Germany-Corsica trip

Sorry guys, this will be a bit piecemeal as I get my sh!t caught up from being away .

Sept 1-9

Heidelberg, Germany (Knopf Tours)
Wassen, Switzerland (Hotel Gerig)
Genoa, Italy (Moby Ferry Lines)
Bastia, Corsica
Ajaccio, Corsica (Hotel Kalliste)
Solenzara, Corsica (Mare e Festa)
Ile Rousse (Corsica Ferries)
Nice
Gr St Bernard pass (Hotel Albergo Italia)
Heidelberg

A bit over 1700 miles in 7 days, on my FJR1300 and my buddy on a rented R1150RT

Almost no Autbahn/Autostrada except for the last day.

Passes: Susten Pass, Furka Pass, Grimsel Pass, Simplon Pass, Col de Montgenevre, Col Du Mont Cenis, Petit St Bernard, Gr St Bernard plus a few small passes which I could not locate names for

Ferry rides: Both were overnight crossings with cabins to allow for good sleep

Hotel reports:

Wassen Switzerland: Hotel Gerig. Right at the bottom of Sustenpass, bar/restaurant on site, gas station in town, grocery store next door.

reasonably priced, nice clean rooms, good food, family owned for generations:

Owners speak good English.

Ajaccio, Corsica: Hotel Kalliste. Sort of down town, nice updated old building with interesting architectural details inside using original stonework, Code access bike parking for free a 1/2 block away, good food options nearby.

Aosta, Italy, Gr. St. Bernard Pass: Hotel Albergo Italia. Have to stay here just for the spectacular scenery. walking distance to Swiss Side, Nice old place ( built in 50's I think), Nice rooms, Family owned and run, Not a bad value considering where it is. Very good food and service
