As the end of summer drew near Nathan and I took a trip to Italy for our summer holiday. We were lucky enough to be staying at my supervisor from works apartment in Vallelarga, Abruzzo which was awesome – comfy, clean and well-equipped with a real authentic Italian feel. We really enjoyed the use of the TV and stack of DVD’s when it was thunder storming!



The view from the bedroom where we slept was a highlight too – opening the traditional shutters each morning to the mountain view was amazing. We weren’t so keen on the chickens that lived next door though – they constantly clucked away all times of the day!


Perfect Getaway

During our week in Italy we were able to achieve the right balance of relaxation and chilling with being a tourist and visiting some local sights. The highlight for me was definitely our ‘holiday from the holiday’ to Vasto and chilling on the beach. Closely followed by our day at Lago di San Domenico – simply stunning!

Here’s a list of the different places we visited and what we got up too. Click on the places below to find out more 🙂

    1. It’s such a gorgeous country, have been to quite a few different places in Italy now. Where we were you would need a car but I’ve visited Venice, Rome and Florence before and you can do it all on foot with public transport 🙂

  1. I was meant to go to Tuscany last year but unfortunately my holiday was cancelled. However I am hoping to go to Rome this year which should be fun. Are you planning to go to Italy again?

    1. Oh wow, I would love to visit Tuscany! That is such a shame the holiday was cancelled – I hope you get to go again another time. I love Rome – such a lovely city with so much to do, am sure you will love it! I would love to go back to Italy and see some of the Lakes, maybe Lake Como 🙂

  2. I’ve not yet been to Italty, but the photos are breath-taking! I love a easy going weekend, though, chickens or not, it would be lovely to be so fun to explore that part of the world! Next time you get back, hope you bring along ear luffs =)! xo Blessings!

  3. That was kind of your supervisor to loan you his apartment. It is a cozy looking place. I have never been to Italy but I yearn for some of their history and architectural sights. I’m glad you had a nice time.
