Short and sweet. We’re here and it feels like heaven! Sundowners yesterday evening after a 2300 km drive. It felt like we’d really earned them…

So in 2016 I turned 50. I was in Italy for my 21st, 30th and 40th. To keep this birthday tradition going I always knew I'd be in Italy for my 50! This blog starts with my 5 week adventure in Puglia but my love affair with Italy continues.....

You definitely earned them 😉
We might have followed these with a couple more and a very nice dinner in the village!
Excellent – I bet they are pleased to see you home 🙂
Very well deserved and I am pleased followed through and enjoyed more.
Have a beautiful week ahead.

Well, we couldn’t stop at just one!
Enjoy your holiday! I love that table, btw …
Local bar table – the bar is situated at the foot of a mountain, it’s such a spectactular spot, we love it!
I thought so (the table, I mean). Lucky you – enjoy your break!
Indeed you have guys 🙂 Looks like nature has been looking after The Mountain while you are away with that lovely green grass (perfect for the big man to mow 😉 ). Have a blast, you both deserve it 🙂
Apparently it’s been a funny summer – beautiful in June and July (normally July is the hottest month but it was relatively mild) then scorching in August but the mists and colder days – so everything is not as dry and yellow as it usually is at this time of year. It looks lovely J
🙂 I have my fingers, my toes, and everything else that can be crossed, crossed that this year isn’t going to be too long and dry. Seems hardly fair that you northerners got an extended winter but we got a shorter, milder one to compensate does it?! 😉
Totally not right!
Just watched a Top Gear special about Spain where the eejit trio drove hot sports cars through rural Spain and were showing these entire towns of luxury town houses and high rises that were completely empty…even an entire airport! It looks like we didn’t hear the whole truth about the Global financial crisis by a long shot. They were spouting off numbers like 52% youth unemployment that had my head reeling! Is it really like that over there?! Hopefully Spain is recovering by now and apparently it’s even worse in Greece. I can see why you guys headed over to create your own business in the U.K. now. I thought that you were a bit soft in the head to leave gorgeous Spain but now I see that it was just massively good business sense. Clever peeps 🙂 I reckon that possum is unable to get in to Sanctuary, I just got some pepino cuttings (sort of like a cucumber crossed with a honeydew melon in taste) in the mail, another friend is sending some more fruit seed and I am picking up some yellow raspberry canes tomorrow and maybe a passionfruit vine. Aussie houses just aren’t homes without a passionfruit vine draped over something ;). Hope you are enjoying your time back on that beautiful mountain 🙂
It must have been wonderful to get out of the car. Your drinks and a good meal was just what you needed.
Oh it’s so good to be able to walk again after so much sitting down!
A perfect picture of lazy summer days. I hope you intend to enjoy your break from busyness for a a while.
We don’t have much time, but we intend to enjoy every moment Diane!
Glad to hear you arrived safely. I’m watching the vuelta and your weather looks good 🙂
We went into a bar and the men were all fixed on watching the tv – they love it here! And yes, the weather is beautiful J
Brings back happy memories for us, enjoy your mountain holiday. XXXX
Thanks guys – hope you’re well xxx
Welcome home 🙂
Welcome home, Tanya! You not only earned those two but I hope there was plenty more left in the bottle(s). 🙂
We seem to be doing a lot of socialising this week 😉
I guess my invite was lost in the mail. 🙂
Damn that inefficient mail service L
Know you are glad to be back on the mountain. Looks like a lovely spot for sundowners!
Ah, love the photo and yes you earned them.
I really enjoyed this post–both the writing and the photos!
Nice Picture… Can’t wait to see more pictures….
You both are amazing! How you travel and move around like it is so easy!! I love your easygoing spirit!!
It looks wonderful! xx
Looks wonderful, enjoy your holiday!
The raw shrimp instead, it seems good ..?
The fruits are sliced into small pieces? why his shrimp?
It’s tapas which is typically small bite sized portions!
