Im here, Im safe and eating icecream (which means I am well).
I arrived on Weds to the chimes and deights of Lori and Simona, our hosts. I was caught up in a bit of a pickle at the airport so Stu and Jane walked through customs leaving me waiting around as they tried to find our bus. Next thing they hear is my name being announced over the tannoy in Italian and unbeknowing to them, I had 4 polizia practically rugby tackling me over the fact I had left my purse on the plane. Jane thought I was being had for drug smuggling but no, my purse had been located and it took 4 cops to fill out the paperwork and almost manhandling me over the shame of such a crime!
The rest of the day I helped the Italian girls pack kits and prepare for the show which started an hour ago. Im not kidding you, I have never seen a retreat like this (amazing) and the kits are all exceptional. Its buzzing here with students from Denmark, Norway, Isreal and Italy - plus Jane from the UK. I went to bed at 8 that night and woke up at 8 the next mroning - i was well and truly knackered (putting it mildly).
Thursday took Jane, Stu and I to Sorrento and Positano. I have a million pictures to share of these two stunning places (if you cant wait, google the images of Positano to see just what I mean). It was here we had a beautiful lunch by the sea (garlic mussels - hello?) and finished with these beauties.
We walked for miles and had a wonderful day. I was in awe of Positano, truly mesmerised. We finished our day with Spumante al fresco in Sorrento and a bit of emergency scrapping in the hotel. I eventually got to meet Wendy Senger of Tattered Angels and the best dressed hair in the business, Heidi Swapp of whom both are completely charming.
Will of course upload some lovely pics on my return.
PS: Miss you Ellie and Mark....oh and that scratty little pooch of mine, Eddy xx
