West Europe Road Trip - Wicked Van

Carlo picked us up after we arrived on the bus and took us to the hotel where the car was parked.

After a quick once around the car and usual explanations we were on the road with some instructions on how to get to the nearest electrical store to secure a power inverter and Sat Nav.

Now I know that Sat Nav's kind of take the challenge out of a road trip, but without it we would be relying on maps, my sense of direction, and the girls ability to translate the destination on the map into a series of lefts and rights.

Needless to say I think the 169 euro has already paid for itself with out ability to find some amazing places along the way without the arguing on the way to them.

Unfortunately Carlo didn't have the same navigation abilities and we were soon on the wrong road heading away from the shop.

We did a u turn at the next toll exit and went back to where we entered.

As we exit the toll Alyce put the ticket through.



We pushed the "Ask for Assistance" button which was shortly followed by a barrage of Italian, and then a ticket which then opened the toll.

Unfortunately the ticket said that we had 14 days to pay the total or legal fee's would follow.

We headed over to the station and with the help of a friendly lass had the payment void and we could move on once again.
