Gambassi (12th -14th Oct)
About 5km from Gambassi we are sitting in the middle of an olive grove next to a farm house with very friendly couple. The wife has just been over with 2 slices of homemade cake. All you can hear are the crickets pitch black and in the distance twinkling lights from villages. There is lightning and distant thunder now the rain has started!
Well calamity we are becalmed mechanical problems. Both suspension units have collapsed ,with Christopher's help contacted Bennington Carriages who have couried out 2 suspension units arriving tomorrow. Amazing as this all happened in the middle of the Tuscany country far from any houses. We were so lucky when someone stopped and told us of a mechanic just over the hi just near enough for us to limp into. We are in Case Nuove just a couple of kms from Gambassi Terme camped next to sports field, all being well we will be on our way tomorrow afternoon.
Parts just arrived we will be on the road once they are fitted hopefully we will reach San Giminiagno this evening.
We are off again within 24 Hours!
