Good Morning Vancouver
So we are near the boot of Italy tonight. Out on the coast at a small sort of B & B called Borgo di Santa Barbara. It is a few Kms past Tropea and not like the one closely named the same in California. In fact we are within sight of the sea, within meters of the railway line and within fewer meters of 6 goats and a rooster who thought it was morning about 5:30 when we arrived. We wanted to flee the touristy areas and guess what...we have. I ...
A 4:30 start had us pack our final few things and then follow the coast line to the airport as the sun rose over the ocean. Not many beach goers at this hour but we did see one or two people out, believe it or not. There was a dog laying on the pavement sound asleep. Probably found it cooler there although he/she does live dangerously I must say. After a long wait in what didn't seem like a very long line-up, we checked in at Lamezia ...

We have created many new memories that will carry us until next time around. I guess I just have to be happy with ...
... they are major highways, they still have twists, turns and tunnels so it's very different than driving the 401 at night!! Add to that the fact that they drive so fast and don't normally obey the rules...let's just say it was nice to get back to Cleto. We went through Falerna and with the bright lights, open market and number of people about, you would have thought it was much earlier than the 1:00 a.m. ish that it was!! Sleep came easily after the food, the wine and the drive ...
