Then we went to the Pantheon, the oldest Roman building in the world, then the Trevi Fountain and the...

8th July 2019

In the midst of the record-breaking heatwave that hit France in late June, I flew out to the south west of the country with a bag full of sun lotion and glitter.

Staying in lovely Lucca, Tuscany

21st June 2019

Recently I took some time out to spend a month exploring Italy. The plan for the first 10 days was to visit the Naples/Sorrento/Amalfi area, seeing as much as we could with the kids who were travelling with us. Then give them a taste of true traveller life by moving on to Rome for a few days before they flew back home. And it was relentless. Exciting and brilliant, but also tiring and relentless. Did I mention relentless? Kids safely delivered back to the UK, we moved on to...
