We should be there with Tasmanian friends, 8th through 12th.  Rather than random bumping into each other, I would suggest a time and location to try and gather briefly.  I don't yet know of any formal activity schedule.  So, anything we plan might still change at the last minute.

I propose Friday, 2pm, under the huge pine tree (cypress?) in the center of Piazza Garibaldi.
Do a Google Map for coordinates N45.91274, E9.31663 and ask for a street view.
If anyone else has a better day, time, location I'm fully open.

An interesting tool that I recently heard of was "what3words". By the description given I would be guessing "barstool.intensivel y.reference". Google what3words and put the 3 words in the search. You may be meaning the other side of the tree storefronts.quells. exhibitions or I might have the location incorrect.

This comes in handy in a phone conversation as you just give the three words and it narrows it down to a 3x3 meter square. Very handy in a crowd.

Good idea!

As for me, I don't presently plan to arrive that early in the day.
Perhaps schedule a meeting also on Saturday? Same place and hour -

‘Got a call yesterday that my coat is done.. :thumb:





A bit disappointing that I could not get the script sewn on as envisaged…


But I’ll get over it I guess. I hope I’m not mistaken for the guy selling gelato in the village square.. :rolleyes:

Hmmmm….
Therein lies the problem David my dear….
Never mind, I’m sure a steady diet of pasta and red wine in Italy, will see me right.. :wink:

I’m currently engineering a plan to meet frans belgium from here on WG somewhere in well……..Belgium…!
That will (hopefully) be my first stop on my trek North from Calais on Sep 3 or 4.
Then up into the Netherlands to see some more friends that I met in Pompeii in 2019.

It’s starting to look a bit like this



Then (something like) this…



Now all this might work out to be really beaut, because I see that the trip up and around to Mandello is kind of in the 1,600 km bracket and my Norge has 197,300 km on the clock…
So the plan to turn over 200,000 k at Mandello might just come to fruition…! :popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn:

I have an room in Dervio, some distance from Mandello up the lake, for Friday and Saturday nights.  A friend and I will be riding roads in/from Switzerland on Friday morning but will hope to make it there by 2 PM.

Lovely..!
Very keen to meet you. I’m thinking that it will be to all our benefits, to monitor WG and PM’s over the duration.
Dervio looks like a nice ride up from Mandello.

I actually set off a car alarm yesterday as I walked past…!  :embarrassed: :embarrassed: :embarrassed:
Yet I do maintain, that it suits me in that it has a certain understated and quiet dignity.. :rolleyes:
