The plastic chair ladies are also busy in Spain. I thought they were waiting for the bus! Plenty of them in Paris too!
Italy has a totally unique atmosphere. But one hazard to be wary of is the shocking pushy drivers. They don't mind 'modified' vehicles. One ripped his bumper off by challenging the Bumparossa for merging lanes in Rome. Silly man!
On the subject of break-ins, a couple of years ago there was a mass break-in 10 vans at the campsite in Amboise during the June music festival. M. le Flic, said they come through every year and are well gone eastwards before anyone wakes up. Talented bunch.
"When I was 17 the boys used to call me "Coke-bottle-legs". Fifty years later, they are still like Coke bottles. Sadly, the 2 litre version!"
