Have fun.

fyi - (I have been informed)
If your going near Fort Central the tunnel underneath (Tende tunnel) on the main road is having a second bore drilled thru, this is causing major disruption in the area, also the switchback road on the french side from the top down is closed temporarily.

Hope that you all have a safe journey, but sorry to tell you that I have just seen the forecast and it is not too good for the coming week, then the weekend will get worse in the south east of France.
