As with everywhere on this trip, we arrived in Rome in the dark cloak of night so the next morning, we were more than pleasantly surprised when we looked around us and saw the stunning rolling Roman hills beautifully contrasting that lovely blue sky!

It’s definitely the right motivation you need to get you excited for the day and absolutely ravenous for breakfast!

The Agriturismo villa we were staying in was pretty sweet too!

We were joined by fellow “Great Italian Rickshaw Aventurers“, Giorgia and Lorenzo. They (miraculously) arrived early the night before with enough time to even indulge in wine o’clock!

We’d met Giorgia and Lorenzo back in Milan and stayed with them at the same place in Cinque Terre so they were pretty familiar (and welcome) faces by this point.

We all decided to stick together for the next lap of this journey and see where the roads would take us!

As it turns out, not very far as we drove through our villa’s vineyards and spent the next hour or so pretty much seeing who could get the best photos for ye olde instagram

… and proceeded to lose Lloyd in the vineyard.

In the end, the group shots won the lot!

Until we got shoo’ed away by the farm dog for being too noisy.

A fuel stop later, we headed out to open Italian roads. Making yet another pit stop when we happened upon this amazing lake. As it turns out, this is another one of those experiences that would totally pass you by if you were driving in a car. You definitely can’t beat rickshaw’ing to make you stop and see so much more on your journey across Italy.

Before long though tummies started rumbling and so, we headed off in search for lunch…

… as aptly guided by Giorgia and Lorenzo.

Lunch by the way, ended up being rather fantastic and in the most unexpected of places. More on that in an upcoming post! 🙂
