The NGO Save the Children says that there has been a 39 percent drop in the number of unaccompanied minors who arrived in Italy in 2017, compared with previous year. Over 15,730 minors crossed the Mediterranean to Italy in 2017. They traveled alone, without any family member or adult responsible for them, often recounting stories of abuse and horror that occurred during their journeys . The number is 39 percent less than in 2016, when over 25,840 unaccompanied minors arrived in the country. Some 18,500 unaccompanied minors from at least 40 different nationalities are currently registered in Italy's migrant reception system. Read more:

Nice turning it up for my last hours driving down the Cote. Preparing for the long haul to Australia after a fly in fly out to see a very special person. It was only a few days but the Cote d'Azur didn't fail to disappoint, helped along of course by the best of company. See you soon France!
