Saturday 28 June 2008: Well my bags are packed, I'm ready to go
Up at 4.30. Edinburgh to Stansted, then Stansted to Treviso. At Treviso, the car rental people have no record of the child seats we've ordered. Aargh. Don't you just love the internet? Drive to the campsite, hang around for ages, eventually get checked in. Discover caravan is, er, compact and bijou (with the emphasis on compact). Take excited lads to swimming pool, only to discover it's just closed. But then unwind on the beach: blissed-out floaty blue sky warm sea...aaaaah.
Scoff a pizza, get eaten by mosquitoes but don't care. The holiday has begun.
