I flew to Pisa airport with a view to driving around and exploring some of the Tuscan countryside but my first stop was at a little town on the coast called Rosignano, where my friend Paul kept his boat, an old character of a trawler yacht, called India November. He took me out to lunch in style at the Railway Station Café. It was a small cosy tavern attached to the platform with walls covered with art work, all of which was for sale. There was no menu just the day’s catch from the sea. Paul asked for the antipasti and what followed was a feast for the senses and set the tone for my whole trip.
