We went to Colmar for the weekend driving via the San Gottardo tunnel. We had a delightful time there staying in Turckheim and visiting villages near Colmar, as well as visiting the city itself.

Unfortunately, on our return to Italy we were caught in a snow storm before the San Gottardo tunnel, and spent 7 hours blocked on the highway. We eventually managed, with the help of Italians also blocked, to get off the highway, follow a parallel road to a later entry point and arrive home after a trip of 12 hours. Usual time for the trip is 5 hours. Others who did not manage to exit from the highway (A2) spent 12 hours unable to move.

A new experience for me. Born in Brisbane I was 20 before I saw snow.
