    Well check out is this morning at 10, but ivanu the owner says no problem you keep the bike and room until you taxi arrives at 5.

    I can't say enough how helpful he has been, he has watsapped me each day to see how I am and where I'm off to, and he has sent me Web links to some of the sights where I'm going to along with recommendations for restaurants and bars.
    He's also told me the mayor has decided to do a lock down from Monday, and there was me looki g to stay on lol. Still it's home today to my own 14 day lock down 😷

    Stone the crows 25 passengers going home to lock down lol

    Day 10

    October 19 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Well last day with the car so thought I would head to yet another beach. Ended up going a beach near orosei, as to be expected it was glorious weather sunny and temperature just around 20-21 degrees.
    The water was surprisingly warm although there was a strong current I still managed a 30 minutes water aerobics session, which was a damn sight easier than climbing the bloody mountain yesterday lol.
    After today I'm on a bicycle to the local beaches nearer to porto san paolo.

    Day 9

    October 18 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Brilliant sunshine but rather than the beach I'm making use of the car and heading in search of some nuraghe archaeological. To date they've eluded me as they are literally hidden or just in some random fields lol.
    Hotel manager advised to look around arzachena as they are more accessable

    Well I found them and there was some bloody hike involved lol anyhow as the sun was out I decided to test the water... It was cold! But definitely refreshed the parts

    Day 7

    October 16 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Well nice start to day, really sunny so went to a cove that has loads of flamingos, typical camera battery was flat so only able to take photos with phone. Beautiful bay gorgeous colour to water, stayed till dinner then attempted to see some ruins... What a nightmare, sat nav on car stopped working in hills, phone no signal so no map apart from an off line one that didn't help.
    Still it was a nice drive around, a bit like the lakes only the hills are mountains lol
    Try again tomorrow now I've bought a paper map.

    Day 6

    October 15 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Well got the car and I read about this little town in the mountains called Orgosola which isn't really a tourist site but is quaint and has lots of murals first started by some feuding anarchists during the Italian resistance, so I thought I would take a trip there.
    Well it's certainly in the hills and apart from the road in all others are like alleys, I found driving in the village impossible as most roads were like 45 degrees plus.
    Spent ages there and I'm sure I only saw a small portion of the murals as they are virtually on every street/alley and park.
    It's quite thought provoking when you consider it was a way the village used to rebel, and they appear to be keeping it up lol
