"The Italian...has a flair for life, and it is generally a very lusty and effusive life."

[A. found the most amazing vintage travel guide for my sister's library - Fodor's Modern Guides - Italy 1957]
we are heading to Italy tomorrow. my sister and her family have created the most magical house in Umbria and my mum looks after it while they are in Hong Kong. so Italy is about family. we are fortunate to head there fairly often for long, lazy, Summer days, olive picking in Autumn, squeezing around the fire in Winter and berry hunting in Spring. it definitely is La Dolce Vita!
we haven't had a chance to take limi yet. so this will be her first trip and i can't wait....
