Italy

May I introduce... Sestri Levante, a litle gem to be found on the Northern coast of Italy, it really is the stuff of picture postcards
We had an uneventful drive down South but then the fun began when we arrived in Casarza Ligure and the GPS sent us vertically up a road not much wider than the car! ever mindful of those who've followed their GPS's into ditches I said, I mean I shrieked 'this can't be right, this can't be right' (littered with various expletives) but alas we were on the correct road, 3kms of a tight windy steep narrow road which led to our pad for the week (below). We really were perched on top of the world but what a drive, I couldn't sleep for worrying about meeting someone travelling in the opposite direction! By the end of our stay we'd perfected the technique of leaving when everyone had come up the hill to work and returning during siesta before the other half went down again!
Dez Rez, now this is where we should have been staying...
Beautiful colours, loads of inspiration, I shall tell you about the snake tomorrow...

Swoon. Really the stuff dream vacations are made of, minus the occasional snake.
