[ 04:27 saturday 23 august – haggerston road ]

i’ve spent the last two hours working out how i can get to stromboli by sunday evening and booking tickets accordingly. finally it’s done. the trenitalia website (italian state train operator) nearly drove me bonkers with its byzantine booking system. i have a stack of reservation details sitting on my printer as follows:

– train ticket from london kings cross to sheffield
– air ticket from east midlands airport to rome
– train ticket from rome to naples
– hydrofoil from naples to stromboli
– hydrofoil from stromboli to naples
– air ticket from naples to london gatwick

right now a week on stromboli is a welcome prospect. i might even sneak round to tiny ginostra on the other side of the island for the second half of the week. my friend matteo is renting a house there and invited me to come and stay.
