I then went for a very quiet drink before returning to the hostel. Breakfast here doesn't start until 9am tomorrow so hopefully I can sleep in first.
I like this accommodation, and one of my original impressions was how quiet my room was, since you couldn't hear any street noise. Well unfortunately I forgot about the church around the corner, which seems to love ringing its bells. I think it rings bells on every hour, when mass is ...
