Day 2 RBR18

Day two of The Rust Bucket Rally - Done 

The alarm went off at 6am this morning which was an incredibly painful start to the day! We grab some breakfast, top up with oil (again!) and are on the road by 7am to start the 11 hour journey from Berlin to Lake Como.

A less drama filled day than yesterday - the first 4.5 hours are motorway miles but it wasn’t made any better by having to stop every hour to add more oil 
We were glad to turn off from the motorway and travel down Germany’s Romantic Road before crossing into Austria, Liechtenstein and then Switzerland!

En route we realise the car is actually getting better with its oil consumption - Cavs convinced he’s purchased a “self healing” car  I’m still on the fence...

The sun was beaming and the views as we came in to Italy and down to Como are literally breathtaking. The steep winding roads have got us buzzing for Mountain Day tomorrow! This is what it’s all about! 
Anyway, we arrived at our hotel at 7.40 with time for a shower and change before dinner and then well deserved drinks overlooking Lake Como.

Tomorrow we get a bit of a lie in, before heading to Dijon in France, through the mountains!....

Until then!
