Life after work and the trips of a lifetime

"We are judged by what we finish, not by what we start." - Anonymous

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, your body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "Woo hoo! What a ride!..attributed in this form to either Maxine Cartoon or anon

and finally I've just about managed to stop turning on the windscreen wipers everytime I want to turn left or right.  However gear changes are still a bit iffy...the car doesn't seem to thrive on changing from 5th to 2nd (when I mean to go down one to 4th).

Finding  a place to park in a busy city remains a major problem for this little Aussie driver. Eventaully we found a about an hour later.......

Anyhow we tramped around the old city and looked at a Roman Ampitheatre and then sat down for a meal.

It was at this point that I went into eye-bulge mode as I realised just how small this world is  as a guy rode by in full St Kilda CC kit .  Other options are available for tourists or residents who want to ride:

next stop Agrigento and the Valley of the Temples

  1. Just caught up on your travels. Saw Jodi and David at the bank this morning and they reminded me. Did you know that the World Masters Games will be in Turin 2013?
    Time for another trip me thinks.
    Travel safely
