Hi everybody, I'm looking forward to going to our Casa in Calabria in three weeks time. I will be going on my own this time so I will have to practise my italian and do all the driving! Pat has to work so I will be there until early sept.In bournemouth here we have just had a hot weekend,but its turned chilly today. I cant wait for some decent weather in Italy. I just love the Italian icecream too!! I will take my 10kg ryanair allowance in books, so I can read all day.
