Italian

European cities

At last we leave! After several days of organization and meetings to choose destination, route and stages of our journey to the tour Year 2005, we get on the camper that will take us first to Copenhagen and then to Amsterdam, to spend the last day of the past year and the first of the tour one. We are six and, since in this period it appears that the Italians have all decided to spend the holidays renting a motorhome, we have to arrange with a 5 +1 (five persons plus one, usually a child). As the saying goes, "The good weather you can see from morning...", and in fact: the morning of December 27 we reach the car parking, jump on the campervan and turn it on to heat it while we complete all burocratic formality (and you know, in Italy there are not few). The problem is that the rear heater does not work properly because the mask that protects the pilot flame comes off lighting the flame off with each breath. The owner fixs the problem and everything seems okay. We lost an hour of time but at least our "home" on four wheels should keep us warm in polar climate of northern Europe.
