Back to the mainland.

Today promises to be a hot one, final disappointing breakfast buffet and back on the ferry.

A few short minutes and Italy mainland is under our tyres. Another long day of driving for Ian.

Imagine our delight when we chanced upon an erupting volcano, right beside the highway.
Many snaps & minutes of video as we were captivated by nature at its most raw, we were a little suprised at the traffic continuing past this mighty beast, with no detours or official presence.
It was a forest fire.

Our first view of mount Vesuvius.

After a very long day driving and planning a stupid o'clock start tomorrow, Ian decides we will travel into Naples for the holy grail.

After speaking to some very nice police officers regarding the right places to park, we arrive at the very welcoming Taj Mahal.

Ian enjoyed his Chicken Vindaloo, my Jalfrazi was perfect.
Well done Ian bed by 12.30 up at 6 tomorrow for Pompeii.

Excellent adventures! We have no fear of the Dodgems having driven in Italy..

Goodnight dear reader xx
