Message:  This time to the Isle of Capri. Well,to Naples and then by boat. Would much rather go by car but Capri is an eight square mile rock off of the bay of Naples. No way are we leaving our car in Naples! We are hoping to get from the airport to the boat without getting bashed over the head and robbed.

I worked on the island for about seven months back in 1974. I would probably still be there if it hadn`t have been for a young Austrian chap turning up on my doorstep one day and asking me to marry him......well,sort of. He was so shy that he got his friend to do it for him.
I have some friends there. One I saw for a couple of hours back in 1994 and the other I saw in 1986. I`ll also be seeing a Swedish girl I knew when I was there and I haven`t seen her for 34 years. I hope she won`t be too shocked when she sees me.

The island is sooooo beautiful!
