Living the good life
The first French words me and my brother learned by heart on our holidays in France were: 'bonjour, un baguette, S'il vous plait'.

We cycled off the Greek ferry into the old centre of Ancona in Italy and there it stood blocking our way: a super fancy Maserati funeral car! There are no limits when it comes to style! We are quite the contrast with the Italians, who clearly follow the latest (cycle) fashions. My clothes are stained … Continue reading From complete idiots to real tourists
Memories to keep us going
