Well, we survived the night! The van was very cold this morning so Kim was up at 7 working out how to turn the gas on for hot water and heating. 10 minutes later she turned it off, worried that the gas bottle wouldn’t last until it could be filled!
Breakfast was in last night’s bar, €8 for four breakfasts – we might have to move here.
The day was spent exploring Siena. We walked from the campsite, leaving the monster van behind.
The weather was fantastic and we had a lovely day wandering around the city. We found it via the longest escalator which saved us a long walk up a hill.
Siena is a fantastic mediaval city with pedestrianised, narrow roads. It has the feel of Nice or Girona. Once you’ve seen one Mediterranean mediaval city you’ve seen them all other than there is pizza on every corner. Lunch was overlooking Piazza del Campo before hunting down the best gelateria in Siena ( Thanks to Gillian for the newspaper supplement recommending it!
Next stop was the Duomo and we toured the cathedral and the panorama across the city

Hi guys, from the pictures so far it looks like you have a bit more sun than back home. If your on electrics or hookup, you should be able to use the hot water and heater without using the gas.
Until tonight we had the luxury of the hookup, tonight it’s the gas bottle and leisure battery – a whole new adventure.
Can we see a picture of the van?
We’ll try and do that later although the van probably deserves a blog of its own – it has ‘personality’!
