We too the back roads to licciana Nardi to our home for the next five nights. I feel like a school kid that's just got his license a week ago. These Italian drives are MAD ! And our little electronic saviour, our GPS is not much use on the rural back roads, mind you we did see alot of Liguria . It was a great relief to reach the sanctuary of Casa Isabel. The 'little' pink house on the corner is actually huge. 4 stories high with modern appliances surrounding the ancient stone walls, high arched ceilings and a picture postcard view from every window. We have driven around the local area to get our bearings and settled in to plan our sortees into the Toscano countryside.

The scenery looks gorgeous. After looking at your pics I've been on the net day dreaming about a holiday for US! I hope you've been getting your fill of home-made pasta and yummy red wine - AND I hope you are bringing some recipe's home!! I can just imagine you trying to drive over there Rusty.... of course... they say driving in Paris is even worst! (if you can imagine it). I bet Mum has been clutching onto several parts of the car - all nervous like - just as she did when I was learning to drive! hehe Can't wait to hear your next update!!! ps. was lovely to get a call from you the other night Mum :) Lots of love, Sare xxx
