Here we go again


Here we go again

Monday, September 15th, 2014

There must be a song of that title but in this case it means that I’m headed back to Italy. First stop Bologna. I will be there by myself for two weeks seeing friends, trying to refresh my Italian and generally having a relaxing but good time. Then the lovely Ms. K arrives. We will stay in Bologna for about 10 days. Many of my friends also speak passable english (sometimes excellent english) so she won’t feel left out of conversations. My friend Paolo has said that we can use his apartment for a week and hopefully he will come through on that. After that we head to Giulianova in Abruzzo via train. A family that I stayed with last year when doing my travels to the south had said that K and I can use their apartment near the beach during this off-season time rent free. We’ll buy them a really nice dinner in any case. Of course that means a win-win situation for us as well since we also get a very nice dinner. After a week in Abruzzo we will probably go south to Puglia. A train to Bari where we will rent a car and see some lovely sights with a couple of nights planned back in Bari (which sounds pretty fascinating) before heading back to Bologna to spend a couple of nights before the flight back. So this 5th trip is only 6 weeks – the shortest so far – and 4 for K. I’ll be blogging of course. So I hope to be able to report some fine adventures.
