If your up that way Michel,
It’s worth a trip.

The spa suites have massive spas right in the room, with the water pumped directly from the springs into the spa.

Or go down to the lakes with the rest of the guests.

A great way to relax after a day at the show.

We will also have to try Paula’s favourites also, as we have not been to those 2 places.

I'd be very happy for you to slip that Peugeot into your pocket Michel. Speaking of spas; we are off for annual holidays in France/Switzerland fairly soon. Can't wait.
Regards,
Brian

I believe this may be the Peugeot in question?

As for spas, Patrick; I am going for my annual overhaul - yes, but also in search of a new bitch. No: I am not using gansta-rap terminology; I mean one of the 4 legged variety.
Regards,
Brian

Well Michel, I have no answer for you. I think I may have been in hospital with pneumonia at the time, but otherwise, I have no possible explanation. As you well know, many times I had suggested to you to coincide part of your travel to afford the opportunity to attend the concours. Mind you though, come to think of it, you may have mentioned at some stage that you had attended, but that's as far as it goes. There are certainly some stunning cars featured in your photos and Sean is quite right when he talk about Italian cars and their styling.

I have dug up another video of the 2017 event taken by Petrolicious. I hope you don't mind if I tag it onto your thread. It just simply takes this event to another level again. BTW Patrick, I don't mind telling you how envious I am of all those places that you have visited. Absolutely stunning. The closest I can come to those areas is probably the Wolfgangsee in the Salzkammergut area. Here is my video - hope you guys enjoy it. Regards Styria

N.B. https://petrolicious.com/articles/ga...lla-deste-2017


My favourite, apart from many others - the Allemano 5 litre Maserati. A quiet favourite not drawing much attention - a silver Lagonda Rapide. I was going to buy one of those forty years ago. I still have a beautiful Lagonda Badge and some magazines. The price at the time was one thousand six hundred and fifty pounds !

This is another group of photos that perhaps takes you beyond the glitz and glamor of the actual exhibition day. I have nothing to add to the commentary provided by Petrolicious Regards Styria

Styria,
I couldn’t see any video, but the images were stunning.
Thank you for sharing
