Flag of Liechtenstein  ,
Wednesday, June 29, 2011

Not satisfied with the Bernina Pass we set the van the challenge of the Julier Pass.
Again it was quite a drive and we put on a good show as we mixed in amongst the roaring classic and modern sports cars which were on a rally and had their fans lining the turns to take photos.  We tried to smile and wave for everyone and we're really looking forward to seeing the van in the next Lamborghini advert.                         This week's campsite is 7km from the capital, Vaduz.  It is situated up against the Mittagspitze which looks as if it might fall into the tent overnight if we're not careful.  There are fruit trees everywhere, a little stream, and in the wood, the local primary school's 'woodclassroom'.  For those needing the answer in the pub quiz tonight: Swiss francs and German language are the most common currency.   We were having a picnic by a stream in the wood the other day and were approached by what must have been Liechtenstein's entry for the Eurovision song contest.  He was a very enthusiastic man dressed in white trousers, shirt and shoes with long blond hair and he invited us to star in his movie about Liechtenstein.  After only a slight hesitation on his part when we explained we were from the UK we were invited to carry on doing exactly what we were doing while the filming began.  What will Eurovision think of Sam picking his nose and Rosie smearing boiled egg over her dress and legs?
