We are member of Agri Camper Italy, so we have the opportunity to choose between a large number of farmers that have opened their land for an overnight stay, provided you buy some of their goods. It is the same deal as France-Passion. The only downside is there aren't many Italian farmers along the coast, and we want to stay as close to de coastline as we can get.

We find one, in Albenga. We drive through a greenhouse area. Greenhouses and little herb in little pots everywhere you look. It feel a lot like Aalsmeer in the Netherlands. It is flat, hyperorganised by Italian standards. The Agricamper spot is located at the edge of the town. We buy homemade white cheese and homemade white sparkling wine. We are allowed to stay there for free for as long as we want. We aquire some firewood and promise to make ourselves a nice soup with veggies we bought earlier.


And since we are allowed to build fires, we hop on our bikes and go hunting for some meat from the local butcher. We find a nice fresh piece of "moow". It is going to be a nice diner for sure!



While chopping the uberhard olivewood (can't even carve a spoon from that) I get an idea for some music, which will take shape later that night. I grab the camera and start filming the poor little chopsticks. below the result.


A Friend.

All that bbq scent attracts one of the dogs from the owner. Probably an old dog, because he is a little stiff. He has a very peculiar large collar with all kinds of information. He is a little shy but overwhelmingly friendly. A beautiful dog in its haydays. We will give him some leftovers for sure later tonight.

A Friend.
