Toll roads can be fun …

I would rather stay on LIDL car park than EVER spend another night on an Italian holiday village at€18 for the night …see Johns blog …
Had a very sedate toll road €4-70 but as the LED screen wasn’t working I had to keep throwing coins in…at 4-50 I asked assistance luckily I got an English speaker who said “€4-70 madam ” and goodbye … Most just yell louder …
Next toll was €7-30 and an attending person .. Much easier as I just pushed a note at her … One toll yesterday wanted €9 something and I didn’t have change and could I find the hole for a note Nooo !! HE shouted The voice of the attendant shouted and eventually I got it .. Now to see me do this is a laugh in its self as I have get out of my seat climb over a box of Peroni .. Lean out my window .. Most time I then have to open my door as the lorry pay area is to high and the car area is to low . So there’s me hanging on for grim death … We usually make it eventually . J has been for a walk to photograph the Leaning Tower of Pisa this morning as I have lost my enthusiasm for sight seeing at the mo and I stood guard at the van as we have heard horror stories from people who have stayed in the sosta … Burglaries couple were in bed and they had there laptop stolen .. East Europeans so the police said .. He enjoyed a little time out as did I .. I had a txting session with Dan who sent me new photos of Ruby .. We are now in La Spezia on an ambulance base car park so much happier here €10 for two nights for tomorrow we get the train along The Cinque Terre coast …
