me at the Stelvio pass - officially the best driving road in the world according to jeremy clarkson.
Cliffy and I drove over to the Nurburgring, i nearly had a nervous breakdown after letting Cliffy have a go in my UNINSURED life savings. I hated every second of it - and then i had to film him. I can't wait to thrash his car and enter bends at 100mph downhill.
It was a bad day to give up smoking i can tell you.
i shall have to get hold of a copy of Cliffys diary that gives a day by day account, but it will need a great deal of editing to take all the swear words out.
Anyway we then travelled down the Rhine, through Bavaria, over the Alps, through Austria, in to Italy then down through Milan to end up in the Casino at Monte Carlo - where i actually won and left!! Actually i lost a few hundred quid and then got really drunk on beer that cost ten pound a pint and then drew out a load more money to seek revenge... luckily cliffy used the force and i got lucky with number 24 coming in twice.
After monte Carlo we went along the coast to Nice, Cannes, Marseille getting very sunburnt with the roof down, then up back to calais driving through Lyons, Dijon and the very very very rude champagne region or Reims and Epernay where we nearly assaulted all the rude french bar staff.
many many many funny stories to tell but it will have to be over a Beer
