... leg was a stretch of mountain passes with roads lined with trees with their turning leaves. It was just warm enough to have the windows down and smell the freshness in the air. Once in Pisa we parked the car and were hit with a heat wave. Deciding to soak it in we got some beer and sandwiches and well a little sweet to share on the grasses of the church and leaning tower.

Back at the hostel we greeted the German girls in the WC with 'Ameisenscheisse!’ and then Joanna and I curled up on the couch, as I introduced her to Game of Thrones. Oh, this series is so treacherous and ...
