Day 9 San Tuesday 11the June 2013 Remo to Genoa

Did not get much sleep the night before but at least I managed to get the first installment of the blog done.

This morning started at 7 am for me. Did the usual routine of washing, packing, eating breakfast, checking the fuel pre-filter and engine oil before setting off north east for the Italian port city of Genoa.

Slept in the car briefly for 30 minutes at a service station and drank a very strong but nice caffe before continuing the car journey.

The view along the Italian coastline is just beautiful and I had some of the car journey recorded on video.using my little in-car video camera.

Reached Genoa at around 13.15 pm. The car park area had lots of Africans selling their wares to tourists and there were lots of suspicious people hanging around the place so that put me on my guard to be careful on my walkabout in town.

Had an expresso in a very beautiful traditional cafe, it had fitted cabinets filled with all sorts of bottles containing alcohol, it also used a very antiquated looking cash machine but most of all the staff were very friendly. The cakes of different sizes and shaped were also very tempting. Shame I did not photograph the place.

The town itself is very interesting, mainly pedestrianised shopping area with some very beautiful shops in very old classical buildings.

After 1 hour in town is was back on the road this time I had set the SatNav for the nearest campsite, the 'Campeggio Genova Est' which was about 20 km away from town. Address is Via Marconi - Localita CASSA 16031 Bogliasco (GE) - Italy.


The camp site is located in the hilltop overlooking lots of trees, a motorway and a very quiet cemetery. I should not be disturbed in the middle of the night.
