Day 1, Country 1 of the 777 Adventure: ITALY

7 countries in 7 days with £700, 777 Adventure, ADVENTURE -

Day 1, Country 1 of the 777 Adventure: ITALY

In a nutshell:

For more information... keep on reading below...

So the night before we picked up the van, we had planned to stay with a couch surfer the night before the 777 Adventure begun to keep costs down.

How pleasant does that look?

(Couchsurfing.com  if you haven't heard of it is a cool way to crash for free on people floor, free sofa or bed. Just do your due diligence when picking a host and read between the lines if you know what I mean but yeah we found at least one decent one in Rome.) 

Although from where we landed @Ciampino Airport the only non creepy guy that replied was the other side of Rome in the opposite direction to where we had to pick the van up. Also dubious about having to meet in his pals restaurant. (Guilt EATING/SPENDING!) which would have been bad for budget but

Bulgarian phrase: "Make my tummy smile" 

We decided on a whim (standard 2Anoo practice) to head south towards Anzio and the nearest train station to the van collection point. Which when announced on Italian train tannoy sounded epic! “Villa Claudia”.

Anyway on route we tanked some cafeteria pasta an what we thought was savoury risotto…. We soon realised sifting through the amaretto biscuits & Tina revealing that the label said zucchero. That we were tucking into a hearty Pudding. 

€10 for the shuttle bus from the airport to one central station

€12 on the food & a big bottle of water (the Risotto last 2 days because neither of us enjoyed it but we ate it 

€7.20 for the train

€45 for the B&B on the same street as The Wicked Camper collection Depot

So already hacking into the £700 budget before the official 777 Adventure began but needs must.

Train arrived at VILLA CLAUDIA

Our legend of a Ex Professional Poker playing host Massimo which is Italian for Maximus (cheers Gladiator) was driving past the station, spotted us ladened with backpacks coming off the train so shouted us and offered us a lift. 

So after an epic sleep in a proper bed and an epic wash in a proper bath we were up and at em! Ready to attack the mega drive from: Anzio, Italy to Edinburgh, Scotland 

The 777Adventure was Officially Underway

Day 1: 

Anzio - Roma - Vatican City - Santa Marinella - Montepescali - Pisa - Massaciuccoli

7 Hrs driving

262miles covered 

all at a rough cost of €56.50 (£47.89)

With our rough budget of spending no more than £100 (€117.98) a day 

left us with €61.48 (£52.11) for sustenance, which me and Tina had very different opinions of.

With places and people along the way we wanted to see the route was forever changing.

We actually never sat down and planned a route before we set off. 

I just banged all 7 countries into the Michelin Route planner to get rough costings of Tolls, fuel, distance etc. 

And roughly figured out that covering a distance of about 250miles a day and living of a budget of €42 (£36) a day between us after fuel & Toll costs we could manage all of this on £700 (€825.87).  

For the 1st time ever we bought a sim and traveled with internet so had google on hand literally 24/7 The Sim cost £27 from ThreeUK with all you can eat Data and Feel At Home capability making it easier to stay in touch while your abroad. Covered us in all 7 Countries as we went. 

 

We also had a temperamental out of date Sat Nav and a Map of Europe to keep us right when all the batteries died but through listening to locals and searching out green or by blue bits on the map to camp at night we were set. 

Folk on roads in Rome were a little mental. A zebra crossing is a game of chicken every time and unexpectedly the car doesn’t always win. There's some hard charging old Italian ladies over there. 

The people not in cars were awesome, chatty and kind. Safe to say we loved Italy! 

 

The Sights:

 

The Colosseum blew us away

The Vatican just felt ancient and had an ambience about it (& Theme music played in St Peter’s Square check out the Vlog below) 
Montepescali the Medieval town on a hill we spotted from the motorway
The Leaning Tower of Pisa 
 
Never had any inclination to visit Italy before I started traveling the world.
But once I started out as a global backpacker at 22 visiting all the best spots in the world was all I wanted to do so would ask other travellers where their favourite places where and Italy along with India would come up time and time again. I want to get back to Italy soon but It also solidifies that those unwashed fellow vagabonds where onto something and India when I get there is guna be sick! 

The 777 Adventure continues stay tuned for Switzerland Day 2...

    If you are taking Boniva or Actonel and want to save some money, ask your doctor to change you to the Fosamax because it comes in generic.

    As of July 2009, the most serious reports to the FDA involving Chantix were: 98 suicides in Chantix users and 188 attempted suicides.

    I hope the information here will make people stop and think before the criticism rolls off their tongues and the disapproving looks settle on their faces.

    My experience is that most patients will get some side effects with baclofen but get through them because they can feel beneficial effects and really want to stop alcohol.

    hello

    CS Source – Why no one never leaves

    Counter Strike Condition Zero is the most noted and most played multiplayer game till now. The game is being played in every part of this world in, every gaming cafe, in every PCs and Laptops and even on Nearly every Xbox.
    Counter Strike GO:

    CS Global Offensive is actually a modification of Half-life game which had already been made in the late 1990’s. This online FPS epic is a tactical and reaction based shooter which tests the mind and responsive mastery of the player. Valve Inc took command of developing this game in the 2000s, modified it by adding some new varied and hand made components to the game.

    Counter Strike Condition Zero has been a source of fun for the players since its start. The question is why? Well, it is actually that kind of game which rarely actually gets out of the grace even if one plays it for decades.
    Why CS GO is Interesting:

    One can simply never get used to it since it allows the gamers to customize it according to their experience and preferences. One of the main applications of this freedom is called “hacking”. https://leaguecheats.com – CSGO Hacks are the most annoying item of online FPS and most of the players have actually become the hackers by the time they are great at the game. Some may want to play the game on the newb skill and the maps with which they are used to but the fact is that most of the expert gamers just want some different things to increase their interest in that game. LeagueCheats hacks works on WarGods, WarGodz, sXe injected, https://leaguecheats.com/wiki/esportal-cheats-hacks/ – Esportal, GamersClub, EAC, Challengeme.gg, 99damage, FaceIT, SoStronk, PVPRO, GOLeague, ChallengerMode, FastCup CSGO, Akros, VAC, VACNET, Gfinity, CEVO, ESL, FaceIT Server Side, SMAC, KAC, PopFlash, Kickback, and ZenGaming. https://leaguecheats.com/wiki/ – Buy CSGO Hacks

    So, gamers can edit different maps for their own style or for their root servers. Isn’t it cool that you play every game on multiple maps and then players try to get experience over that particular map by playing repeatedly via epic battles. This in my perspective is the major reason why no one ever gets bored even after lots of rounds.

    The leavels can be customised through multiple programs and software, which are one hundred percent free to use and one can be an expert in it by watching video tutorials. Most people believe that Counter Strike Condition Zero came with a lot of maps but the point is that it came only with some basic maps but over time the mappers created some varied distinct maps on the Valve editor platform which the users have been downloading them via various websites.

    Another thing which is keeping Counter Strike GO replayable and exciting is the option to make your own servers. One can make a separate root for their own friends so that they can have some epic battles with each other or they can invite other clans for a PCW.

    Also, there are also many cool images available which the users can customize and can spray them on the walls or anything else. The spray logos actually show the hold of the particular players or clans.

    In other words customizing CS 1.6 was never so easy before. Now one can never get used to this epic action game.

    Also, within all the games that have various modes are installed several features that are providing the players with noteworthy moments spent in front of the personal computer. Whether you are a teen or already an adult it is impossible not to have played at least for once Global Offensive .
