Destination: ITALIA


All arrangements, tickets, and transport are final. In a few short weeks, I'll be in the shade of an olive tree possibly enjoying a small bottle of Brasilena or a Crodino.

Yes, we're going to Italy.

We'll be spending a month in Calabria, possibly a few of those days at the beach, then making our way North to the Val d'Aosta.

To get in the spirit, I've adorned la tavola with lemons! One of my favourite things about Calabria is the wonderful citrus fruit. Lemons that taste of the Mediterranean sunshine.

We're very much looking forward to the trip. We haven't been in a few years and there are lots of things about our Italy that I'm looking forward to sharing with you, dear reader. Hope you can join us from time to time..

Hi Mary,
Which part of Calabria will you be heading to? I hope you and the family have a great trip!

Hi Leanne,
Thank you and thanks for stopping by la tavola. Looking forward to visiting family and friends in San Giorgio Morgeto and other places around RC. It's been 5 years so I expect lots of changes.
take care,

Thank you Creampuff. Nice to hear you've had a good holiday. Paris sounds lovely!

Hi Nigel and thank you. We are looking forward to it. Although it might be one of those 'vacations' that I'll need a vacation to recover from!
