If you only have 2 days, simply visit the north of France, Bretagne or Normandie - driving to the Alpes will be a marathon and you'll spend more time driving than enjoying the locals. l=Oo\________/oO=l l:OolΞΞΞΞΞΞΞloO:l

All set for our trip from Cornwall to France tomorrow - I could have taken the Freelander, god knows it would have been a darn sight cheaper!

Thanks for all your help guys.

Done the trips to the Alps in a Freelander 1 and Freelander 2, as well as the FFRR. There's only one way to do it....in a big torquey diesel V8. More space inside and just effortless.

I know how you felt!! As Stan says, it could have been like mine. Censored

You must be in France by now. Did you make the rest of the trip to the tunnel without problem?

Enjoy your trip. Thumbs Up John

All went well with the tunnel, although delayed for over 2 hours so was knackered by the time we got to the other side and had to kip in the car for a bit.

Now kinda lost in Belgium, all part of the fun!
