The boat electrics are buggered, MWNN thinks he has killed the car's engine climbing the last section of the 500 metre rise from the valley floor, luggage was left behind at the hotel in Allessandria, but today we lunched beneath the mimosa and lilac to the sound of the cuckoo and swifts so all is well Casa Hesadevil.

We have no signal for the boat phone here so urgent messages should be sent to MWNN's mobile number. The lost luggage contains the phone chargers and adapter plugs for Italian electrics so this will be the last entry until they arrive in the parcel the hotel promised to send.

Views from various rooms and terracec of the Lilac Apartment See I told you we were high up.

Hopefully you get to read this sooner rather than later - simply because it means your parcel has arrived.

And I hope the boat is salvageable - so to speak!!

No parcel but we are now in Florence and have managed to buy more adaptors for the phones and laptop so I am a happier bunny.

We don't know about the boat's electrics for we left instructions for an electrician to call and are only now sending the working mobile number to the Capitaine of the Marina.

Sounds like quite an adventure you're having there!

Almost as big as the boys' adventure in Rome.

You sound wonderfully chilled:)

Warming up in Florence today. We've not visited a tourist spot 'in season' before.

Well, I'm glad you're there. Tuscany can soothe away a thousand woes. Hope the parcel has been swift!

Parcel will be delayed. It's coming by courier and from next Monday to Friday, the main route up to the apartment is blocked and there's a 3 km deviation.

But we are now in Florence (today)and have managed to buy more adaptors for the phones and laptop so I am a happier bunny.

Hoping this is now the end of all the troubles and it will be smooth sailing from now on.

We're getting there. Breakfast on the terrace overlooking the Val Umbrosa is helping.

Aieeee. ::many hugs::
At least the lunch sounds memorable. Hope that the rest of the journey improves.

We're now taking breakfast each morning on the apartment's terrace overlooking the Val Umbrosa. Today we're in Florence replacing the lost adaptors for charging phones and laptop.

Hmmm. I wonder if you weren't showing on my flist for a while because I missed this post as well.

Or maybe I'm suppressing because I can't lunch beneath the mimosa and lilac. I'll be going to the beach soon, though. That's something.

Sounds like you are having a time of it. All the more reason to embrace the wonder of Florence!
