What I did
More toll booths.

Flag of Italy  , Italian Riviera,
Monday, September 30, 2013

Just when you think you have the paying of tolls down to a fine art. I'll just leave it at that and the trucks have returned with a vengeance. Like they all sat on the boarder of France & Italy and all left at once at 12:01 Monday morning.
Drove along the coast road toward Monaco from St Raphael. Very windy& narrow road that hugs the coast, so filled with pushbike riders in lycra of course. Nobody works in Italy on Mondays. Reached Monaco & thought we would have lunch. Busy place as there was an international boat show that finished on Saturday & they still had the whole harbour foreshore taken up with marquee's. Was only a quick stop but traffic getting around the coast was very busy. Never seen so many Porsche & Ferraris in one place, let alone the boats.
Travelled the next 140 klm's along the Italian motorway to our overnight stay at Varazze on the Italian Riviera. Place shocked us. Apartment is right on the beach and the town still has the old streets & cafes one road back from the beach.  Had booked for one night but Alice immediately changed that to 2 with a possibility of a third. Had a walk along the beach to town and dinner at a genuine Italian restaurant. Bludge day tomorrow on the beach & maybe Venice or Switzerland next, not sure yet. Rachel & Travis want Venice but I like Switzerland. Alice will decide no doubt.
Till then.
