Lessons learned from cycling in Italy by Matic Golob
Always pay attention to the road or you might end up in a river. I almost did.
When on a trip like this, buy mosquito repellent!
Italians are so fabulous, but they don’t speak english! They have great wine though.
Powder your ass all the time, when cycling so much.
Don’t try to camp in italian vineyards, they have guard dogs.
When in Venice, buy a map or get lost.
When cycling, prepare to be shitted on by birds, toilet flush sprinkled by buses, and to be a living insect stopper.

We don’t care if the Harlem Shake is sooo February 2013, we think this video of Couchsurfers in Italy doing their own version is adorable.

Couchsurfingowa noc w Trapani

Sama nie wiem, jak to się stało, że po pół godzinie rozmawialiśmy, jakbyśmy się znali od lat. Wspólny temat rozmowy, jakim naturalnie były podróże, Sycylia i Couchsurfing zagwarantowały nam słowotok trwający do czwartej rano. Gianni, będący w społeczności CS zasłużonym członkiem, przyniósł nam pamiątkowe bransoletki, naklejki i mapy. Udzielił nam profesjonalnej porady, jak zwiedzić Trapani, za którą to radą następnego dnia ufnie podążyłyśmy. Gianni ma firmę turystyczną zajmującą się zakwaterowaniem i organizacją wycieczek po zachodniej Sycylii. Jeśli wybieracie się w te strony, to gorąco wam polecam jego usługi. Takich ludzi po prostu warto wspierać, warto ich znać, warto dać im zarobić.
