Heaven is a place on earth

We have seen some beautiful places in Sibillini National Park.  From Sarnano we cycled some steep roads into the mountains; tried to photograph a few of the wonderful butterflies and wondered why there were so few tourists here as we ate our picnic next to a rustic stone 11th Century Abbey.

The photograph shows the Piano Grande, a stunningly large plateau at 1,300 metres above sea level; a mass of wild flowers, grasshoppers, Wheatears and butterflies, ringed by high mountains:  A beautiful place that makes you feel happy to be.

As we drive we’ve been listening to and rocking along to the new Green Day album.

  1. The Independent had the "50 Best Campsites In Europe" this weekend.

    In at Number 9 was "Keswick Camping and Caravanning Club Site, Cumbria" in Crow Park (presumably recommended for noise; tree fires and 4x4s rallying around the site and tipping over in Derwentwater).

    There's one recommended in Croatia (Number 30) which “... surprises with its intimate feel ... for 3000 pitches ...".

    Then there's a picture of one in France where the caravans (presumably "Marauder”, “Sprite”, and “Viking Goth Slayer”) are so close together that swinging animals around would do serious damage.
