... there was a Decathlon 2-3 miles down the road (Dual Carriageway) so for the first time in the history of our trip we went out in the van during a stay to find it. We found it and despite the language barrier were refunded the over charged amount within a few minutes, simple.. (I am sure you are all glad to hear this)
Secondly, We visited Pavia, there ...
... all in need of repairs, but no money to do it. Once outside, I rang Giorgi who found my purse and then organised for Rosanna to pick it up. Rosanna had invited us to lunch Monday, but as we were going then, she made it Sunday. Just that her brother and uncles and aunts couldn't make it as they had other commitments that day. So rosanna and Mauro picked us up at half eleven and we went back to Murisengo. Her children, Gabrielle, and Alessandrio were there. And her ...

... simply seemed totally dead. finally with nothing happening
and me boiling under all my gear in the afternoon heat I simply went around the
barrier and off to find a hotel without paying anything!! Bet the coppers will
be waiting there for me tomorrow, haha

miles today and am hoping to make it to Rome tomorrow and then head across Italy
and take a ferry over the Adriatic.
That's it for now
