Oh, look! Tour de France! I'm driving on a Tour de France road! Oh, my God look at that! look at that beautifully snow-covered mountain... whoa, it looks majestic! all right guys we are officially back on the road, leaving geneva today   it's been absolutely fantastic here but it's time for me to move  on and today is gonna be such a good day I hope... So, now I'm about to enter into France  so we are just here at the border stop   let's see what they say and they did not say a lot... fantastic! I was prepared to tell them that I had only been passing through under 24 hours because I was afraid it  might affect if it's you know because of corona   then you can only be in Germany (France) for example for 24 hours   but yeah all good no problems  110 kilometers per hour let's go! look how beautiful those mountains are all right guys i think i have reached the  first pinpoint of my trip today which is   a small city called Cluses and I will now be  heading into my first mountain pass and as far   as I can see... Wow, it's so beautiful! as far as I can  see I need to head straight here and up through i need to go up through the mountain passes  here on this side you can see right about Yes! In through that mountain pass over there   so now it's already going quite steep up so  I think it's like this way I need to go into   the mountains I just have to reset my GPS  to the next pinpoint and then let's go up, up up! in case i haven't told you already these roads  are actually some of the roads that they use for   tour de france because they are so steep and  because the view is absolutely breathtaking oh that looks tough let's give him a thumbs up this is not a place where you want  to drive over the edge, you guys...

wow you can even see on that  mountain up there there's snow on top   Yeah, I think I need to prepare myself that  it's gonna be a little bit chilly today so guys i've just made a quick stop here um i  haven't even driven that far yet but i parked   the motorcycle here and check out this view  it is so beautiful and i can already feel that   it's starting to get cold i can see the mountain  top here the sun is shining and there are some   people over here walking on the side picking  up flowers you have the bicycles driving down   fast through the small mountain road so I have  to be really careful but it's just it's amazing   i really do have to be  careful on these roads because... there are some people passing on either bicycles  or motorcycles even cars as well and they are   driving crazy fast especially when i'm in the  turns like this or if i'm stopping on the side   of the road trying to get some pictures then i  have to be so careful wow so if i were to go a   little bit off the side of the road here it would  be a very hard fall because the only thing that   would be holding me back is tiny pieces of wood  and barbed wire i don't think that's gonna hold me   Ouii, break! Sh**t that's gonna be my main concern  besides finding gas, keeping my eyes on the road   because it's so hard not to get totally amazed  by this view and just stargaze you know just "Hah!" so this place where i'm driving through right  now is actually also a ski resort i can see   some places here on the hills that are there are  ski lifts so in the wintertime this is probably   covered in snow...  Oh, look! Tour de France in 2011, they were driving right here in 2011... I'm driving on the tour de France road, I feel  so lucky...   up there... see? up those hills are the ski lifts in this area every single turn you take  even though if it's just lower down or higher up   it just keeps on giving (the view)... I'm gonna have  way too much footage from this area

see even the bicycles are driving faster than me   but i don't mind because i'm gonna  enjoy every little bit of this place Alright, guys time for a small stop, I got a feeling that is getting close to lunchtime so I'll just take check  the time... it is 12.30 and that means   it's lunchtime and "Harus Pipiis"... as I would tell Jun if we're on a trip... Damn! I missed Jun... so guys since it is 12.45 right now  i thought this would be a perfect   place for a little stop so it's a  small restaurant and bar called, La Bouillotte, probably not saying it correctly   so guys i got my little coffee here perfect time for a break the lasagna is on  the way the coffee is three euros and the   lasagna is 19 euros so it's not as expensive  as geneva but it's still not indonesian prices well guys i don't know what you say but i  think that lasagna looks amazing so now i'm   gonna rest a bit have my lunch and then we're  gonna get back on the road so see you in a bit all right guys we are back on the road and  i'm heading further down these mountain passes   and the view just keeps getting better and better  and better I'm now in between the mountain passes here and look at those tops with this snow it's  just something right out of a postcard you see so guys this small city i'm driving into here  oh i already forgot the name i'll put it here   on the screen it is so beautiful you have a  little church here in the middle of the city so guys i've just made a small stop in this  little city called le grand bonan and right   here behind me, there is a very beautiful little church, there's a little carnival here and   believe it or not right behind me  right back there is mont blanc probably   heard the name before for the pens but this is  the mont blanc mountain it's beautiful right? so guys i think i found a nice small little  hotel uh pretty cheap i think it was 67   euros including breakfast which is a  pretty good deal and it's 45 minutes   away but now i just want to enjoy the view  of mont blanc right here in front of me so quick stop guys here i just have to change the  batteries for the gopro and i think it's important   when i make a video like this that i don't just  show you all the fun moments making it look like   it's like the perfect trip because i'm actually  so tired today and i think i'm a little bit   dehydrated because of the sun because i've been  sweating so much um so it's it's a bit of a   hard day today but again i really can't complain i  just have to stop now to change the battery in you   um and you know what i'm parked here with the  most amazing view the mountains in the background   and i have running water right next to me and i  caught myself thinking oh i have to change the   battery again but i simply cannot allow that and  because i'm so lucky right now that i can even   though i have to change the batteries and that is  that it's hard and that it's hot and all this i   cannot complain about being in a place like this  if i just sit for a second and i'm totally fine   all i can hear is a few cars a guy running  past me and water running in the background   while looking at mountains, so...  just wanted to say that that   yeah i should complain this is fantastic but  also a little hard... all right, back on the road  

