Fast sail all the way over to Otranto and even had the fun of Dolphins playing at the helm. Busy shipping lanes overnight kept us all on our toes and Eric plenty of time to practise his lights.

Today we returned to Otranto, which we visited five years ago on our first ever bike trip to Italy. The ride up the coast was gorgeous with rolling hills and sheer cliffs to the ocean; it was some of the best biking terrain we have seen. Otranto brings back very fond memories of time spent here with friends. We stayed in the same five ...
