Okay, here's the plan.

Some time in mid to late September 2018.
The plan is to rent a car at Aeroporto di Milano Linate.



There will be three main destinations.
  • Monteforte d'Alpone
  • Cerveteri
  • Altamura
These are chosen because I know people in these areas who I want to catch up with.
These smaller towns also give me an environment where not much English is spoken.
Just Italian and local dialects. The idea is to be based in each of these areas for about twelve days.*

Arrive in Milano - drive to Monteforte d'Alpone (near Verona) - drive to Ladispoli (near Roma) - drive to Altamura (near Bari) - drive back to Roma and head home.

1) Monteforte d'Alpone






2) Cerveteri










3) Altamura







Okay, there is a lot of planning to do and there will be a lot of challenges, like flying for hours and hours and driving on the right hand side of the road. We will need to break the long journey with a stop over - probably in Singapore.

Chi va piano va sano e va lontano.

A grand plan.
My dad went to those areas in WW2. He enjoyed it. Well he enjoyed it until he was blown up by an 88 shell.
Watch out for those Jerries.

Who's Shellie?

I was just thinking that Richard's wife may have preferred a cruise!

Richard (of RBB) ha detto...

No. She'd hate that. As would I.

Richard (of RBB) ha detto...

On cruises and bus tours you eat 'pub food' and don't experience the culture or the language. May as well stay at home.

You also get Novo Virus, fondled by sexual predators, have your activities in bed recorded on hidden video recorders, and, if your luck is like mine, get stuck at breakfast, lunch and dinner with the most boring people on earth.

Richard (of RBB) ha detto...

Okay then.
