[dropcap size=dropcap]I[/dropcap]t’s been an hiatus of almost a year since my last post (yes, it’s been that long since I was in bell’Italia). I was feeling sorry for myself, thinking that I couldn’t write about Italy without being there to experience it first hand − and suddenly, the light came on! My italian journey is ongoing, albeit in Australia! Italian language lessons, culture and food still are a big part of my life.
I’ve been making some changes to my blog…a new look (hope you like it!) which has taken some learning to achieve and I’ll be posting regularly again with my thoughts and experiences on my personal Italian journey.
For now, it’s about the memories of my last Italian summer…
With the backdrop of an Adelaide winter − cold and wet with mostly grey skies − I remember my summer in Italy last year. Under a hot Italian sun I swam in the ocean in Liguria, sweltered in the humidity of Verona and found tranquil moments in beautiful places with Italian friends. These are some of the memories!
The beautiful Ligurian Riviera
The Hanbury gardens in Ventimiglia deserves a special mention
Summer in the city of Verona, hot and humid!
The Italian experience is really all about the people you meet. New friends, old friends, great times!
Alla prossima! …Isabella
