More..

After a quick ride through Montenegro we drove back into Croatia...and spent 4 days in Dubrovnik.









Somewhat odd sculpture













After walking around the city walls we spotted this small swimming area...so we rush back to our campground and got our trunks.













We then finished off the cliff jumping with a few cold ones!





the next day we drove up the coast and spent a few hours at this beach.



milestone!




Above the old city








Leaving Croatia we took a ferry to Italy...and hit up the slot machines on board






Getting off the ferry and driving for a few hours we needed to eat something...It was around 1:00 am and all we could find was this small bar that had prepackaged sandwiches. They were the worst sandwiches we've ever had! It's never a good sign when a sandwich has an expiry date the is over one year in the future!




The next day we arrived on the west coast of Italy..










and stayed at this strange campground that had individual washroom huts for each spot.





More soon!

More...

Onward to the Amalfi coast!








After a very winding drive along the Amalfi coast we camped just north of Naples... Upon setting up we found out that our campground was actually in a volcano crater...that was steaming away.






Once in Rome, Wayne broke his chain...so we had to stay for five days. The campground was run like a prison.


ie....









they sure made up for it with there facilities though. Classical music playing in the washrooms...pool, hot tub, restaurant, bar, WIFI....we were really roughing it! Plus we met a fellow motorcycle traveler from the Netherlands.






Off to see the sights with everyone else.






From Rome through Tuscany..so many beautiful sights to see.




















More soon

Does that mean that the inside of our bikes would be clean?
