This page shows my personal view of a trip from the Greece border to France in 1975.

Close to the Greek border with Yugoslavia I waited with my thumb out. A tiny 1000 cc Simca stopped and offered me a ride. It was the best ride of my life! 2000 km across Yugoslavia and Italy to southern France close to Spain.
The only problem was this meant that my first trip across Italy was an 18 hour all-night drive.
The first picture was in Slovenia, the second morning view in Northern Italy.

I spent a couple nights in Parmier. The next two photos were taken in the exact same spot.
