Our next trip has been planned for about 18 months now, but finally we can almost smell the avgas at the airport… we’re just a little excited!
This occasion apparently required a new suitcase for Ginny, so we paid a visit to our favourite luggage shop Leather and Luggage in Mt Lawley. And what do you know, she managed to find the only PURPLE one in captivity!
(In case you didn’t already know, this photo tells it all – yes, purple is her favourite colour!)
So where are we going? Hint 1: we’ve been learning ‘survival’ Italian from the lovely Juliana from Fra Amici language school. Between us we think we’ll be able to find out where the toilets are (always useful!), how to ask for prices… and most importantly how to order a ‘vino bianco’ and English tea with milk!
Our first 10 days will see us in Rome, Tuscany and Piedmont. Then we train to Venice to meet our friends for the next part of our itinerary – which we won’t tell you about right now, but here’s Hint 2 – Viking Cruises!
