That is up for discussion. I certainly won’t be cycling back to the UK. The beer that I have with my friends near Ostuni in Puglia will be well deserved and I won’t be repeating the journey in reverse. That said, I have been thinking about travelling back by ferry. I don’t know if it is possible but it is worth looking into. Brindisi to Greece? Greece to somewhere in France (Marseille?)? Or straight from Italy (Naples) to Sardinia /Corsica and then to France? Across the Pyrenees? And then from the northern Spanisg coast to Portsmouth? Open to suggestions.
