ITALY!!!! right for you and me.
Seriously, this trip has been amazing and way more than I expected, but camping in Italy has just blown everything out of the water; the crystal clear, beautiful water. Only pictures can do this justice because my words will fall very short of describing the unique beauty here. The food is amazing. No offense Susan, but Pizza Hut needs to take a lesson from Montorosso, Italy. An entire pizza with fresh pesto, basil and three cheeses (the best in the world in my opinion), and bottle of house wine (in Pizza hut terms the "fantastic family feast") for about 10 Euro or 15 American dollars (once again in Pizza hut terms, "five bucks, five bucks, five bucks!") So really good food. But the hike through the mountains was by far the highlight of the visit. We were hiking right along the coast and passed roses, cherry trees, lemon trees, olive trees, grape vines for the local wine, all of them bursting with color. Now these pictures are going to be awesome, trust me. To be continued again (battery power and train times don't always work in our favor here.)
