We saw a few eagles one of which showed us a gorgeous meadow park up. Which was perfect except for the amount of flies. There were apparently wolves, snakes, wild cats, boars and ginormous mosquito's. The weather is definitely hotting up. I made the most of the space to do a few repairs..hopefully no more leaks now. We accidentally fell out of the park and into farmland but it was still beautiful.
Woke up really early, it was so hot, I walked Scruff and came back absolutely melting with heat stroke and everything, it was only 7 o'clock
We went into Lecce - a city with amazing architecture, lots of gargoyle type things. We got there early evening and had a guy tell us he'd keep an eye on the van - he'd shown us a parking space in the carpark and hovered around waiting for a tip so we gave him a €. The only trouble was it was in a market so we had to move by 7 am. We went and had a pizza, scruff didn't like it, was far too busy for him, bit too busy for us too but we still had a little stroll and a delicious icecream from a gelateria. We got up at bout 6 and moved the van, took advantage of being up early to have a walk around. It was so quiet. We took pictures of the sights without hundreds of other bodies in the way J Such a different place to the night before. A night in another hilltop fort town - Ostuni. Where the Italian's were all out watching the football semi final on a big screen in the square, there was a throne there too we noticed in the morning, no idea who had sat on it. Saw cute little 'trulli' houses dotted about all over the place, found an old ramshackle one to have a look at which meant I had to gently work my way thru a field of brambles (tricky business in a pair of shorts) on our way to the ferry at Bari
We now in Greece and this is the first time found net since Tuscany except on the boat. Not had chance to download all the pics, having trouble accessing lena's photo's on my computer which is why there no photos of me but hey i'm sure you all remember what i look like anyway ;) hope to get on net again soon and will bring everything up to date. Its so hot here right now though it's hard to do anything! 30degrees even at night!! It's gotta be better than the rain though eh ;) Hope you all doing well and having lots of luck!! Oh and if anyone has any handy tips on the best way to drive from here back up towards croatia would be much appreciated! Hugs xx
