Time for a catch up…maybe

Today is our first wet day for a month and with good internet I thought that maybe the time could be utilised with some blogging. So here I am in Paris sitting on my bed, listening to the rain outside and relaxing! What..you say! Yes I know…I can hardly believe it myself…but in my defense, […]

Sorrento to Sicily

I had a fabulous time in Sorrento and didn’t think the holiday could get any better. But traveling around Sicily is wonderful. We had to cross the ocean by ferry where the bus drove onto the ferry and 20 minutes later drove off again. You know how you see in movies the roads that snake […]

St Margareta to Portifino on …

Ahhh a little sleep in this morning 🙂 Santa Margherita is a wonderful picturesque town. It is obviously a beach resort that many tourists come to stay at for their holidays. The roads into the place are narrow, especially through the town, but all sorts of vehicles come and go the whole time. The place […]
