and the journey begins
We landed in Rome, picked up our car and got on the road to Il Pellicano. You never feel refreshed when you get to Europe so we stopped to fill up the car and fill up on caffeine. You can find good coffee at the roadside gas stations.
Took a long nap and then of course it was time for the next meal. We ate at the hotel restaurant that boasts at 2 star Michelin rating. The water menu made me laugh. We went with vintage Italian still water.
The olive oil they served at the table was amazing. Straight from Sicily. The big question of the night is do we just pick up olive oil bottles at every stop and bring them home? This starter was hake with oysters and a shiso sauce.
We drank a bottle of local white wine and to wrap up the meal we went with the cheese plate. I hate to say it but the cheese was my favorite. Each cheese was paired with something from honey to fruit. Really delicious.
Off to bed and am pretty sure we will be on European time by morning.
