I think he'll be along soon if he doesn't get taken out by another Italian jam sandwich. In Italy now, it's fuckin hot. Stopped at a Tony sanctuary for ablutions. However, they do at least have proper coffee, the Italians wouldn't accept any less. PXL_20220613_124701702.thumb.jpg.7a7611d3e9678abf7541a8aeee4ed704.jpg

Alright it's not that fuckin hot, but then there is some green stuff around and it's not a desert. Around 30. PXL_20220613_150847908.thumb.jpg.87f533ef6f9aeaa4d8846758310d095c.jpg

The rain has returned. Just stopped for a min. Been mostly main roads today but it's getting there now.

In answer to the burning question, my bum is fine because I don’t have the original seat (an instrument of torture) I have a Sargent.

Ohh I saw a factory for the big Italian brand Luxotica today. It reminded me to tell you that whilst in Southern Germany I saw a couple of Liebherr factories and got quite excited.

Back latish for tea. Everything shuts at 7 so struggled to find an open shop on the way home. Note in picture the spar says open all day but we got there at half 7 and as soon as a grabbed a pack of sausages the shutters went down on the fridge.

Still, managed to get some onions, bread and a bit of grappa.

Just the duo. Internet is a bit shit tonight. Had a bit of a day off from riding. Late ish one yesterday, took longer than expected getting back from Slovenia, which was going to take ages anyway but they shut the pass back home. Didn't make it home afore dark. Over a hundred miles home, already 8pm and the only straight bit was £1.20 worth of auto strada. Rain. Fog. Deer. Millions of speed cameras. Spam and butter fried stale bread for a 1am picnic. I must've kicked a deer, as I was doing a prolonged doctor's dangle to stretch the leg and all of a sudden a shadow ran across the road with a thud to the boot. Wasn't the last one we saw. Petrol was very cheap in Slovenia though, 50p cheaper. 

You can't see very well either after going through a lit tunnel at reasonable speed but full of mist, then being plunged into the darkness. Visor fully fogged. Glasses fully fogged.

That’s me in the midst of consuming almost a full bottle of 30% alc real limoncello. Made with the proper lemons from amalfi. And lovely it was too. I fancy buying a crate!!

they had 95% spirit which made the lads eyes light up. Multiple purposes, drink. Use as a hand sanitizer or fuel for the stove!!

It was not. It's even more unpleasant queuing in it. Oof. Had a shower and walked up the village to the boozer and need another one.

Threatened to rain earlier but it soon changed its mind and put the blue back up. Currently supping a (french sized) pint, listening to conversations in German, Dutch, French, and Belgian, and waiting for the food to roll up. No sign of Tony yet.

You can never lose a Tony. Well that's not true, there's times when it's undeclared "time to get a move on" but no, he went out and I stayed around the campsite to tend to my sore head and swollen uvula. He's now back, full of kebab and with a 4 pack of tartelletes, empty but for a few crumbs.

Three days left and I got a pannier key cut in 2 minuits at the intermarché. Voila. 

Edit: now I can go back to the first campsite and get the bondage gear out the case.
