From our Hotel in 'Cassino' with 'Monte Cassino' in background on hill.
 

We hope to find Uncle Bill Hussey's grave in Cassino in the morning, if it doesn't get too hot too early.

Today was an absolute stinker well over 40c and very humid, walking around Florence and anywhere we stopped was very hard work.    Cassino is our most southern point, from here we start heading back towards Paris & Calais, then London & home. After this update I will try and find somewhere in Rome for a couple of nights, then Venice via 'Assisi'

Internet here is a little hard to find, sorry for the quietness.

 

Bye for now all
