It's really quite beautiful and each town has something cute to offer. Because of my fascination with lampposts I snap away at them as we walk around. We spend a few hours checking it all out before heading back to the car. We head off and as Aaron drives and John navigates we figure out we are driving in the total ...

A young Italian man talking to himself and going very slowly. He wished me Buen Camino (that's what I think we have to do. My other standard greetings are Ola (used 97% of the time) and 'buenos Dias'. This latter one seemed to work until everyone started saying something else back - I realise in ...
