Thumb Breathtaking scenery and receipts.

The scenery is breathtaking. You are driving close to the hills, following their
natural form, the road is twisty but in perfect shape. To our left is the sea and
to our right the mountains. We are driving south, reaching La Caletta and then
a few miles more to Santa Lucia.

A small camping place is found and we were asking them about prices. They can
offer 15.- EUR for 2 person in a tent. Showers are clean, hot water and the
toilets are ok, no they are also very good. They are also offering trailers to stay
in, a couple should pay 30.- EUR per night. We ask them for a little late season
discount and they agree to 20.- / night. Wolfi and Joerg would prefer the tent,
because it's more "adventure and holiday feeling" but for nightmarion and me, a
campingtrailer is adventurous enough.

so we drop our luggage, set up all the electronic stuff for the communication
with the civilization (and charging my mobile) and were so fucking happy to
be here. Nearly 20C, a soft wind from the sea, a wonderful spot to stay and
all we need is a dinner.

Dinner ... the camping spot has a "restaurant" .. and they were offering a
delicious frozen pizza for 5.- EUR. Ok, sorry Sir, no way i am gonna eat a
frozen piece of pizza when i am in Sadegna. So off we go (per pedes) to
a nearby Restaurant. Mama Maria in Santa Lucia, if you go there, be prepared
for the finest food on earth. There is no menu or daily specials card. Just tell
her, what you like to eat .. not in detail, just say "like fishes or please no fish
but beef or noodles .. cheese is great" and she will cook from the freshest
incridients a perfect meal for you.

The only thing is ... it's not really cheap ... but it's absolutely worth it.
