Mar 16, 2005 - A day waiting in Bari

In planning the transit to Croatia, we realized that we would spend a day waiting in Bari for the evenig ferry. Although we had heard of Bari's reputation as an industrial and uninteresting port, we figured waiting one day would be ok. In fact, the day was a very good one, and we enjoyed the city. Our boat from Greece came in as the morning fog was burning off. It turned into a warm sunny day. First order of business was to find out about the boat to Dubrovnik. We could not book tickets at the port, but we wanted to be sure about getting on...

Feb 13, 2005 - Pino

So, while we're watching Smallville, enjoying some time to ourselves (as much as you can when people continually stop and stare in the window at you), we are interrupted by an older man who come screaming in the doorway, waving his arms demanding that we want water or tea or coffe or wine, but we must be thirsty because the room is so hot and what can he buy for us?. After a short conversation that consisted of us telling him that we did not want anything and him going anyway to buy us some water, he sat down and began talking to us. We are...

Nov 22, 2004 - Brindisi, Italy

My room at the Venezia was your typical small room with a single size bed, but at least it had a sink and mirror. The bathroom was in the hall and was bigger than most. The shower stall, though, was open to the room. No door or curtain.

Antonio, the taxi driver, talked me into meeting him the next day at 8:00 am. to go to the port and get my ticket for the ferry to Greece. I...

Oct 18, 2004 - Ciao

Greetings from Italy, As I have a couple of hours to wait before my train leaves for Rome, I thought that I would just log in with you at the start of another long week, although as always when you are having fun, I am sure that it will fly by (and not just the landscape flying past the train window). Yesterday was a good day travel wise as not only have I have crossed my 3rd national boundary, and my mobile has been on its fourth different national network of the trip (well, 5 if you count T-Mobile back in the UK) - as it picked up the...

Jul 13, 2004 - Off to Bari

Last night was very fun, Denise, Shelly, Carla (Denise's roomie), and I sat up until just after midnight having a couple of drinks and they were teaching us Italian. We had a really good night. We left Rome @ an awful time this morning to catch a train to Bari. From Bari we are jumping on a ferry to take us to Pataras in Greece. We are so excited to get to some water. Well our first class rail pass we bought finally paid off on the ferry. Instead of not having a seat at all and just staying on deck of the boat we got a boarding room. We are...
