... good doctor, but to start with some pain killers. On the road for Paciano, where we were hoping to have a GF cooking class. No response to a couple of emails, we were not 100% sure that all was going to go according to plan.... We headed for the address on the website and rang the bell at the gate (this is a 40 acre olive farm with an electric gate similar to ours). Immediately we were greeted by our lovely hosts, who explained that they hadn't received our email and had been trying to ...
Well, today was one of those absolutely perfect "this is my bloody Summer Holiday and I'm going to enjoy it" days!

We went on a guided tour that showed us about 1km of them. Amazing. Fantastic shapes, stalactites, stalagmites, strange rocks, calcite waterfalls, and everything. Despite mistakenly ...
... Tom had chosen took us through the Mont Blanc tunnel. Luckily we drove straight through (one of the reasons we left early!) at a cost of €42. Last year Lyn and Ci queued for over 2 hours just to get through the toll booth. The tunnel is over 11km long; a hell of an engineering feat that goes straight under Mont Blanc. The tunnels were a novelty at first but we soon got fed up of them…..I lost count of the number of tunnels we eventually ...
