    ... good doctor, but to start with some pain killers. On the road for Paciano, where we were hoping to have a GF cooking class. No response to a couple of emails, we were not 100% sure that all was going to go according to plan.... We headed for the address on the website and rang the bell at the gate (this is a 40 acre olive farm with an electric gate similar to ours). Immediately we were greeted by our lovely hosts, who explained that they hadn't received our email and had been trying to ...

    ... we were walking to the water! Once in we noticed that there was plenty of floating moss and other things to dodge, but we were nice and cool!

    Time for dinner - Italian pork sausage with herbs, cooked in a tomato sauce with some zucchini and then served with some rice. Nice and simple, but good and tasty none the less! We relaxed under our tree and planned what needed to be done to prepare for the next few days.... And that is where we will leave you for the ...

He’s not bad, certainly adds a certain Italian ambience to our last night in Umbria. La dolce vita tonight; life is good!

    ... but still nice. She can go to Venice to get the nice stuff!

    We headed back to the Dub….to find Lyn had left his window wide open! Ooops; that could have been nasty. Also he parked nose in by a huge Italian motorhome, so I had to go out into the road to guide him back out. Italian’s are not known for their patience in waiting, but somehow we got it done. We were starving by then and were on the look out for something to eat. We passed a restaurant on ...

    The Day Luce Rode a Bike....Voluntarily!

    ... usual way, by reading, while Lyn went for a bike ride around the lake. He came back enthused by what he had seen and done. He rode about 12 miles and up some incredibly steep hills, does a 1 in 4 gradient mean anything to anyone??

    Once he came back and chilled for all of 5 minutes I decided it was time we went for a walk. The nearest town of Passignano was only a mile down the road so we sauntered down there. We walked near the lake, ...
