Tolls and tunnels !!!

For a guy on his last legs yesterday J seems to have pulled himself up by his bracers and driven us 350km to Lake Como ..
We decided toll road prices would out weigh the price of the diesel and the cost of camping another night if we did the journey on the Autostrada rather than the free up and up and up windy with village streets scraping poor Hettys wing mirrors so here we are near Como at a toll cost €16-70 … Never mind the wear and tear on the driver unfortunately the passenger hates tunnels .. Most of the journey was through 2km tunnels with lorries on all sides IN torrential rain AND Italian lorries at that.. their drivers growing horns and a tail as they cut us up …. I don’t like tunnels or lorries … But the Po plain was as flat as a witches tit with all your risotto rice being grown there .. Skirted round Milan missing it completely …we have thought on another short trip to the Italian lakes in the future but at the moment it’s full steam home

Me and Him and Hetty like adventures ..We spend most of our summers sailing Now a little elderly for big boat racing and have turned to Radio Controlled Yachting competing nationally and even internationally ..I have travelled to many countries in my other life BJ (before John)lots of Indian backpacking trips. Panning gold in the Yukon..Pacific island hopping ..Far east and so on ..John won't go to India but I managed to get him to Morocco and Sri Lanka but didn't expect a Tsunami.
