Day 363: Westwards to PaestumFebruary 12 in Italy
Started the day with a quick Skype session with Mum for her birthday, then left our place around 10:30am. Drove westwards out of Basilicata province back into Campania, on the coast about two hours south of Naples. Fairly long drive, about three hours worth, and we stopped at McDonalds for lunch since it's the easiest option on days like this.
Arrived in the town of Paestum around 2pm where we checked into our apartment. It's a large BnB place with four rooms, though we're the only occupants. Spent the afternoon chilling out inside, then headed out for dinner in the evening at a local pizza place. Huge pizzas, very tasty and very cheap too.
Only downside to this place is that it's freezing cold here. There must be a cold snap or something because we're only a kilometre or so from the coast, but it's absolutely frigid and the house is clearly designed for summer, not winter. They gave us a couple of heaters, but it's not much use!Read more
