Monday 23 June 2008 - An Italian Border Route - Prologue No 1

It has been a busy day!

The kit that was strewn around the house was relocated to an upstairs bedroom (me - shown above), and to the dining room (Sue).

It has been stuffed into containers and is ready to go - Mike is picking us up at 5 am to take us to Liverpool airport for the flight to Nice. He's possibly the only rock guitarist in the world ready to get up at 4.30 am to provide a taxi service for his dad. Thanks Mike!

I've started a web page - here - that will be added to in due course when we return. It currently just links to our kit list, a spreadsheet of our planned itinerary, and our detailed itinerary.

It will be interesting to see whether or not these plans, based on my perusal of a few maps, bear any relation to what happens in reality.

Anyway, it's getting on for 1 am, so time to call it a day. We'll be trying to post short blogs when we get a phone signal, and we plan to write the trip up in more detail and add some photos after we return home in August.

In the meantime, we welcome any comments and observations - you never know, we may find an occasional internet cafe in which to view them.
