Soulful driving

The makers of the Curves Magazine are well-known for their scenic road trips. Their latest adventure: The Mille Miglia of the Alps. ...

“ ’Are you crazy?’ is one of the more friendly comments on hearing of our plan to cross all the major passes of the Alps in four days. But what are you supposed to do when you‘re hopelessly addicted to the mountains – and you have limited time? Now is the time put together the ultimate tour from the countless roads, passes and traverses that can be covered on a long weekend. And anyway, you should set yourself goals in life to make sure it doesn‘t get boring. And while Reinhold Messner only set himself “seven summits“ to climb, with the exuberance of late adolescence, we decide to go for fourteen Alpine traverses, plus one road leading up a valley. The Mille Miglia of the Alps, as it were. With lots and lots of curves. And little sleep.”
