Oh, Massimo... very beautiful places, indeed!

So, don't be much surprised if all the Celestians will charter a big aeroplane some day and fly with VanVliet-Airlines to your hometown in Tuscany....:wink:

:D For your information, it's easy to see groups of german people which travel around here with caravans to swim into water, with comprensive envy from the indians, since usually we wait one or two months furthers before to swim. Instead, german people seems very refractaries to the (still) coldness of the water. :wink:

FYI, in order to avoid misunderstandings, I forgot of saying that the photoshots, except Wiki's "California" beach, spans just 10 km of radius.

thin legs, big bellies, freckles...? Oh yes; these people are well known here; it's always the same group: every year we put them into their caravan-boxes (with a trunk full of six-pack-beers) and send them to your beautiful beaches. Just to give the people from Tuscany something to laugh. 8)

Thank you bh; fortunately such zones have been inserted into the regional park together with the isles, so the abitative pressures are now regolamentated. They are open to all, of course; just "speculators" and "free buildings" are banned.

:wink: Absolutely they are welcome. First, because there are lots of areas dedicated to them and to their "motorized" services; second, german people are polites in their customs, so when they left the areas, expecially the gulf above, the gulf remains like in the pines' photoshot; 8) italians aren't well-learned on this aspect :| . Third, there are several campings completely managed by deutch people which organize summer holidays for the Holland, thus the mixing of folks get good results for all. We have a strong tradition of intercourses with the nothern european people. A bit less with the englishmen, they prefers to stay more in the major internal artistic centers respect to that on the coast. Maybe for the wines? :P
