??Milan, Tellaro and Cinque Terre?? Sorry to spam your mail with an overload of travel blogs - we are all up to date now. The next post will be in a week.
The train trip from Venice ?to Milan was a chance to chill out for 2.5 hours?. Milan is just a pit stop for the night? on our way to Central Italy??.
Milan the fashion capital of the world?, filled with well known branded shops? on every corner. That evening we head out for my birthday dinner and enjoy the wonders of an all you can eat Milanese Buffett - the Hoover is in heaven???.
11th September - we are ready to leave the city and can't wait to start our tiki tour of Italy. We pick up our car and after a few whip lash instances we are off. We get help setting the GPS but unfortunately they set it for ❌no❌ motorways. The whole trip should of taken us 2 hours 40 minutes? when it really took 7 hours 30 minutes?. Lesson learnt!!!!!
We arrive in Tellaro and greeted cheerfully by our host Giovanni- we quickly forget about the long painful trip by looking at the spectacular view of Tellaro and the Cinque Terre. Clusters of houses??? set on the cliff edges - like something out of a movie?. It's really lovely and we feel like we could stay here for ever.
Giovanni takes us on a tour of the village. The old part of town was built in the 1400s and the new part as they call it was built in the 1800s. We are looking forward to exploring tomorrow.
12th September - I think this is my favourite destination so far - the water is crystal clear with fish swimming around the rocks. We climb down 184 stairs to our little beach and set up camp for the day - a great day swimming and chillaxing.
We are so lucky - out host Giovanni picks us up in his jet boat and takes us for a tour around Tellaro, Port of Venus (amazing?) and Lerici and lots of other towns⛪️ - Cinque Terre. It is breathtaking.??
We leave tomorrow bound for Tuscany - fingers crossed Dad takes the direct route this time?
