Florence to Amalfi Coast, Italy

Today was expected to be our long day in the bus. Little did we expect that the bus would hit a brick in the centre of the freeway and end up with a flat tire. We eventually ended up at our hotel rather later than expected. It ended up being a long day since I had started the day early with the street sweepers.

This unlucky Fiat driver was following our bus when our bus ran over a brick in the middle of the freeway. A piece of the disintegrating tire bounced off the Fiat’s hood. The Fiat driver swerved and hit something else and ended up with a flat tire to add to the confusion. Thankfully, we were not far from a roadside pull-off but this incident kept us there for about 4 1/2 hours.
