We're getting to know the A14 very well. Apart from a few accidentally-on-purpose detours, it's this one road all day. But we're on a mission - we've got to get to Bari by 9 or we miss the ferry, and the next one is not for 3 days. There is a plan B: back up the whole of Italy, through Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia and into Albania that way. That should take about 2 days, so definitely a bonus.
But that's not gonna happen. We're about 3 hours, and we're not planning any more unexpected events... Speaking of which, the 'hell' squadron have had another set back- a flat tyre on Mario Katy. Not a major issue, you might think, but when your on a tight schedule, no ones checked the spare and you can't find a jack these things can be a deal breaker!
We've now on the coast road, so things may get a bit more interesting from here- and ahead the ferry to Albania, and we all know what that means...
...actually we don't. If you do, please let us know asap. We really don't have a clue what we're doing.
