a word on fall and italy!
I can feel fall sneaking into the air here.
The days are still summer hot by the afternoon,
but the evenings are cool
and the mornings, crisp.
There’s still heat enough
for ice cream in the park
and lazy saturdays at the market.
There’s still weather
for shoes with no socks
and dresses with no tights.
But I feel that familiar fade,
that familiar tugging of fall.
It’s good though.
I’m going to make apple pies and coffee cakes.
I’m going to make crème caramel
and late summer crisps.
And in a couple weeks
I’m going to leave it all behind
for Italy. (!!)
So, I need your help with recommendations.
I’ll be in Abruzzo (about 10 minutes from Roseto delgi Abruzzi)
for the first bit of my journey
and then down in Puglia (about 20 minutes from Lecce)
for the last bit.
Anything I shouldn’t miss?
or anything at all you loved
while visiting Italy?
see you soon!
