On this day 2 years ago a very good friend of mine got me a wee present, his name was Smiley, and a crazy adventure started, Smiley was my original travel Companion, but with him there wouldn't be a One Man and His Turtle. We have come along way, been to a few countries, a rehab and made lots of memories.
One thing that I learnt from having Smiley and Mikey is people look at me and think I've gone crazy or have something wrong with me, but for me they are my companions, a comfort that helps me with aniexty, a conversation starter, basically they aren't just a quirky object, they mean a lot to me and they bring/brought joy to people we have met a long the way.

Basilicata, VENOSA (PZ) - CASTELLO ARAGONESE - Pirro del Balzo Orsini come molti altri nobili del Quattrocento era rimasto folgorato dal Castelnuovo di Napoli, sede palaziale del regno degli Aragona. Pertanto, il castello di Venosa, al pari di quello di Matera, era stato concepito proprio sul modello del Maschio Angioino.
