    Hi rookyvanner! You shouldn't be embarrassed about your hobbies, as long as you're enjoying yourself, that's all that matters! Now you have another hobby, your van! Hope you get the leak sorted, lots of folk on here will be happy to give advice. Welcome to the forum!

    Welcome, love your username! Though given your first trip experience perhaps Leaky Vanner might have been more appropriate!

    Then you are made for Italy, even for normal folk superb, but it's the land of the bell towers.

    We're off in May for the "lost count of the number" time.

    At risk of being boring, in the rest of the world they just chime the bells but in the UK we ring what is called full circle ringing. Less complicated than it sounds but full circle ringing was unique to the UK. Nowadays that isn't strictly true as full circle ringing has spread now as far as Australia.
