Goodbye Italy

Tuesday, 28 Aug 2007 | Views [191]

So after several weeks (and spending far too much money: 24 euros for a nights camping was a little bit excessive i thought) it was time to get onto the ferry to Greece. Have to say, looking back i had fun in this country. Saw some great landscapes, ... Read more >
