Feb 1, 2015 - Manfredonia

Today disaster really did strike!! Me & Ethel ( our SatNav ) had a real falling out, she's gone off in a huff & is refusing to speak to me. It was a lovely sunny start to the day. Viv went off to Mass at the pretty little church at the top of the hill just up from the site. As it quite often happens we were the only ones staying on this site last night so it was very quiet, apart from the church bells ringing out from various churches around the town.

Quite an interesting addition to the world heritage sites. The day was our hottest so far with temperatures around 25 degrees (75 degrees Fahrenheit) but totally overcast. We then headed off...

Jul 4, 2005 - Pescichi

You would almost think that Peschichi was some type of skinny, yapping dog but it is a gorgeous little town on the "spur" of the Italian boot. The beaches and along this coastline are quite rugged and completely different to what we have seen before. Red, almost muddy sand, and ice blue water. We arrived after a very long and windy drive and during our usual scout of the campsite before pitching, I managed to get the car well and truly stuck in the sand!!!! (Before Grant gets in here.... I have to say that there was another car parked on...
