... car drivers to drive. Luckily he drove well as once we left the autostrada, it was very, very windy to get to our hotel. Also Wendy is probably almost cured of her fear of tunnels as we lost count of how many we went through in the almost 90 minutes it took to get to Monterosso. We checked in at Hotel Palme, checked out our fourth storey room with sea view and balcony and went for a quick orientation walk.

Then we arrived back at our hotel at about 4pm. Our kind guide spent some time with us giving directions for a day ...

... around Italy and France, Luck would have it that a guy was standing at the dock with 5 € umbrellas and around the corner was a small thrift store where I picked up a pretty cool light rain jacket for the same price.
