I bet the fire was still smouldering from the last time we were there PJ.
Great spot that, I remember.
Drive safe!

After 2 days at the beach swimming and sunbathing, we departed for Milan. On the route we pass thru a cyclone, it was awesome! Water poring off the bridges and flooding the road. Most drivers pulled over giving me a clear road the wade thru.

Once we reached Milan we had a few hours site seeing, the place is well worth a visit.

We are camped 20mins north of Milan, tomorrow we will reach Germany.

There is a gap, but you get the idea

A weekend at billing followed by a trip to the Alps then home via the beach, Milan etc.
