New Member Going on Road Trip

Hi,

I've been using the SLK World AMG forums as a guest prior to buying my SLK 55 AMG and thought it was only fair to join before embarking on a European Road Trip, so that I can hopefully give a little back.

Really excited about taking the car on a 3 week tour, leaving from London on Friday with the following planned stops;

Champagne, France
Monaco - with a view to driving Col de Turini
Lake Garda, Italy - Various mountain roads
Stelvio Pass
St Anton, Austria (14km Arlberg tunnel appeals...)
Paris

Keep a look out for our 'Tunnel Hunters' sticker on the deflector if you're going to be in any of the areas (attached).

Cheers,

Garrod-55AMG

Welcome from Devon.

Thats some trip, would like a debrief when you get back and some pic's.

Watch out for the speed camera's and dont get caught with a "speed trap" monitor as the French Police have a nice collection already from us Brits!!!!

Sounds like a great trip. Just you or a group going?
We stayed in the Champagne area, just west of Reims. Lovely country; loved Picardie (lots of signifigance to Canadians in WW1). Post fotos along the way if you can! Safe driving.

Btw .. there's a Foie Gras farm just outside of Trelou, and there are 6 Champagneries in the village.
