“PAVEMENT POUNDING !!!”

Today’s walk from the Aire de sosta ,whose ticket machine will relieve us of a grand €16 on our departure for 24hr stay in a carpark without a view, but with leccy for our film night which was The Godfather part 1 .. is from Vado Ligure into Savona ..A walk of 5miles (this was revealed on my return) A walk of pavement bashing with an Icy headwind coming off the snow covered peak we had spotted on our marathon Toll road spree…eye watering and nose running wind ..without a hanky sort of cold ..sleeves are handy …Exercise is good for you HE says ….Mine had gone up from a monthly average of 0.72per week to 2.07 per day This is not a walk of culture or beauty but a walk of necessity to Bl***y LIDL After an incident at the tills keeping the queued Italian masses behind us grumbling ..HE went back to the bread section to add the all important sticky ticket of cost ..sighs ..Lesson learned “Get a Sticker”we knew that but forgot ..it’s an Italian thing ..in France n UK they know the price at the till ..Sighs I managed to stagger back with our haul of goodies …Pizza ,Insulata, Calzoni and other carryable yummies ..and an early Off to the port of Genoa on the narrow but very attractive coast road ..Arriving 5 hours early ..

A confusion with the security guards after we had been sent back from the ticket office with our Ref No ..”No” the guard said ..”go back to the ticket office ..you can’t come through with just your booking Ref No ” so back went a very disgruntled John ..Voila …Printed tickets this time ..At least the Security Guard was doing his job and one wonders what the ticket guy was up too???
