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

The name tells us all......Capodimonte to Castel del Piano

any Italian town with the word "castel" or "monte" in it tells us we have an uphill heave to get there...that is over and above the standard uphill heave that is part and parcel of any ride here in Italy. If you really don't want to climb or descend then Italy is not for you.

Yesterday's ride from Rome started off with a 4km peleton to get us out of the confusimg and busy area and after that we were yet again climbing and descending, skills all of us have improved over the past week or so.

Lunch was at a very nice spot and gave me the chance to take pix of the 2 following signs both of which made me smile



memo to self..must stop molesting animals!!!

Later on I plan on doing a post on our campsites and the facilities in each, but today we had a shower block that contained multiple the toilet, basin and  shower were in one very small cubicle.  Since we're lucky to score a seat on the toilet, there is never in a million years going to be  a lid on it which meant that I spent the entire shower trime  making double sure I didn't drop the soap into the toilet!!!
