Where I stayed
Our neighbours had a nocturnal child and the others were silver foxes with a camper and scooter on the back - that's the way to do it !
We took a scenic drive round to Portofino and discovered that our beast of a car was about 1.5 times the size of the local cars - not easy to park in the underground spiral car park !!!!!
One of the worlds top yachts - the Maltese Falcon was moored offshore , 3 masts and certainly has the WOW factor . This is where we first realised that your average Italian bank isn't much use for our Jersey based Visa ATM card : TIP : if you find a bank that works take out as much as you can !!!!
Italian beaches , we found , are a maze of umbrella's and crocodile skinned middle aged women dripping in gold . We tried the old excuse of '' no speaka da Italaino '' when we were busted for not paying for our beach umbrella - nope , it didn't work !! This was Stu's first taste of being subjected to the water polo cap along with the Euro poof pants - oh the shame!!!
