Cobbled streets and olive trees

Cobbled streets and olive trees

Today I’m escaping to the countryside, somewhere idyllic in the Mediterranean, Italy perhaps, will you join me? Let’s pretend it’s Summer there and enjoy a day basking in the sunshine, taking in the sights and sounds and local cuisine. Vespa rides, olive groves a new wardrobe too, what could be better?
