It all started in Sorrento when we were unable to stay in Naples, but thank goodness this happened.
Making our way back to Rome we stayed in an Airbnb where the shower didn't work and we had to work with a tap.
It was the worst night sleep for us, when people were in the hall way yelling and screaming and the beds were so ridiculously comfortable that we couldn't get comfy and also checking the time every hour.
Eventually we left the place making our way to Rome Termini station to go to Naples (2 hour trip) for our first change then to Napoli Mergellina to Salerno - another 2 hours - meeting a very nice young man who was travelling as well and guess what? He happened to be from Australia also... Surprise surprise. Lucky for us he was super sexy. Yum.
We then caught a train from Salerno to Reggio Calabria for 4 hours where we meet two ladies from America who were so funny and made our train ride hilarious. Bless.
We made it to Calabria, getting to our B&B and we ring the door bell 3 times and 3 times lucky it opened.
Struggling up 2 flights of stairs with our bags we came to a counter with a gentleman who didn't speak any English but took us to the sister B&B to consult with the other manager and he too didn't speak English. Cool.
So trying to communicate and waiting for the lady who organises everything to come we are all sitting and chatting and worked out why us girls were here etc etc.
Both getting an awkward feeling I looked for an Airbnb to find something in San Giovanni. Once we found a place, we called her so she was able to translate what we are doing to one of the managers. (In the mean time we were both so annoyed about this all and we ready to get the first flight to Malta)
Eventually we figured it all out and we go to the station get our ticket wait for our train. Get on the train squished between our seats and luggage
We met with our Air Bnb host who picked us up from the station and we are now sitting on our bed keen for a shower and sleep.
