PREFACE
The following pages haven't been written to complement the hundreds of thousands of consultant books approximately Europe. lengthy, technical descriptions were shunned. An recreation has been made, fairly, to offer our own impressions of the outdated international from a motor automobile. Our itinerary missed the bigger towns whose contents were so good inventoried by way of Baedeker. The lifetime of the peasantry, the small cities seldom visited through American travelers, old fashioned villages unapproached by way of any railroad, the excellent roads and perspectives of the Tyrol, the crossing of the Alps over the snow-crowned Stelvio into Italy, the flight via northern Italy to Como, most adorable of the Italian lakes—such certain reports amid attractive surroundings appealed to us greater than the points of interest of the crowded city. We have been out for a motor ramble rather than a sight-seeing journey. Our path didn't keep on with totally the widely used highways of vacationer site visitors. From the summit of the Alps we have been to work out, a ways less than us, the valleys of picturesque Savoy. Then got here the lengthy, exciting descent into France via Provençe, that treasure land of Roman antiquity, throughout the Pyrenees, lifting their large boundaries among France and Spain, to Biarritz at the Atlantic. Spain was once ahead of us, the pastoral beauties of Limousin and Périgord, the châteaux of Touraine, and the cathedrals of Normandy.

An vital a part of our apparatus was once the Michelin advisor, which, with its handy association and wealth of priceless information regarding lodges and roads, rendered useful relief. Its maps have been so transparent that it was once seldom essential to retrace our direction. via them we deliberate our course and located our method throughout the diversified countries.

The author needs to thank Michelin & Co. of Paris, and Dr. Lehmann of the Benz corporation in Mannheim, Germany, for his or her information and suggestion. The documents of the London day-by-day Mail contributed necessary feedback. legal responsibility is additionally expressed to Mr. Charles Netcher, whose logic and motormanship have been crucial to the good fortune of the trip.

Russell Richardson.
