I suppose it is tempting fate to blog about how great things are. Really you are setting yourself up to come down to earth with a bump. Not a big thud thankfully, but definitely a glitch or two over recent days. One reason why we chose to stay at Camping Toscana Village, apart from its proximity to Pisa airport, was its bus links to Pontdera. I fancied visiting the Vespa museum at the Piaggio factory. Google maps even marked the bus-stop in Montopoli with the number and links to the timetable. The girls in reception however seemed unaware of the existence of a bus link and persuaded us to visit the place when we left, assuring us that the Piaggio site had big car parks.
|Only Google Earth can show the size of the Piaggio works - including the test track.|
|OK, we failed to make it to the museum - but the girl in reception's Vespa is truly a beauteous specimen|

|Drizzle, cart-track and VERY steep!|
|Lovely corner pitch|
