Getting out of Naples is a relief. We make our way up north towards Rome with the intention of finding a nice campsite along the way to recharge our batteries, fill up water and relax for a couple of days.
Spending the first night on a public car park in Sperlonga, Logan is trying to snatch power from a socket underground but the connections don’t fit. He is being caught by some curious Italians; they stop right next to him and just stare but don’t say anything. They stared before, when we had dinner too. They all stare. All the time. It’s very intimidating.
The next morning we drive into Nord-Sud Camp here in Sperlonga, a nice place. We are located only meters from the beach and while Logan follows his urge of running up mountains, I’m taking care of blogging.
Once he’s back we are going for a lovely stroll on the beach and I’m going for my first swim in the Mediterranean Sea since 2009. It’s very refreshing since the water temperature is still somewhere under 20 degrees but it’s fun!
Other than that Sperlonga is a pretty dead town at this time of the year. There are not many people here yet but the camping prices have increased from about 10-15 Euros (North and East Italy) to 28-36 Euros (West).
