Another deserted field - Troyes
The Alps
Flight Level 85

Once we'd managed to get some fuel after a backtrack to Troyes, we spent the night in Lyon, then set off the next morning for Italy. This involved crossing the Alps at something like 9,000 ft, by far the highest I've ever taken the aircraft and, considering we were up to maximum all-up weight or a little bit more, quite an achievement for the little aircraft.

We arrived in Albenga and took the afternoon off, mostly spent in beach bars and restaurants. Lobster pasta - scrummy!

Next morning for the final leg we departed East across the Med aiming for Elba. I wish we hadn't! The landing fees were low, but the fuel was almost £1.80 per litre, as against £1.20 over in the UK.

The idea came up for an aerial Safari down to visit our friend Riccardo (African Eagle) in Latina, Italy.

He organised a landing strip at nearby Aprilia, marked out with white-painted wine containers, to which we flew in a day and a half. My other pilot outbound was Nigel. Sandra opted to fly with Ryan Air

(Not a comment on my flying I'm assured. More to do with her having done a similar trip in out 80knot aircraft before. You have to love small aircraft flying to spend that long in one)

Here's an initial batch of images.

I'd never been to Venice before, Sandra has.

I had preconceptions of what it would be like. They were wrong, it was better.

Three days, not nearly long enough.
