Our trip to Aix les Bain in the foothills of the French Alps combined superb driving routes with a relaxed itinerary - both made even more enjoyable by warm sunny weather for almost the whole week. We were 19 people, including two couples from the USA, driving in ten cars (including a late model MGF which managed to keep up most of the time). We crossed from UK into France by train from Folkstone on 7 June, returning from Calais on 14 June.Read More
The Annual General Meeting of the Giulietta Register was held on 2 April 2017 at The Barns Hotel in Bedford, UK. It was fine weather and top-down enjoyment for the many members attending in their spiders.

The Chairman, Richard Wigley, and all members of the Committee were unanimously re-elected for another term, to the relief of others present. However, in accepting their re-election, Don MacLean, Editor of the Giuliettaletta, and Tony Ives, UK Events Organiser, announced that they would be stepping down during the coming year after serving in their respective capacities for several years.Read More

We returned to UK on the ferry from Santander. Below are some pictures taken along the route.Read More
