Finally a bit of time to clean my computer. Not only a polish and shine but clearing out the desktop and removal of several ancient files that I no longer need or read. Before I chuck this one in the trash I thought to share it with you. I have no note of who sent it, it was a few years ago. I chuckled re-reading it, was it a wind up? – No, but at the same time it reminds me that sometimes I am amazed that guys actually are able to get out of bed by themselves in the morning!
“Are there mosquitoes?
Does the suite have a ‘fridge, pan scrub, washing up liquid, drying cloth, kettle?
Do you supply a towel for use by the pool?
Where is the best place to get the cheapest petrol (name and location)?
Where is the supermarket you’d recommend I use?
Is there an outdoor market that you consider to be the best place to buy fruit?
How frequently do you come across hand-held speed radar?
Where are the fixed speed traps located that you are aware of?
Credit card skimming: how cautious should I be at ATMs, petrol stations and in restaurants?
Are there any ZTL cameras in towns I should be wary of?
Are there any towns, villages, other places of interest or roads with great views that I should make a point of visiting when travelling:
From Rimini to Urbino
From Urbino to Bevagna
From Bevagna to you.
(I’ve been to Assisi, Cortone, Montone, Gubbio and Perugia before).
I arrive at Rimini airport. Is it big/small, easy to drive out of?
My flight from Perugia airport on Thur 24th leaves at 11.20am. Bearing in mind rush hour traffic (perhaps taking the wrong exit and wandering aimlessly trying to get back on track), the need to find a garage, fill the petrol tank up, return the hire car – when do you suggest I leave your house that morning?
The tank needs to be full when checked back in by the car hire firm at Perugia airport. Where should I fill the car up before returning it to Perugia airport (name and location if you happen to know of somewhere)”
I seem to remember the guy booked two nights…. ah the joys!
