After a few days in the Castilli area of Rome I headed off to the Abruzzo Region, to the mountains and National Parks of the area. The weather wasn't good with low cloud and heavy rain for most of the day spoiling the views. My first night was spent in Acciano at a motorhome sosta close to the centre of town.
After a quiet night I woke to a beautiful sunny morning, enjoyed breakfast then set off along the narrow, twisty mountain roads reaching at one point 2400 metres above sea level before dropping down again to the town of Pescasseroli, a beautiful town with lovely old buildings, where I stopped for lunch. After lunch and a wander round I continued on until I came to Valletta Barrera and another small sosta to spend the night.
Pescasseroli was a picturesque town and well worth a visit.

As I drove through the Abruzzo National park there were many signs warning that speed kills bears. Unfortunately I didn't see any.
I was the only camper in the Valletta Barrea camper sosta and after a quiet night I drove a kilometre to another sosta by Lake Barrea, another quiet spot and a good starting point for walks around the lake.

This deer with impressive antlers came by within a few metres of my camping spot to enjoy the grass.
It seems I've been travelling all my life. For the past eight years I've been following a simple, nomadic lifestyle full time touring in a camper van and meeting with other like minded travellers.
