... not too many years before Mt Vesuvius erupted in 79AD.

We have had a nice quiet day and have met some lovely couples. One was in the coffee lounge when we got talking to an older English couple (now that’s a surprise, not) who were just so interested in us and our holiday. They shared some of their experiences with us and the four of us had a few laughs together. Splendid. Again at lunch, we ...

From a distance, either north or south, Gallipoli was a strikingly white town out in the blue of the Mediterranean. Absolutely spectacular.

TT struggled with taking us to the information centre. Miles out. It also wasn't where the town map indicated, LP, and, in fact, was hidden away down a narrow street in the middle of the town. It was indicated accurately in the tourist brochure that ...

We watched her, eyes glazed over, her resistance ebbing away as she was consumed by the emporia, much like a dung beetle in a cowpat.

There's nothing for it, Signor ...

Gallipoli - Apulia or Pulgia - commune of Lecce


We have found a campsite at the bottom of the heel of Italy near Gallipoli (not to be confused with the battleground of World War 1 in Turkey). The camp site has everything, good walks for me, a bar for Signor and a washing machine for Signora. I think we may be here for at least a week, looking at the size of the laundry basket.
