After saying “good-bye” to our family and friends we started a new chapter of Herbie’s World Tour by heading all the way to Genoa, Italy, where we’ll go on board a cruise ship named “Fantastic” by “Grandi Navi Veloci” to Tangier in Morocco, Africa.

We drove about 1,000 miles (1,600 km) through Austria and Italy. We reached our destination, Genoa, on time. Herbie and the camper are waiting outside while we’re connecting to the world wide web at a fast food restaurant.

Tomorrow we’ll celebrate Domi’s 29th birthday somewhere in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. On Monday we’ll arrive in Tangier, Morocco.
