ITALY

... who knew you would turn out to be the holy land of gluten free products? Pizza, pasta, even croissants: Katharina asked for it and you delivered. We got stuck with Boggy’s first breakdown and besides being totally frustrated we asked ourselves: Italy, really?! Of alle places, this is the one that doesn’t really have to offer anything to us while waiting for Boggy to be fixed. You proved us wrong and offered la dolce vita: kilometers of empty beaches, beautiful small bays and a trullo with our private pool on an olive plantation. And let’s not forget that Katharina drank her weight in Aperol Spritz and Bjoern ate his in pizza. 

 

Mille Grazie!

THE VLOG

We are finally taking off with our Defender!

Who would have thought?! After 3 months of reconstructing our Defender, with many ups and downs and a handful of mental breakdowns, we have actually started our adventure. Bogdan is ready and so are we. With zero experience in camping, very limited knowledge about cars and no idea where the journey will take us, we are heading south.....

Adjusting to a life on the road

After our first night at Lago di Garda, we proceeded through beautiful Tuscan landscapes, where the owner of a campsite cut us a new spot with his machete and then started to settle in to life on the road at Lago di Bracciano close to Rome. We had a lovely spot right at the lake and 24 hours of heavy rainfall washed off the first bit of our lives back home.

Our Defender has its first breakdown and we are stuck in Italy

Boggy had his first breakdown (before we had one) and we had to learn how to go with the flow. Trying to make the best out of the time, we explored the Italian coast on a scooter and rented a nice Trullo home for a couple of days.
