We are a Romeing (roaming)!!

Our GPS guides Bruce closer and closer to Roma (Rome). Along cobbled streets with ancient walls on either side of us and finally to his CAMPERSPOT only 2km from the Colosseum and the centre of Rome.  One thing for sure – the Italian drivers live up to their reputation. Indicators are for decoration, a toot of the horn means “lookout – I am coming through” and swapping lanes at last second is considered normal here. Consequently ambulances are zooming around everywhere… any wonder why (Bev can hear one now!!).The panel beaters here are obviously kept very busy.

Legging it to the Italian Lakes

We enjoyed the spectacular view of all the mountains in the backdrop.IMG_0199
