Have a good time and if the weather is anything like here in Austria you are looking at gorgeous grey skies and thunderstorms be like being back in the mud... Seriously we are having great weather averaging 25C since April... and skies so blue... :drinks:

That's warm for Austria this time of year, isn't it? It will be nice if the weather's good but it's the break more than anything at the moment. Just need to chill out by the pool with a cold beer or 2.

Buon viaggio, tranquillo, e spaghetti, pizza e vino perfette!

I hope that makes sense - never learnt Italian.

I wish you sunny weather - let your souls dangle for a while!

A postcard would be nice! Have fun!

Grazie, Olham. I understood you perfectly. Proverò a trasmettere una cartolina. Una buona idea.

Ciao tutti.

Italy is a beautiful country. I was there for a few days last summer.

 

Lake Trasimeno? Did you see the ghost of Hannibal and his elephants there? :grin:

No, but I think the inhabitants of Isola Magiore must have got a great view of the battle from the top - splendid view.

The pizza is great - much better than yucky deep-pan stuff - especially when cooked in traditional pizza ovens. Found a place that offers over 40 different toppings and all the ones I've had there are excellent. Trouble is that it is so popular you need to book early and turning up on the off chance of a table being available ofeten ends in disappointment.

 

Olham, I know I am a lucky blighter and it has just been circumstances/fate that have made it so. It also helps to have family there :grin:.

I grant all that to you, tranquillo, really. Such a break must be lifting one's spirits.

I haven't realised my vague plan of travelling to Flanders this year - all my extra money

went into the computer upgrade (but it was worth it!). So maybe next year I'll finally do it,

before I'm getting too old (I'll go there by bicycle, with a tent and camping stuff!)

Tranquillo, you lucky bugger you, what a fine vacation you must have had! I would dearly love a few weeks to kick around such beauty spots. And thanks for the postcard. :biggrin:

 

Cheers!

If you do get too old, don't forget to take your walking stick to Flanders. You can use it drive off annoying young people if they happen to come too close to your tent. :grin:

 

I must make a new trip to Italy some day. It's truly a beautiful country, the food and drink are great, and you can practically walk among ancient history there.
