howdy & happy monday!
i've been pussyfooting around long enough about where carol & i are skipping off to in about a month.
umbria! yes, i'm going BACK to italy.
some pictures you say?
but of course!
we've rented a farmhouse (for a song!) that is plunked down in the middle of some sacred woods on the hillside of monteluco, overlooking the village of spoleto. we did our research and found spoleto to be the perfect base for us as it's a bit more off the tourist circuit than other villages in umbria.
also as soon as we saw this hot tub and its location overlooking an olive grove...well.
we were pretty much sold. ya know?
we are planning to Take It Easy. which means heaping doses of this: reading, travel journaling, cooking, walking, wine drinking, and hot tubbing. i won't be blogging from here, but when i get home i will regale you with travel tales and travel journal pages, photos galore and a few videos. though i think carol will be blogging...
to get to spoleto we'll walk through the forest and across an ancient footbridge. oh i can't wait for that!
