The Alps: Day 1, Iceland to the Alps via Frankfurt

Huge day! 4 am start, flight at 07:30 delayed 30 minutes to 08:00 landed in Frankfurt at 13:00 - took an hour to get car etc then 850 km drive to La Tuviere above Jarrier above St Jean de Maurienne. Very tired, arrived midnight!

When finally we arrived we sat up talking with Graeme and Debbie for a while - they had had a week in France already so we all had lots to talk about. But it was late and memory, even of the last few minutes, was already fading as the backs of our eyelids became the most important things in the world, temporarily.
