Wow.... It seems that I am making a habit of being wrong.... At about 7.30 last night Emma posed the question "What is it going to be tonight?" referring to our luck with music, fireworks, noisy neighbours or other things that can keep us from a decent night sleep.... I responded with "Nothing, I think we will sleep like babies!" It wasn't until about 10.30 when we went to bed that I was proven wrong! The sound of a live band seemed to make sense after Emma had commented on the amount ...

... non-main roads and our buddy the GPS lady again tried to send us off the beaten track! Not this time love! I stuck to my intuition and after a few roads that we thought weren't really the right size for much more than our car, we finally made it to Villa D'Este.

What a place! Originally a monastry, it was gifted to Cardinal D'Este when he became the governor of the town of Tivoli, and at the time was a palace. However, in the next 22 years he worked to make ...

It followed on from the last book I read about the evils of sugar called “Sweet Poison” by David Gillespie, and excellent read and food ...

... and anchovies (big thumbs down from us both but Lyn ate it!). The pizzas were made fresh by a specialist pizza chef. Wow. The dough was just perfect. Thin but still slightly chewy. Best pizza ever. Tegz left loads of hers though; she said it tasted like cheesy wotsits. Strange girl; she loves cheesy wotsits!

From there we went to Claire’s recommendation of Bagni Vignoli, which is famous for it’s thermal baths. Clueless as to where these actually ...

Well, we all managed to sleep pretty well considering. In fact, I would say it was my best night's sleep yet. I am very definitely not a cold temperature person; the cold makes me miserable. Once I get warm I’m happy! It was lovely not to wake up in the night cold.



We had a lot to sort out today; a tent to be pitched, stuff to be dried out. This took quite a while, and we chilled out afterwards. Tegz and I chilled out ...
