After a fabulous two months touring in France, Italy and Spain last year, we quickly developed a taste for more, and resolved to visit another part of Italy which we have yet see- Southern Italy that is, and of course Sicily.  Our itinerary is set and all things being equal, we will be picking up our car in Rome on August 29 and driving to Cassino – if you want to come along for the ride, we are off to the following places after Cassino : Sorrento, Naples, Praiano (Villa Horizon in Praiano–  a beautiful base for our week on the Amalfi Coast), Paestum, Matera, Tropea, Taormina,  Catania, Siracusa, Piazza Armerina, Palermo, and Pompeii ….. bring it on I say…

And by serendipity I came across this today – while in essence it is an advert for a travel company,  it is quite thought-provoking – especially since it encourages sensing the feel of the places we visit rather than ticking so-called highlights off a travel bucket list. The four of us prefer the first option – engaging with local people going about their daily lives, eating their regional cuisine and soaking up centuries of their history – and sharing the experience with close friends makes it even more perfect….
