After another couple of hours uncomfortable sleep in the front seats of our car, we woke again.
Feeling very low, hungry, thirty.
We set of again, after a breakfast of fruit pastels'.
Just keep driving, get as far down the country as we could, oh shit, we are going to run out of petrol.
Around Pescara, we saw another service station, this one had an ATM.
Fingers crossed, and saying a few prayers, BINGO, it accepted our cards, we had cash again.
Right more petrol, and some food, we bought some sandwiches and coffee.
On the road again, feeling better, drive a bit further, turned of the motorway at Vasto, and paid our out standing tickets, lets find somewhere to stay for the night.
Signs for camp-site, lets follow them, took us down to the most beautiful beach on the planet (at the time!!)
Standing on the beach, relaxed, feeling a lot better, still tired, and the camp-site was closed for the winter.
Lets head into Vasto.
Just in time, a thunder storm closing in, lets find somewhere to stay, got a room at hotel San Marco, it was a really nice room, got cleaned up.
Next the heaven opened, and we had torrential rain, it ended up like a river running down the street outside our hotel.
All cleaned up, rain stopped, lets explore and find somewhere to have a proper meal, went into a café across from the hotel, had a few pints of beer.
Took a stroll about Vasto, took some pictures, then back to Hotel to get a couple of hours sleep in a bed
Set the alarm clock, so we wouldn't sleep straight through till morning.
Got ourselves organised, now to get ourselves a proper meal.
Lets go into the Irish bar, it was packed out, ordered our drinks and asked to see menu.
We both got burgers and chips.
Had a couple of pints again, then back to hotel, for a good nights sleep.
Above is a car that was parked out the front of the hotel during the thunder storm, we thought it was going to get washed away.
