Considering Italy has so much coastline, we'd not seen very much of it, so the next town we typed into the Sat Nav was the seaside resort of Rimini.
With a reputation for being a party capital in summer, with an active prostitution scene to boot, it wasn't the sort of place we'd usually visit. Our early opinions weren't improved with advertisements for half a dozen different sex shops as we approached. It was becoming increasingly commercialised with amusement parks and a safari park, however the winter weather meant these activities had pretty much closed down and we were eventually able to park and have lunch with a sea view out of the van window.
Poppy's improved health meant she could make it the 200m along the pavement, through the 'beach adventure playground' onto the open sand and down to the sea. Her eyes lit up, her tail began to wag and she galloped around looking for things to play with! There was a biting wind so we didn't stay out for long but it was wonderful to be at the seaside again!Read more