and oh yeah i forgot uh that mountain i just told  you was mont blanc it's not uh mount Montblanc   is behind it so i'll see you later just so i  didn't tell you something that was not true and i have arrived here at the little  city called la clusaz, whoa! That is a big mountain... I am wondering if that is mont blanc  because that is whoa yay high where am i going   here straight but i kind of want to go right  because i want to get closer to that mountain okay i have to stop here and  figure out if that is my majestic   mont blanc... checked on the map and that was not my  mount blanc it was a mountain called la Tourette   those guys just crashed are you guys  okay it's okay good nice bikes though take care and safe ride yeah oh these cities are so cozy there was a small  mini golf course there and this is just you   know perfect weather perfect summer day people  out walking hiking mountain biking rollerblading   I could honestly imagine myself having  a little house in a city like this one day   but I'm thinking it's not cheap... I keep opening  and closing my helmet because I don't want to miss   the slightest view even with my motorcycle helm  advisor ah there's the condos that you normally   use if you're skiing I can imagine just how  beautiful this place is when it's covered in snow Guys, you're not gonna believe what I'm looking at right now! Oh my god! Look at that! whoa it's beautiful.. Jesus! look at that beautifully snow-covered mountain  whoa it looks majestic especially because there's   so much green the sun is out and then  that completely snow white mountain top   holy the jesus! Ah, so there's so many people  here because it's like a hiking uh trail here   that makes sense it's such a beautiful place  oh what am i seeing danish flags what the   uh or maybe it's the swiss flag  is it a mistake oh well gotta go imagine doing your cardio here every  day on roads like this I could do that   no problem...

les Cavetz if anyone is  watching and thinking where exactly am i driving at the moment it is the Les cavetz and I'm on the d-909 and holy Jesus! Wow! it's beautiful... oh and there's someone flying up there paragliding so right now i'm just going  down down down but look at that oh i have gloves yeah so the police  officer actually just did like this to   me so apparently it is a requirement to wear  gloves here i didn't even know that... Bonjour monsieur in Switzerland (France), uh illegal to (not) wear gloves? oh it's the law here in France ah okay okay I didn't  know yeah true okay thank you so much! Have a good day! So, apparently i have to wear the gloves i  just actually took them off because it's easier to   use my camera when i have to start filming and  stop filming now that i know it's law here in   France, I'll of course definitely be wearing gloves...

when riding in France, you must be wearing gloves oh yeah I didn't know but thank you so much okay on roads like this i do understand  driving fast because these corners are amazing   driving through small caves here... it's dripping down with water wow it's a long way down on my  right side check that... Whoa! long way so i got five minutes left 3.1 kilometer  for until today's stop still on the d909   I just wow I hope I can see mont blanc  from from my hotel that would be insane and it looks like the city I'll be driving into  soon it's called Albertville I believe this   is where my hotel will be for the night, Oh! I'm supposed to turn right here okay, Saint Nicholas Chapel... south of montblanc oh it's gonna be good  to get some rest when i get into the hotel   I'm tired, thirsty and I just wanna see the  footage I took today because I think it's gonna be   Hell Cool! Ah! I can see Montblanc from my hotel! It's right over there! Dreams do come true! And, here's the place and I haven't even booked it yet So, I probably should go ahead oh it's okay it's okay   Hello! all right guys we're here this is the place all right guys i'm now checked into the hotel room here at chateau La saous, i'm probably not saying  that correct i'm gonna put it on the screen   i'm now sitting here on the ducati and i'm super  tired so i think that's gonna be it for today   it's a perfect little hotel i'm just quickly  gonna show you how the room looks like   right now it's pretty small it's not as  good looking as it is from the outside but   it will do for the night especially since  it was only 68 euros including breakfast   right as i'm saying this i'm looking straight  towards mont blanc so it's a perfect view and   if we look that way we have the chapel here in  saint nicholas chapel in the city so stay tuned   guys there's gonna be a lot more touring episodes  and in the next episode i will continue to drive   here in the Alps in France as I am driving  towards Nice so I hope you enjoyed today   stay tuned there's gonna be a lot more I will  see you in the next episode and until next time came as a complete surprise to me...

Whoah! It's so beautiful!
