It's happening & I cannot wait!
Flights are booked and I'm planning my travels through Italy. First stop - fair Verona. After having watched 'Letters to Juliet' recently, I was taken back by the fantasy surrounding Casa di Giulietta (Juliet's House). People from all over the world come to visit the Capuleti household to sit in her courtyard and write her letters, to which her secretaries will reply. I want to write my own.
For once, I have the means to go and do anything I want - I've no ties holding me back and I have no plans. With my main passion being travel, I've decided to follow my own feet and set out by myself. Most people are shocked that I'm going solo, and want to know why - well, after the last few years I've had, you'd understand why I'd want to be alone, a little alienated, and back in one of my favourite countries...I also miss the ice-creams and pizza.
If you know any local haunts, have any words of wisdom or live in the Veneto or the north - please get in touch. I'd love to hear from you.
