What a lovely site, the southern most tip of Italy as we sailed in, Calabria! Then we had to board a pilot to go through the Messina Straight between Italy and Sicily, it is very narrow and you could clearly see all the beaches, homes and sites on either side, about 4.00p.m. in the afternoon then around 9.30p.m. we sailed passed Stromboli and no sight of the active volcano. Friday morning docked in Salerno, what a beautiful town this is, in fact all these towns are gorgeous burrowed into the edge of the mountains that surround the coast of Italy. Had a few jobs to do here, get sim cards, stock up in the supermarket, wine, beers etc. Chilled out with a fantastic coffee watching the world go by. Every corner you walk around are some amazing buildings.
