Day 22 – Down to the Sea

Posted: October 12, 2014 in Travel

CLP was happy. Had been able to do two washes and now cook a hot breakfast . If there had been an ironing board handy she would have been in seventh heaven.

Ouch, someone just slapped me in the face!

Ok , now I was awake it was time to head out for the day where we were going to follow the Adriatic Sea for a while along the Coast stopping for lunch as we go. Luckily we had a car or may not be back to write this

First we stopped at Flashnhome where we had a walk around the town for 10 minutes. Two circuits actually but a lovely little village. We stopped for a very nice coffee too. GH1 ordered, GH2 paid, I drank. It was white, then it was brown, then it was down. Then it was off along the cliff tops to Gibas for lunch

Ok this was officially a stunning place and could well be World Heritage listed next week. We parked our moped between the Ferrari and the Porche and wandered to our table Under the Tuscan Sun – if we had actually been in Tuscanny that is. The view was superb and the food sublime. Photos do not do justice let me tell you – especially with a new camera we were still learning about. A leisurely couple of hours were spent discussing peace in the Middle East and other weighty topics before it was time to head north again. I almost embarrassed myself – again- first though. Roberto bought out a small dish at the end with what looked like 4 pepper mints on it. I thought well it is almost ” wafer thin” why not. About to reach over and grab one when he started trickling water over them. Ok, after dinner entertainment I guess. But, lo and behold, they began to rise like a Phoenix and become the 4 Towers. They were actually warm hand/face wipes like you get on planes! Ya really owe it yourself to travel folks.

Some more beautiful spots to stop along the way as we continued to follow the Coast North. I know I could never live here because I would kill a cyclist a week at least. They are simply and largely arrogant pricks. Along a narrow road going downhill they will ride 4 abreast with no intention of forming a single file! Occasionally there may be a young lady in Lycra you feel the need to stop and help get her leg over but generally they are oafish ignorant clowns that think they have a god given right to ride wherever they want. Whereas clearly I have that duh.

Finally it was home and as there had been the requisite break while driving it must have been drinkies time again. Some bubbles and then some more red from the vat Earle must have hidden somewhere and it was time to crawl up the stairs to bed. Tonight I say we swap floors if this drinking nonsense keeps going:)

Today we go Truffle Hunting apparently with an elephant or some animal leading the way I believe. Should be interesting.

There could be wine tasting involved afterwards….
