Arrived in Italy and we have some exciting news for our followers in Norway!!


Our sail from Lefkada, Greece was okay. We used about 30 hours and we arrived in Gallipoli on the heel of Italy. We drove through Italy when we went to Greece to fill up our boat, and both of us has been in Italy seperately once each. We are looking forward to spend more time in Italy this time.

We arrived after sunset and that is always exciting if we can see where to go. But after some help from a Italian boat and a French boat we were moored at the town quay. None of them spoke English so it was an interesting conversation. It is possible to stay at the town quay for 5 days without paying.

The next day it was Wednesday and I read that every Wednesday it is a farmers market in town. I love farmers market! It was exciting walking around in a new town in a new country. We had to walk through town for 2,7 km but it was easy to find the market.

At the market! It was so many nice fruits, vegetables, nuts, fish, cheese, and many other things.

And the smell when you are walking around the market… hmmm.. specially where you find olives.

We bought different things from the market, and we got some extra cheese we didn`t knew what it was..

Later that day we decided to walk around the old town. The entrance is close to the town quay.

On the other side of the town quay there is a small marina for smaller boats. But it would be fantastic to stay there for a night!

We walked around the old town first because it was nice in the sunset.

2024 02 28 16.45.02

Astor had more open eyes than I so he saw all theese black cats between the promenade and the sea. Actually it was good I didn`t saw them, it would have been a problem to leave them there.

2024 02 28 16.47.55

Some of them tried to climb up to Astor.

2024 02 28 16.49.22

Old town lies on a island outside main town.

2024 02 28 16.55.46

On the east side of old town there is a harbour for fishingboats.

2024 02 28 16.58.47

As normal at this time of the year, it is quiet in old towns.

2024 02 28 16.59.52

But many beautiful buildings..
