Everything to Excess
Thursday, after breakfast in the spectacular surroundings of the Aoste valley And a 2 hr cat nap we carried on past Bologna and went to Rimini for an overnight before the ferry at 17.30 Friday.
Little tired but the initial marathon drive through blinding overnight rain in the boring part of the trip through France was worth it. A second wind allowed us a great night in Rimini which is about 2 hrs from Ancona. A leisurely drive and lunch on today will set us up for our first ‘authentic’ Greek meal on the Minoan ferry.
The cheap (02 plate £700) Mini I bought has performed superbly and I’m thinking may be worth importing?
