Personal Hygiene 26#

On the Road Again 26#

The beaches around Rimini stretch for ever but might as well be mined. Staked out with regimented sun umbrellas and loungers - ‘divieto d’accesso’, NO ENTRY greets penniless students in need of a douche.
As a hitch unfolds personal hygiene suddenly tops the agenda, especially having an attractive girl in tow. Grab any opportunity you can - a basin at the back of a filling station, a mountain stream or the loo in a restaurant as there are no hotel comforts on our tiny budget. That’s why a free night’s accommodation in a sympathetic person’s house is worth it’s weight in gold.
