As I write I’m on the shores of Lake Geneva and what a lucky chap I am. We are staying in the home of some old friends offering views to the Jura Mountains or the lake itself, depending on which side of the property you choose to be. It is a fabulous place to be.
Travel in Europe: Why driving is better than flying
Andrew Frankel has been racing cars for over 20 years and testing them for nearer to 30. He is senior contributing writer to both Autocar and MotorSport magazines, sits on the Car of the Year jury and was chief car tester for the Sunday Times for 15 years. He cites driving and writing as the only disciplines for which he has any talent and therefore considers himself vocationally employed. When he is not working he lives quietly in the Wye Valley with his family, a small and unimportant accumulation of cheap old cars and some sheep.
