Yes Disco, did just that last month. Do Pompei, Herculaneum, Sorrento, Positano and try the Vesuvius hike. A week is plenty IMHO. We were based out of the Hilton Sorrento and rented a car from Avis. Just make sure there's a spare tyre in the car, had a flat and it was a nightmare. We did an ice cream making class with the kids in Sorrento that was kitschy and fun. Da Vincenzo in Positano was amazing for food. Shout me for any more detail.

Government has just given Sweden a travel corridor…. a country with virtually no lockdown, no masks, no house arrests, no quarantining for its returning citizens… and a case rate of less than Germany’s or any of the other harsh lockdown countries that treated Sweden like a pariah…

Hmmm…..

Almost seems like Sweden were right all along.

I’ll be crossing the bridge from Copenhagen to Malmo tomorrow evening…

Whereabouts in Cornwall are you staying? I'd recommend booking everything in advance as they won't let you in anywhere without a booking.
