(visited by Captain Peter)

12-Jul-2004 -- The time has come to go back to my home in Sicily. This time I decided not to take the shortest way, but to make a deviation via southern France.

At 09:00 I left western Austria and crossed the border to Switzerland. I passed Zurich and Bern, and at Geneva I entered into France, where I had to zigzag on various motorways in direction Annecy. Annecy is situated in a glaciar origin basin, on the shore of Lake of Annecy, opens through the Alps an itineraty between the mountains and the different valleys leading to Italy. The city of Annecy has a history that goes back to the neolithic period. First Genevoise, then Spanish, Sicilian, Sardian, Annecy was annexed to France in 1860.

At Annecy I took the motorway exit nr. 17 (Annecy North), took the Department road D508 in direction Bellegarde-sur-Valserine, and 3 km after La Balme-de-Sillingy I turned left in direction Mesigny.

On the D7, just freshly paved, I went up in direction Sallenôves and I parked in the Route des Raffours, just at the "La Tatte" Hotel, which seemed closed to me.

From this place the confluence is only a 50 metres off in a grass field.

I enclose the views to North, Northeast, East, South and West.

Then I drove back in direction Annecy and took the motorway further South and Southwest in direction Romans, in order to reach the next confluence.
