A fruite stall in Naples

A day off in Napoli

As I was rambling in the newsletter, I somehow got too much into my head about dogs after my first day biking. This is definitely not a qualified statement, warning people about cycling in Puglia. But sometimes this happens. My main goal is to bike, to see Europe and to have a good time. Being super tense all the time is not part of it. But I'm very sure Apulia is great for biking, just this time not for me.

I took the train from Grottaglie to Taranto and got a place there. These Italian buildings and their hallways are amazing! I took it very slow, got some crisps and actually fell asleep quite early. This is definitely a habit that is forming. But I always get up early as well. Even more than usual, around 5:30am.

From Taranto I went to Naples. The regional trains are great in Italy! I arrived and it was pouring, like hard. So, again, lazy day. But I got a pizza. Of course!

The next day was fantastic, full of sunshine and Napoli is a great city to walk around. I usually climb the next hill that I can find to have a good overview of the city. One thing I love in Italy is, that you can get a coffee at 6 am. Easily. It's a really good one too. And usually around a 1.50 Euro. Berlin could learn from that.

Here some impressions.
