway vignette valid from January to December of the current year. a month before and a month after 36?
Austria: for 30 km of travel, we traveled the state road without payment
