Well, this is the most beautiful island and what a way to start the Italian adventure. Blue skies, blue ocean but nothing else to make you blue.

It is beliisima.

The villa we are staying in in San Bianco is so comfortable and thanks to Claudia and Jim we have a beautiful home for 2 weeks.

This coupled with access to a car......... an old banger but a good one we have everything we need. It is interesting though to drive on the right of the road and change gears with your right hand whilst negotiating sharp corners, mmmmmm. Mandy is coping well with it though. Did I mention that it has no power steering?

We have spotted quite a few golden retrievers and one called KIKI at the local pizzeria. So that has given us a small hit of our pooches.

Today , a friend of ours from Daylesford is coming over to the island to catch up for lunch. Jean has been enjoying sailing around the islands so it will be lovely to get her news. Won't mention that it is probably snowing back home!!

So today is lunch at Capo Nord with Jean and then tomorrow Jim and Claudia arrive. It has been a couple of years since we last saw each other. In fact it was August 2014 when Queen and Adam Lambert came to Melbourne. So let the festivities begin
