After a very hard Winter I have taken time out to renew myself and to push work along on my ‘little ruin’!
I spent the first weekend in June at the amazing first ever Lets Blog Abruzzo and I am hoping this gains momentum to become a regular event in some shape or form – even if it’s an informal weekend with attendees discovering a new part of Abruzzo together!!
We ate copious amounts of food from Borghi Autentici http://www.borghiautenticiditalia.it/assobai/
And enjoyed a marvelous selection of wine from Cantina Tollo http://www.cantinatollo.it/en
All within the amazing setting of Santo Stefano di Sessanio – the weather was not the warmest but the company kept us cosy for the weekend!
Monday 3rd June saw myself and 3 other bloggers whisked away to the Trabocchi Coast by Fabrizio Lucci of Italia Sweet Italia http://www.italiasweetitalia.com/ for 2 wonderful days and nights exploring Vasto and it’s surrounds – more to follow on this in coming weeks!!
One thing taking some time out in Abruzzo has shown me is that Abruzzo is a place where passionate people live or come to explore; all within a rich culture, amazing food and the green heart of Europe! Once you visit the people of Abruzzo will capture your heart forever!!
I am currently updating the blog and trying out a new theme so feel free to pass on your comments including any constructive criticism – without you there is no blog.
