Today's journey turned out to be a little longer than we had imagined though we are typing this from hotel number 3 in Genoa, so we clearly made it in one piece.
It started off wet and yukky in Lucca and we got the chance to find out that the windscreen wipers worked rather well - and that Sergio is surprisingly refined with the top closed. Bob even fits - just.
The first hour was refreshingly hassle free and quite a fun ...
