Basic hotel with a train passing very close. Wifi didn't work very well, too slow to download emails. 40 euro cab ride from Bari. Ok for an overnight stay.

Up at 5.30am (body alarm still active). I am taking advantage of this by doing a 30min walk around the top deck while watching the sun rise over a brilliant calm sea. No one else is up apart from the crew who are washing the decks and cleaning up after yesterday. Loving this fresh air, the smell of the sea and the music playing.

... happened to pass by a couple from our group who had just upgraded their ticket to a sleeper cabin.

We then got on another ferry to take us to Corfu where we would be staying for two ...
