Nov 1, 2018 - Pesaro, Italy

We came back to Italy from the country of San Marino. Pesaro is a small town on the Adriatic Sea, down the mountain from San Marino. It is known as "the city of music" because of Gioacchino Rossini, the famous composer born in Pesaro in 1792. He wrote 39 operas as well as some sacred music, songs, chamber music and piano pieces. And, in the pictures, you will see the rainbow that always comes after the storm to lift your spirits!! And it certainly did it for us!!! Our tour guide, Silvia, told us that the local people of Pesaro aren't used...

Jun 10, 2015 - Pesaro, Italy

Wednesday, June 10th. The next morning at 11 am Alix came to the park to escort us overland to the garage. Obviously, we had been reading too many, spy adventures and mysteries because after about 20 minutes of driving narrow country roads with no other traffic in site I started to close the windows and lock the doors. Alix knew we had the cash to pay for the tires as the garage wouldn’t accept a credit card. I flashed the lights and we stopped. Alix got out of his vehicle and Bill asked him how much farther. Just a few more kilometers was...

Mar 15, 2012 - On the road again

Thursday after breakfast we left Rome in the morning rush hour with the almost flawless navigation from Doris the GPS. Without her it would have been tense, very tense, very, very, tense. But it wasn’t. Our destination was on the east coast in Pesaro and Robert had a 3 pm appointment, so we couldn’t be late. That meant driving straight there with lunch at a roadside café eaten in the car in the parking lot. Our journey east took us up and over the Apennine Mountains, peaking about 3000 metres and through a lot of tunnels. Each tunnel...

Aug 12, 2009 - 12th The City of Venice and the Heat…

Yes you guessed it another early start this time ive got a banging head ache, the local plonk was so cheap we bought a couple of bottles last night. Yeah great, we finished them both plus all our beer. We left the delightful little campsite on the Island and headed for the ferry, we joined the queue and were soon aboard. Whilst queuing noticed black gloop on hand - the gear knob had melted in the sun! Bit of duct tape we were sorted! We were aiming for a motor home park at the ‘Tronchetta’ of Venice we planned to park Myrtle safely and take...

Oct 17, 2007 - Pesaro

Ciao Tutti! Pesaro is amazing! People are so great even through our inability to communicate with each other. Paul's cousin Lorenzo is taking english and has been our translator for the most part which has been a godsend. Monday night we went to Carlo and Maria's for dinner (family.) They came to Canada to visit Paul's family in 1986 with their daughter Franchesca who was 17 at the time. It was a great visit ...Franchesca came over too with her husband and daughter who is 15 ...they had a whole album from their visit to Canada when Paul and...

Jun 18, 2007 - Journey to Urbino

Well, after a long day's journey, I have finally made it to Urbino. Although it was hard, it was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I have certainly gotten to practice my Italian lately, since no one here or anywhere close speaks ANY English. I took a train from Florence to Bologna, then from Bologna to Pesaro. Fom Pesaro, I took a bus (a first for me in Italy) to Urbino. The trip was beautiful! between Bologna and here, I saw nothing but countryside, full of fields of sunflowers and lavender, and huge expanses of vineyards. And it...
